SESSIONS: Selected Messaged from Ministry Experts
By Sue Miller
Every single leader is looking for the next volunteer—we all struggle with how to get it done. Learn how you can take on this huge challenge and turn it into a win for both you and your future recruits.
By: Tom Shefchunas
Got too much to do? So do I. Welcome to ministry! In a world where just about anything can be included in your job description, how do you keep it manageable? Are there things we simply must do? Is it okay to say “no” to some requests? How do you know which is which? Join Tom Shefchunas, director of middle school for North Point Ministries, as we discuss strategies and principles to not only run the race well, but to finish it victoriously.
The Replacement Plan
By Terry Scalzitti
The term “finish strong” isn’t just for serious marathon runners. It’s a great phrase to keep in mind as you look ahead at your next move in ministry. Here’s the catch: finishing strong isn’t just about your own performance. It’s about having someone ready to take the reigns who is going to be even better at your job than you! Join us for this session where we’ll discuss how to apprentice young leaders and multiply our individual leadership skills.
CULTURE: Executive Summaries and Case Studies
Case Study: TOMS
Stories are powerful. Stories connect us in a way that can leave us inspired and searching for a way to make a difference in the world around us. And so does the story of TOMS.
Executive Summary: Start Something That Matters
By Blake Mycoskie
It matters. Blake Mycoskie saw the hopelessness of the kids in Argentina—the sickness, and ultimate death that was attributed to one simple thing, no shoes. We too are faced with opportunities every day to be part of something that matters. We interact with preschoolers, children, students, parents and volunteers, who need to know they matter. Blake Mycoskie is such a great reminder to us all to take a chance, to take the next step in a BIG idea. Lives are at stake, and God desires to use each of us to do “something that matters.”
Executive Summary: Deep and Wide
By Andy Stanley
Deep and Wide is a book that challenges us to rethink the way we are doing church. Are you a church that has lost its focus? Have you moved the lampstand to shine light on things that are not nearly as important as illuminating Christ? Are you a church for the churched? Or are you willing to be a church that unchurched people love to attend, a church that is committed to strategically reach those that are far from God?
PLUS: Random Stuff Leaders Want
Orange Sunday Event: Stock Family Syndrome
This event will allow you to introduce the families at your church to the Orange Strategy. It will allow them to see why it’s so important for the church and family to partner together. Because, after all . . .
God is at work telling a story of restoration and redemption through your family. Never buy into the myth that you need to become the “right” kind of parent before God can use you in your children’s lives. Instead, learn to cooperate with whatever God desires to do in your heart today so your children will have a front-row seat to the grace and goodness of God.
Included in this event:
- Talking Points to guide you through Reggie Joiner’s talk
- Video of Reggie Joiner: Stock Family Syndrome
- Bumper video: “What is Orange?”
- Keynote and PowerPoint presentations that complement the Stock Family Syndrome video
- Follow-up videos for Small Groups by Carey Nieuwhof – These videos are great to share with your families as they go through the book, Parenting Beyond Your Capacity.
