2017 Impact Detroit Highlights

Dear Pastors & Members of our GLC Churches,
The Midwinter Conference for Covenant pastors has been a foundational experience of spiritual renewal and personal refreshment for decades. It is one of the best ministries the ECC has engaged in throughout the years. This year’s line-up of speakers and workshop leaders will equip us, and the corporate worship and fellowship with colleagues will nourish our souls.
My hope is that all of our pastors will plan to attend and that all of our congregants will make sure that they are able to go. To help make that possible there are scholarships available from the ECC with additional financial help through the GLC.
Pastors: If you need scholarship assistance in order to attend Midwinter, act now. The deadline for applications is December 1. (See Registration details in sidebar)
On Saturday, October 21 over 100 people gathered for The Leadership Connection, a workshop training event for current and future leaders. The GLC staff would like to thank our gracious host church, Faith Covenant of Farmington Hills, Michigan for their warm hospitality and welcome and give a special thanks to our wonderful presenters and roundtable facilitators.
Fabio & Johnna Muñiz, Serve Globally Missionaries, started the morning off leading the group in worship and Dick Lucco, Executive Director of Ministry Development for the ECC, was the plenary speaker. He focused on being the feet of Christ in our neighborhoods.
Two workshop sessions were held offering 10 topics for leadership development, including:
• Resolving Our Differences – Ron Whitmore
• Best Practices for Church Compliance – Jack Nichols
Women Ministries Retreats
The Women Ministries of the GLC had two retreats this fall. The theme for both retreats was “Anchored”. The first retreat was at Portage Lake Bible Camp in Onekama, Michigan, September 22-24. Meagan Gillan, ECC Director of Women Ministries, was the speaker and worship was led by a team of women from LifeChurch (Canton, Michigan).

The second retreat was held at Camp Mission Meadows in Dewittville, New York, September 29-Oct 1. The speaker was Rev. Kanyere Eaton, pastor of Fellowship Covenant Church in Bronx, New York. The worship was led by Kelsey Kotash of Grace Covenant Church (Clay, New York). A 5K run/walk to support the Lycee Vanette School for Girls in Congo was held at both locations.
