ECO National Gathering

Many leaders agree that the church is currently in crisis. We are desperate for transformation but most of us don’t know where or how to begin. Yet, we know we can no longer do things the way we have always done them. Metanoia is a powerful Greek word that is often translated as repentance. However, the meaning of metanoia goes so much deeper. It doesn’t just mean repentance, but a true change of mind and heart. 

Metanoia is a complete transformation that calls us back to the heart of God and inspires us to live lives that are aligned with the life and teachings of Jesus. We are excited to seek out practical ways each of us in our churches can authentically live out God’s call on our lives and ministries. Let’s embrace metanoia together. It’s time for change.
