    The New Church Dynamics (also known as Growing New Churches) will be taught. Just as body that is healthy will grow, mature and reproduce, so does the church body. This seminar will explore the systems that make a church healthy and try to help the pastor and church leaders understand the systems of the church, diagnose them, and provide a plan for healing and growth. This track is excellent for existing churches to seeking to become stronger and make a greater impact.


    Dr. Mark Bane director of evangelism and Kevin McDonald Pastor at Gateway CON in California will be some of the trainers. 

     

    The Church Planting Essentials will also be presented in English and in Spanish. We encourage all Pastors that are new to our district to participate in this training and if you have already taken this training, invite your associates and youth workers as this training is designed to inspire them to do something new to build the Kingdom of God.   

     

    Both of these trainings are also great for team building, so bring some of your lay leaders. Pastors, this training fulfills a years worth of Lifelong Learning Hours that is required for Ordained ministers.
