Join The Spiritual Renewal Covenant
Clergy and laity are asked to join conference delegation and Bishop Cho in ‘spiritual renewal’ covenant. This covenant was originally signed by the Virginia delegation to the Southeastern Jurisdiction in support of Rev. Dr. Cho’s leadership throughout the episcopal process.
We wish to continue this support of Bishop Cho as he begins his work with the Virginia Annual Conference. Please consider this commitment carefully, and, if you feel so led, add your name to this covenant and join us on this journey.
