As Advent draws near, Great Plains Repent and Resist Ash Wednesday is looking to solidify leaders from each district who will be willing to help lead this important action in the new year! A District Organizer is someone who is willing to:
Find a location for this act of repentance to happen on Ash Wednesday
Find individuals and churches to participate on Ash Wednesday
Host or find leaders to host the act of repentance
Be in touch with Rev. Ashley Prescott Barlow-Thompson as needs arise
District Organizers will receive a welcome packet at the end of November detailing how to get started on finding locations and welcoming people to sign up. In January, they will receive a resource packet with worship ideas, hourly themes for each hour of Repent and Resist and more information on hosting this powerful event.
Check out our facebook page to find out more about leading in your district and contact Rev. Ashley Prescott Barlow-Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. We’d love two organizers in every district and many of our districts are in need of one or more leaders!
