2015 Church Officers' Training Event
February 7, 2015 at Parchment Valley Conference Center
God is moving amongst His people. He desires for us to move beyond "survive to thrive." Paul told Timothy to "study to show yourself approved." With this thought in mind, the West Virginia Baptist Convention staff have planned the annual Church Officers' Training Event.
Several new classes are being offered this year as well as many old favorites. There is also opportunity for School of Christian Studies ADVANCED credit for those who desire it. Join us as we give you more tools to help take your church from "Survive to Thrive."
Workshops include: Associational Leadership, Children, Clerks, Deacons, Discipleship, Exploring a Call (New), Finance, Missions, Pastoral Relations Committee (New), Pulpit Committee, SCS ADVANCED - Transformational Leadership in Your Current Context (New), Senior Adults, Technology, Trustees, Worship and Music, Young Adults, Youth
The cost will be $15 per person for the day, including lunch. Plus, if you register eight from your church, two more can come for free. That is $120 for ten people from the same church.
Registration deadline is Monday, February 2, 2015.
For more information and a registration form, please click HERE.
School of Christian Studies ADVANCED credit will be available.
