NAVIGATE - LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER
Does your church struggle to help people take their next steps in faith?
Are you finding it a challenge to weave invitation to discipleship into each worship experience?
Does your congregation lack an intentional pathway to discipleship?
Navigate is a one-day event designed to help church leaders grow in discipleship development. This jam-packed day of learning will include two general sessions unpacking why and how to create and implement a worship experience that invites next steps in your congregation's faith walk. You will not want to miss this year's conference keynote speakers Mike Schreiner and Ken Willard, authors of "Stride: Creating a Discipleship Pathway for your Church." Rev. Schreiner will also lead us in worship demonstrating how to weave invitation to faith development into the worship experience.
Registration closes Friday, April 20, at midnight.
