2016 Christian Formation Conference

June 13, 2016 - June 17, 2016

About the Conference

Theme: Take. Break. Bless. Give.

These are the words of our faith, but how do we live them out in this complicated, multi-cultural, technologically advanced century?  Learn with us about how to be the Church beyond our houses of worship.

The week will include more than 20 workshops covering such topics as racism sensitivity training, means of reconciliation, ministry with the homeless, how to host a dinner church and a wide variety of nuts-n-bolts workshops about formation basics.

Midweek we will hold a Stop Hunger Now event in which all participants, from 2-92, will join to package 10,000 meals for the world’s hungry.  You will learn how to host such an event in your parish – all for 29 cents a meal.  Will you pledge a small amount to make this effort possible?  Watch the progress we make throughout the year on the Formation Conference webpage.

About the Rev. Winnie Varghese

Winnie, director of community outreach for Trinity Wall Street, is a 1994 graduate of Southern Methodist University in Dallas and Union Theological Seminary in 1999. She was ordained to the priesthood in 2000. A contributing editor of “What Shall We Become: The Future and Structure of the Episcopal Church,” Winnie has served as rector of St. Mark’s in the Bowery, the oldest site of continuous worship in New York. She was a member of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church from 2006-2012. Winnie also has served as a chaplain at UCLA and Columbia University. She and her partner live in New York City with their two teenagers. 

About the Staff

Chaplain: Anna Olson

A graduate of Union Seminary and Stanford University, Anna was ordained in the Diocese of Los Angeles in 2000. She lives and works in the diverse Koreatown neighborhood of LA, where she has served as rector of Saint Mary’s Episcopal Church since 2011. St. Mary’s is Los Angeles’ only historic Japanese-American Episcopal church. Anna specializes in working with historic congregations to connect with the needs and gifts of new neighbors, developing models for multilingual and enculturated liturgy as well as liturgy in public spaces, and in opening space for marginalized communities to reshape and revitalize the Church. She married her husband Steve in 2013, after waiting twenty years together for marriage in California to be legal for all. They have two daughters. Anna is fluent in Spanish and working on learning some Korean. She is proud of her 2nd-degree black belt in taekwondo. Her first book, “Claiming Resurrection in the Dying Church: Freedom beyond Survival,” will be published by Westminster John Knox in Spring 2016.

Bring the whole family

As with all Kanuga summer conferences, you can make this week a mountain vacation for the whole family. While parents attend sessions, young people participate in their own programs directed by our carefully selected staff in a safe and fun Christian environment. Programs for young people will begin at 3 p.m. on Monday, June 13. There is a $100/week fee for nursery care (under age 3).

Spouses can fish, hike, play tennis or nearby golf, relax on the porch or by the lake and visit area attractions. The whole family can spend time together in the afternoons and evenings.
