Poster Sessions

 Parish ministry leaders have more wisdom and experience than we can share during the 2020 Mid-Atlantic Congress (MAC). We are adding poster sessions this year to give successful and experienced ministry practitioners the opportunity to share a "success story" or "best practice" with other participants who may be looking for a new idea or are trying to solve a problem.
