Leading a Multigenerational Church : Pastor Jackson Garrell (First Baptist Church)

Thriving as a multigenerational church is challenging. Jackson worked on the pastoral staff in a church spanning over five different generations, working on practical plans to help bring unity to these groups. In this workshop, Jackson uses biblical truths to suggest a practical approach to bridging the generation gap in your church.

Discipleship : Pastor Justin Bleuer (Berean Bible Church)

What does Pepsi make? What does Ford make? All of us can answer those questions quickly. But what does the church make? Everyone in our church should be able to answer this question quickly and accurately. Why? Because the church has one simple mission – make disciples. Come learn how to make this mission your mission. We will investigate a simple yet effective disciple-making process that’s rooted in one on one mentoring and used by growing churches across our region.

Women’s Workshop : Amy Rathmell (Faith Bible Church)

Life is messy. Things happen that we do not expect. We have been called to manage the house, raise children, plus have a thriving ministry in our churches, but what do we do when something goes horribly wrong? This workshop will focus on how to handle your ministry & life when it seems that everything else is crumbling, and how God can use you in your uncomfortableness to become a thriving women.

Children’s Workshop: Dave Coy (Camp BaYouCa)

Children’s ministry can be the toughest, hardest, and one of the most important and rewarding ministries in your church. How though can we do children’s ministry effectively? This workshop will focus on why kids are so crucial, and what are some attributes of a thriving children’s ministry.

Leadership : Kevin Cooper (Berean Bible Church)
