We have lined up a series of workshops to equip new and not-so new leaders for the nuts and bolts of ministry work in the local church. In each workshop you will learn what’s new in each area in the 2016 Book of Discipline, best practices in each ministry setting and lessons for leading in the local church.
The day will start off with a keynote by Rev. Rosario Picardo, author of “Funding Ministry with Five Loaves and Two Fishes”.
Great food, fellowship and worship are always included!!

Hospitality Training – Jason Moore
Without really meaning to be, most churches are blind to the visitor experience. From unspoken rituals, to maze-like facilities, worship can be very intimidating for guests. Jason Moore, consultant and frequent “secret worshiper”, will guide you through the top 5 questions on the minds of visitors, and how to more effectively invite them into an experience worth returning to. Radically hospitality is within the reach of any and every church.
Effective administration – Terri McClain
As the face & voice of your local church, learn how you can be more effective in performing the day to day operations of running Christ’s church.
Building Bridges Beyond the Bars – Rev. Amelia Boomershine/Rev. Sherry Gale
This workshop is for pastors, mission teams, congregation members, and individuals walking with those experiencing incarceration and the ripple effects of reentry. This workshop provides practical guidance on building and sustaining Christ-centered relationships as we walk with our friends, neighbors, and loved ones in our community. It also connects participants with local resources that build bridges of community collaboration with other organizations that support people inside and outside of the criminal justice system.
5 loaves 2 fishes – Rev. Rosario Picardo
Clergy are trained to preach, teach, and lead a congregation in spiritual matters. However, there is very little training for clergy when it comes to the “business” matters of the church-finances, debt reduction, fundraising, and building maintenance. The added and sometimes unexpected load for clergy can become cumbersome and extremely stressful. In addition, the decline of the church and the passing of key funders of churches leave many pastors with dying churches and few resources to do anything about it. Picardo has been in this very position. As a pastor, Picardo launched a church in a movie theater with no people and very little financial support. He also revitalized a dying congregation in a deteriorating physical structure. Through trials and failures, innovation and entrepreneurial thinking, God provided, and Picardo learned new ways for reaching the least and lost, and for growing disciples. In Funding Ministry with Five Loaves and Two Fish, Picardo shares the lessons he’s learned with confidence that other leaders can do the same. He demonstrates how, step by faithful step.
