Vitality Principles and Practices Exposed

April 30, 2014

"Vitality Principles and Practices Exposed" will be a June 6 to 7 Leading Beyond the Walls workshop at Loomis First UMC. Leading Beyond the Walls explores effective leadership principles for developing congregations that are outward-centered, in a culture to which Christianity is foreign. Key topics include:
* Spiritual Leadership
* Clear Purpose and Vision  
* Accessible Outreach and Evangelism
* Excellent Worship and Preaching
* Care and Discipleship for the Congregation
* Strategic Planning
* The Unique Benefits of Methodism
Designed to detail hands-on practices and to build enthusiasm for the work of growing in vitality, churches are encouraged to send a team to attend the workshop. Please note that teams must include the pastor and at least two lay people. Those traveling a distance will need to make reservations at nearby motels.
Hosted by the Great Northern District and the Circuit On the Rise, this workshop will be led by staff from the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection outside Kansas City.
Leading Beyond the Walls is being held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The $40 per person registration fee includes Saturday lunch and snacks.
Breakfast will be provided on Saturday morning for a donation to Imagine No Malaria.
