SEED Project members gathered on February 22 in Denver to welcome five new members: Jeni Hiatt Umble (Living Light of Peace), Steve Goering and Pam Duncan (Sojourn Mennonite), Matt Shedden (Defiance Church) by phone, and Matt Zimbelman (Mountain Community Mennonite). Ongoing members are Glenn Balzer and Rhoda Blough co-chairs, Paul Johnson, Marie Voth and Ken Gingerich, MSMC Moderator.

The group spent time reviewing recent involvement and support of Casa de Paz, RAWTools, TiLT (Taos Initiative for Life Together) and Watershed Way groups, and Beloved Community’s plan to engage Fernando Perez and Rebeca Torres in a multi-cultural church planting effort. The SEED Project will continue to nurture new movements across the conference from potential and emerging gatherings in New Mexico and along the Front Range, to exploring ways of re-invigorating small congregations and supporting a homeless housing village project in Denver.

“It is wonderful to see the engagement and energy of the new members,” said co-chair Rhoda Blough. “This is MSMC at its best and it’s exciting to be part of a project that pays attention to the movement of the Spirit both within, and also along the edges of our conference.”
