The Parish As Steward – A Special LectureFr. Barnabas Powell
How (and why!) do we transform our communities from being inward-focused to outward facing? In our keynote address, Fr. Barnabas Powell of Sts. Raphael, Nicholas, and Irene GOC of Cumming, GA () and Faith Encouraged Ministries ( ) challenge the parish leadership of the communities within the Metropolis of Pittsburgh to look to the needs of our local communities and people, who thirst for the “Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of Truth” (1 Tim ). The only way to parish health and growth is authentic and intentional Christian witness.
