I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity from the Lewis Center for Church Leadership.
“Discovering God’s Future for Your Church” Conference and Live Stream
Saturday, November 5, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
What next faithful step is God calling your church to take? It is vital to know God’s direction — or vision — for your congregation.
At Discovering God’s Future for your Church, you will learn how to discern this vision — a step-by-step process for considering the strengths, challenges, and people that God has given you both in your church and in your community. This process can reveal what God is calling your congregation to be and to do.
You will learn that whether God’s vision for your church is large or small, it has to be right for your congregation — right at this time, right in your context. And you will learn how to make this vision come alive in your church to be faithful and fruitful to God’s will.
Attendees may participate in person at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC, or via live stream from their own computer or mobile device across the globe. Discovering God’s Future for Your Church is ecumenical and designed for both laity and clergy.
