In this Connections video, Bishop Ward speaks about Pilgrimage 2013.
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ, who gives us great joy. Pilgrimage is just days away. Pilgrimage is the stellar youth event of the North Carolina Annual Conference.
For over 20 years, thousands of young people have gathered in November for a weekend of inspiration and connection and service and commitment. We give thanks that thousands are again registered and this Friday evening, they will arrive at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville.
Pilgrimage is offered through our Annual Conference for young people and those who work with them, so that young people may return to their home communities inspired and prepared to lead in youth ministry in every place.
I invite your prayers all across the North Carolina Annual Conference for young people, for those who gather at Pilgrimage, and for those who have yet to gather in our congregations.
May this time of joyful retreat of many young people be a great gift to our church in every place.
