“Stir It Up” Seminar     

Wednesday,  Sept. 22   9am-3pm                  

Leaders need to be continually revived in the their spirits and strengthened in their skills. This one-day seminar features interactive equipping and  encouraging sessions facilitated by ministry leaders:  Dallas Elder, Mary McDonald and Rusty Savage. It’s geared to “stir you up” for stronger and more confident Kingdom  ministry. There is “fresh bread” being prepared for you to be served in these sessions.  Come and get some!!!


     "Centering in Jesus"—Dallas Elder

We often need to disengage from the pushes, pulls and pressures of life and ministry to re-center on Jesus.  We will use some tangible touch points of faith to engage and experience God’s Presence.


     "Fan the Flame" —Mary McDonald

What do we do when we are at our end?  How do we ' keep on keeping on ' when all we want to do is sit down? Challenges are part of all true ministry but there is good news!



     "Thousand Weeks Club" —Rusty Savage

Leadership lessons from 30 years in the same place. It isn't just a sprint. It's not even a marathon. Long-tenured ministry is taking a group of people through a wilderness to a promised land. The priorities change. The scorecard changes. The responsibilities change.

Conference Workshops

Thursday-Saturday   Sept. 23-25


►Dallas Elder


“…Put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” (Eph. 3:10) This workshop explores the implications of God’s image in us. At worst, it’s buried under the debris of the Fall and our life choices. Still it       remains our created core and intended nature. It is the quest for our identity, the lens from which we can view our authentic self and genuinely affirm others. The supreme objective of Jesus was to redeem the image of God in humanity.



►Barry Clair


Often, the teachings of Jesus and the Bible      deviate from current accepted cultural norms. When messengers of the Gospel present a     faithful witness to it, immediately they are met with massive and public disapproval, outcry and calls for banishment. They are accused of      promoting hate and offensive ideologies. In this session, Pastors and Church leaders will learn to lead and preach in a culture that is condemning and un-redemptive. They will learn to avoid the missteps and ambushes of Cancel Culture. They will understand what should be the character of the messenger and the content of their message to a post-Christian culture.



►Darrell Jones


The three sessions of this workshop will address how the local church can engage and impact its community for Christ.

   1) A Biblical Model of Community Mission.

   2) How the Missional Church Engages the            Community.

   3) Exploring New Horizons of Ministry
