Washington DC and West Virginia

In June we had the opportunity to travel together to Washington DC and West Virginia to attend a conference and visit several urban ministries.  Our friend Richard, from the ministry Ezekiel’s Place, arranged our agenda.  We spent 4 days at a guest house in Adams Morgan and visited urban ministries that varied from youth centers to leadership programs to coffee house churches to housing advocacy groups.  We had the chance to talk with a lot of leaders from the Church of the Savior extended community, many of whom pioneered these ministries and projects 20+ years ago.  It was great exposure for us.  For the last part of the trip, we headed two hours west to a beautiful farm in West Virginia-Ezekiel’s Place.  Richard and his wife have turned this beautiful farm into a retreat house where they host small groups and camps.  The conference/retreat was called “Simply Following Jesus” and the main speaker was Chris Haw, co-author of the book Jesus for President.
