During Annual Conference, the Eastern PA Evangelical Connection (EPEC) will host a special breakfast June 15, 7 to 9 AM, at Arnold’s Family Fun Center, 2200 West Drive, Oaks, PA, in the Theatre Room. The Rev. Tom Lambrecht, Vice President and General Manager of Good News, will speak on “A Faithful Way Forward.” Good News is a 50-year-old renewal movement within the UMC.
Lambrecht, a founding trustee and leader of the newly formed Wesleyan Covenant Association, served on the Council of Bishop’s Commission on a Way Forward. A clergy member and evangelical renewal leader in the Wisconsin Conference, he has worked with the Good News Legislative Team at seven General Conferences, the last three as Coordinator of the Renewal and Reform Coalition. He has submitted numerous briefs and participated in oral arguments before the Judicial Council.
The Evangelical Connection’s mission is to articulate, teach and advocate evangelical and orthodox Christianity among the laity and clergy of the Eastern PA Conference. We exist for the encouragement and fellowship of like-minded Christian believers, to inform the Eastern PA Conference on choices, issues and candidates, by articulating, teaching, and advancing vital Christianity. The Connection is part of a nationwide network of United Methodists who share this vision for Christ’s church and is open to all conference members. Our website is www.epaec.org.
