It All Starts Here: The Role of the Nominations and Leadership Development Committee

This workshop will be led by Cheryl Edley-Worford, Director of Inclusivity and Lay Leadership Excellence

Location: Chestnut Memorial UMC (Newport News)

 

Lay leadership is the heart of local church ministry.  Yet far too often, people are merely picked and chosen to fill positions when we should be helping members identify their gifts, explore their calls, and be prepared for service.

This workshop will focus on building a year-round equipping ministry system - preparing, connecting, and equipping people for ministry.

How To Develop People In Ministry: The Nuts and bolts of making Disciples who make Disciples.

This workshop will be led by Paulo Lopes, Director of Ministires With Young People

Location: Chestnut Memorial UMC (Newport News)

 

Very few of us disagree that we must move "from members to disciples." But few of us can articulate what it looks like to actually make a disciple. Yet, making disciples is the most important thing every Christian should be doing! This workshop exists to give participants simple, yet effective tools they can immediately apply to their communities and every day relationships, so they too can become disciple-makers for the transformation of the world.
