Workshop Session 1: Why and How to Develop Leaders Starting Now
The era of hiring pre-packaged leaders is over. You may occasionally hire a leader from the outside, but there are simply not enough leaders out there for you to not develop your own. Few pastors have any intentional plan for developing new leaders. There is, however, no better use of your time as a pastor than to develop leaders. Why should I develop leaders? How do I get started? How can I become a leader-developing machine? Learn how in this workshop.
Time: Tuesday, 2:30 – 3:30pm
Location: Faith Hall - Room 301E

Workshop Session 2: How to Build a Strategic Plan for Your Church
Many churches are little more than social clubs. As a result, they are completely ineffective in reaching their communities. No new church starts with the goal of being irrelevant, but over time, churches often lose track of their very reason for existence. But this irrelevance and ineffectiveness can be reversed when a church invests the time and energy to answer a few key questions, and then creates a vision plan to act on the answers. Building a plan for exactly where your church is headed can launch your church into greater effectiveness.
Time: Wednesday, 8:45 – 9:45am
