What’s the benefit?2015-09-26T13:44:20-05:00

There is that often quoted saying, “Those who do not learn the lessons of history, they are prone to repeat its mistakes.” This event is for people who want to grow and learn. They want to network with other leaders. They want to know about cutting edge ministries and great historical practices.

This is a terrific place to find new ministry colleagues—people who are doing the same ministry function that you are. Most pastors do not have a sounding board, a colleague, or a friend in another church—this makes it hard to get objective advice! This seminar provides an environment where networking happens.
