Leadership Conference 2018
The Leadership Conference will begin at 14:00 on Thursday 21 June, with registration from 13:00. We will continue from 09:00-21:30 on Friday 22 June and 09:00-13:00 on Saturday 23 June.
(FULL) Raising Leaders, Planting Churches – Phil Moore
Jesus tells us that the fields are ripe for harvest - the problem is that the labourers are too few. He tells us to begin by praying for more leaders to emerge from our churches to help us harvest our own fields and to move to new fields. But what do we do after we prayed? This track will give you eight simple steps from the way that Jesus raised his twelve disciples that will help you to raise more leaders and plant more churches.
Messy Discipleship - Jim Partridge
How do we help produce mature believers? Increasingly we are seeing people come to Christ with no Christian context, knowledge or history. How do we help move people from baby milk to solid food? How do we disciple people when their personal circumstances are complex due to their life before they met Christ? How do we get a greater understanding of mental health and the impact that can have on discipleship? Are our discipleship structures set up for the middle classes or are they accessible to all? What was Jesus model of discipleship?
(FULL) Charismatic Worship - Dave Holden, Chris Smyth & Friends
This is a track for Elders & key leaders, worship leaders & musicians.
We will be looking at the purpose of corporate worship & how that relates to both believers & unbelievers in our meetings. The relationship between worship leaders & those ‘anchoring’ meetings. How worship leaders & musicians function together, lead people closer to God & choose the right songs! If you would like to see real progress in your local church worship & are needing to see some changes then this track is for you.
Impacting Communities - Paul Mann
Many of our churches are involved in impacting our communities more than ever before – we’re caring for the vulnerable, building relationships with decision-makers, partnering with other organisations for the common good, praying for the issues affecting our towns and cities. But how do we play a central role in our communities while keeping Jesus at the centre of all we do? How do we ensure this doesn’t become a distraction from the overall vision of the church? What happens when we’re influencing people around us but they don’t want us to mention Jesus? This track will equip church leaders, project leaders and activists to build for the long-term, so that we have a sustainable impact on our communities over the coming years and beyond – doing them immense good while continuing to vibrantly proclaim the gospel.
Healthy Leaders, Healthy Churches - Simon Elliott
We are all keen for our area of church to grow in number and Kingdom influence. Whether it is our small group, youth group, mercy ministry or workplace mission. The reality is that healthy leaders facilitate sustainable growth, but growth does not always mean we are leading in a healthy and sustainable way. This track will help you simplify your leadership life so that God has more room to move and you have more room to breathe. We will look at our identity in God, our emotional intelligence and how these factors release fun and fruitfulness into our area of ministry at church and in the workplace.
