Clarence Gilyard at NRVC jubilee gathering

NRVC is pulling out all the stops for its 25th anniversary Convocation, to take place November 6-10 in Chicago, including having a celebrity guest host: Clarence Gilyard, actor, director, and author.

Gilyard, a committed Catholic, is best known for his starring TV roles in Matlock and Texas Ranger. His movie roles include Top Gun, Karate Kid II, and Die Hard. Gilyard currently is associate professor in the College of Fine Arts-Department of Theatre at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is a consultant to the Communications Committee of the U.S. bishop's conference, and is a member of the board of Holy Cross Family Ministries. 

The convocation will also feature:

  • Workshops by top experts
  • Celebration of 25 years of vocation ministry
  • Keynotes by fresh voices
  • Networking
  • Prayer and camaraderie

Details and registration information will be posted on nrvc.net and e-mailed to members this month.
