We are committed to empowering leaders in our Network. One of the avenues through which this happens is pastors gathering in group settings and learning from each other. Our goal is to equip pastors and church ministry leaders with great opportunities to develop and grow in a casual environment that they can take and apply in their ministry to strengthen the local church and see life-change take place. Each of our Development events reflect our belief that we are truly better together, so there is a great deal of emphasis placed on fellowship and networking with one another as well as providing opportunities to learn from and be informed by one another and leading voices in ministry.
Our ongoing Pastoral development initiative is our First Tuesday Pastors Lunch. Each month, Pastors gather on the first Tuesday for a meal and a time of fellowship. We have a rotation of locations and focuses at these lunches to address topics of Personal Development, Professional Instruction, and Care & Support. These are always highlight events on our Network calendar.
Support Staff and Ministry Leaders engage through our Coffee & Conversation Initiative. C&C gives those in ministry leadership an opportunity to network with other ministry leaders in the area as well as a time to share ideas and support for one another. Currently, there are C&C meetings for Student Ministry Leaders, College & Family Leaders, and Worship Ministry Leaders.
