Invite Welcome Connect, created by Mary Parmer and developed first in the Diocese of Texas, is now a ministry of the Beecken Center of the School of Theology, University of the South, Sewanee.

Invite Welcome Connect is a  ministry of relational evangelism and congregational empowerment allowing churches to become places of genuine connection for inviting the faith journeys and stories of everyone, enabling deeper journeys of Christian discipleship and enabling the Spirit of Christ to be at the heart of each church's hospitable mission of spreading the Good News. Invite Welcome Connect has circulated throughout the Episcopal Church and, to date, has been presented in 50 dioceses, at three Episcopal seminaries, and in three universities. Invite Welcome Connect has also been presented among the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe and to the Anglican Church in Canada.
