SMC Camp Meeting

SMC Camp Meeting

Sojourners is part of the Shalom Mission Communities network, a group of communities that share similar commitments. Each year representatives from each community meet together, and every three years we have a “camp meeting” in which we gather to learn from and enjoy each other. About every three years, we invite leaders from the other communities and a local pastor to visit us and give us feedback. The visiting group interviews each one of our members, and then gives a report to the entire congregation on strengths and areas of concern. SMC has proved to be an important network of encouragement and accountability for us.

Although we are not formally affiliated, we feel a lot of affinity with Mennonites and the Anabaptist tradition (emphasis on community, peacemaking, discipleship). Other important connections for us are our friends at the Ekklesia Project, and The Church of the Servant King congregations in Portland and Eugene.
