Town Hall Meeting

January 30, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The Meeting is a workshop to connect faith and civic leaders to:
1) brainstorm ideas and create opportunities to partner on space-sharing concepts between churches and various organizations;
2) provide an opportunity to network with regional faith, non-profit, educational, and civic groups; and
3) establish a sustainable plan to continue working towards creative partnerships between faith and community organizations.

In the Oil Region, we have numerous large historic churches that are looking for ways to adapt to smaller memberships and funding sources while continuing to play integral roles in their communities. As this issue extends beyond the Oil Region, anyone is welcome to attend to learn more or to share their experiences.

The Town Hall Meeting will be presented by Partners for Sacred Places (Partners), of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with support from the Oil Region Alliance and Bridge Builders Community Foundations. Partners, founded in 1989, is the only national, non-sectarian, non-profit organization focused on building the capacity of congregations of historic sacred places to better serve their communities as anchor institutions, nurturing transformation, and shaping vibrant, creative communities.

Please direct questions about the meeting to Jenn Burden, Oil Region Alliance at jburden@oilregion.org or 814.677.3152 or to Trenton Moulin, Bridge Builders Community Foundations at trenton@bbcf.org or 814.677.8687.

RSVPs are appreciated to jburden@oilregion.org. The meeting is free to attend.
Off street parking is available behind the church from Buffalo Street.
