As we move closer to Leadership Conference, I want to encourage all of our pastor and leaders who are planning to attend to begin to pray for the conference and how God will use our time together. It is important to remember our goals in coming together involve our working on a strategy for each of us to develop leaders in our churches. Our time together will not just be sitting and listening but participating in strategic thinking, discussions and planning. If you have not registered, it is not too late; we are still accepting registrations and really want you to join us. Register here.

Leadership Development is one of the critical areas of need in our denomination and the world at large, both in the church and in our communities. We need to develop strong Christian leaders that will serve in our churches as pastors, church planters and missionaries, but also leaders who will serve in our communities as godly examples to be the salt and light that God wants us to be. Our desire through our Ministry Training Institute is to take emerging leaders from our churches who feel the calling to serve in local ministries and continue their training to prepare them for service. It is vital for our current leaders to see the importance of identifying emerging leaders and cultivating them through discipling to become leaders who are guided by Christian principles and Scriptural truth. Each of us can look back in our lives and identify key individuals that God used to influence us and disciple us into mature believers. I am thankful for these patriarchs and matriarchs who God put in my life. My prayer is that God will use all of our pastors and church leaders to fill that role in others’ lives!
