PIV gathers as family at Kanuga

Province IV welcomed more than 200 deputies, presenters and guests to its 2014 convocational Synod June 4-6 at Kanuga Conference Center, near Hendersonville, NC. Deputies heard mid-triennial reports on a variety of topics, including TREC (Task Force Reimagining the Episcopal Church) and the Study of Marriage Task Force, and spent time in workshops learning about the church's work against Human Trafficking, Episcopal Relief & Development, and a number of provincial networks.
