Spiritual Church Conference .png


Navigating the call as a Pastor to God’s people is unique. The demands of organizational leadership, staff development, expectation management, finances, and relational turmoil are just a few of the parts of the pastor’s portfolio that may seem overwhelming. These things are hardly unnecessary; pastors and Church leaders are called to oversee the life of the church in all its forms. Still, we must be reminded of why we are in the ministry in the first place: To nourish and guide the spiritual lives of the people God has entrusted to our care. 

On November 11th, we will be hosting our first “Spiritual Church Conference”. The purpose of this conference is to dedicate time to focus on some of the essentials of pastoral ministry. It is our hope that this conference will be an encouragement to you as you endeavor to be faithful to your pastoral calling.  We want to invite you, your staff, and anyone else at your church that you think would benefit from this day to be a part of this conference with us and would be honored if you would attend.
