GLENDORA, Calif., Sept. 19, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ -- With great excitement, the Wesleyan Holiness Consortium announces that it has changed its name to the Wesleyan Holiness Connection. While visiting some of the WHC networks in Brazil, founder and chair Dr. Kevin Mannoia began hearing the use of the word "connection" among the leaders. It was intended to communicate the strong relational nature of the gatherings and avoid the more business-oriented term "consortium."
Realizing that this word would also allow for both languages to share the same word, and also that this was a deeply meaningful term in our own theological heritage, he was happy to bring the idea to the WHC Board and Steering Committee. Both groups strongly supported the change of name to be "Wesleyan Holiness Connection."
The new name and refreshed logo marks approximately ten years of ministry expansion of the WHC. Regarding the name change and logo refresh, Mannoia says, "I am happy to share this new logo, new name, and fresh resolve to follow the nudge of the Holy Spirit in bringing unity through the transformational message of holiness that brings clarity and power to our mission in the 21st Century."
