2021 Bluegrass District Huddle

Support Staff and Non-Frontline Workers:
Called to Rise Up!

Memphis Union Mission, Memphis, Tennessee

October 8, 2021

Sponsored by Memphis Union Mission, this is an opportunity for those within driving distance of our district serving as support staff and non-frontline workers who regularly have contact with guests (e.g., kitchen, maintenance, drivers, etc.) to come away for a time of refreshing and discussion. The theme for this Bluegrass District Huddle is "Called to Rise Up!" We will be meeting at Memphis Union Mission, located at 383 Poplar Avenue in Memphis, with a tour of the facility as part of our time together.

Dr. Bartholomew Orr, Senior Pastor of Brown Missionary Baptist Church, will be our featured speaker. Breakfast and lunch will also be included. Don't miss this opportunity to gather for a time of discussion and inspiration.

Hope to see you there!
