Workshop Session 3: Helping the Churches You Start Thrive and Grow in Years 1-3
So many of us spend a very long time dreaming about and planning for our first few weeks or months existing as a church, but once the church is going, it often feels more difficult to plan for thriving and growing during the first few years of the church. This is such an important time for cementing your church's DNA and establishing an ethos and ethic of church multiplication. This workshop will help you with real-world anecdotes and practical tools for thriving and growing in years one through three.
Time: Wednesday, 2:30 – 3:30pm
Location: Faith Hall - Room 355
Speakers: Janie Mehaffey
