Steve Mullaney dreamed of applying what he teaches in the School for Formation in the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. He used grant funding to hire and coach a Latino coordinator of Convivencia, a dinner gathering for Latino undergraduates and mentors. The gatherings are intended to affirm the Belovedness of the participants, to build community, and to support their questions about God and faith.
Together they studied and applied community organizing methods to launch the group, which will complete its second year in spring ’22. Mullaney believes that evangelism has a natural home in campus ministry, and that his model is transferable.
