Aloha All Saints’ Leaders and Visionaries,
Leading a congregation to grow takes, in addition to the Holy Spirit and a congregation’s willingness and desire to grow, vision and leadership.
In partnership with the other Episcopal Churches on Kauai and the greater Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii, All Saints' is excited to announce we have an amazing opportunity upcoming on Friday, January 31st from 5:30PM - 8:30PM.
Renowned Rector, Church visionary, and speaker, The Reverend Bill Tully, will lead an evening for Kauai’s Episcopal Churches focused on “Church Vision and Leadership.” While Reverend Tully's experience is from a context as far opposite one can get from our life here in Hawai’i, the principles he has to relay are universal and transcend our differences.
We would like to get a diverse group from ‘Ohana, representing a variety of ministries, leadership roles, experiences, and demographics . . . So we would like to invite to participate in this event!
In order for All Saints’ to continue thriving as a center of spiritual formation, family-centered ministries, early-childhood education, social activism, and community outreach, we need our members to actively engage conversations and opportunities around the Church’s vision and leadership. Sustaining, nurturing, and cultivating the Church’s vision and leadership of All Saints’ is the work of the whole ‘Ohana.
Please consider joining us, and our brothers and sisters from the other Episcopal Churches on Kauai, for this special evening. If you are interested in attending the event, please email Fr. Ryan, firstname.lastname@example.org, by January 24th. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me.

About Rev. Tully
The Rev. Bill Tully, retired as rector of St. Bartholomew’s, NY City in January 2012. While rector, he literally reinvented the dying church of a few hundred people inside and out, upgrading facilities from worn to resplendent and adding more than 3000 parishioners during his tenure of nearly two decades. One year into his tenure at St. Bart’s, Tully opened a café and later added a 10-bed shelter, food pantry and soup kitchen, which served 80,000 meals to the needy annually. He remade the church relevant in the bustling urban center, where street people and worshipers peacefully coexist. His radical welcome mat worked to bring life back to the church that continues to be a beacon for all in the center of the city.
