Warm greetings in the Name of our Risen Savior Jesus Christ! The NAFAUM 17th Convocation & Young Leaders Summit will be held on August 2-5, 2023 at Christ UMC, Honolulu, Hawaii with the theme: “God Is On the Move…” (Matthew 14:22-33).
Hawaii is a global destination and home to the second largest Filipino population in the United States. Missionally, we have thriving Filipino congregations in Hawaii and 1993 was the last time we held the Convocation on the Hawaiian shores. We are excited, resilient and hopeful about our future as Filipino and Filipino American United Methodists. We will gather in Hawaii for the NAFAUM 17th Convocation affirming the foundational mission of the church “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
Therefore, I would like to invite you, your family and your congregation to come join us for the NAFAUM 17th Convocation & Young Leaders Summit. Early Bird Registration ends May 31st and Regular Registration ends July 15th. Please register now at www.nafaum.org. Limited number of rooms are available in Pagoda Hotel https://pagodahotel.com at discounted rate (group code: NAFAUM). Daily transportation between Pagoda Hotel and the Convocation venue will be provided. Make your hotel reservations now while rooms are available.
Your prayers and support signify the strength and resolve of our shared mission, ministries and connectionalism, as people called Methodists, to expand our global outreach in terms of discipleship, plant new faith communities, revitalize existing congregations and transform our communities for Christ’s sake.
May the Lord richly bless you and your ministry!
Grace & Peace,
Rev. Edgar De Jesus
