October Webinar: Panel Discussion on the 2023 Focus
By Joyce Landers, Vice President of the United Thank Offering Board
The United Thank Offering Board is offering a webinar discussing the 2023 grants focus on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 7 p.m. EST. Register in advance for this meeting here.
We have invited people who are involved in ministries related to the focus to speak about their experiences as well as other ministry options. Our main speaker is the Rev. Peggy Bryan. Peggy is pastoral associate of outreach at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Silicon Valley, California, one of the richest areas in the world yet home to one of the largest jails in the country. Peggy and a team of dedicated and determined volunteers plunged into the system from three faith-driven angles: custody, re-entry and social justice. Peggy has received two UTO grants to start and then sustain the ministry during COVID-19. Chris McNabb is the Program Officer for Recruitment & Engagement with Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Neighbor to Neighbor program. Before this current role, Chris served as Priest-in-Charge at St. Francis Episcopal Church on Long Island, New York. Prior to that he was the Curate for Caritas, Justice, and Healing at Trinity Church in Princeton, NJ. When not working, Chris enjoys hanging out with his dog Lucky and exploring all that Seattle has to offer!
The purpose of this webinar is to help you understand what the 2023 grant focus entails and what kinds of projects UTO hopes to fund. Keep in mind that the focus is broad and covers a wide range of issues. This includes preventative or intervention ministries that address issues that lead to incarceration, ministries that assist current inmates and/or their families, prison reform projects, and post-prison or re-entry ministries.
When you register, you will receive a confirmation email containing the link to attend the webinar. You will also receive a reminder email prior to the webinar.
The UTO Board is grateful for you and your participation in UTO. We invite you to practice gratitude often and help us to encourage others to live a gratitude-filled life.
