7 Building Blocks of a 21st-Century Church
Thurs., Apr. 5 at 2 p.m. ET
Speakers: David Middlebrook, John Matthew Anthony and & Robert Rucker, attorneys for the Church Law Group
Event Description: The Church is under ever-increasing scrutiny, from its own congregation, from the media, from the government, along with other persons claiming to have been harmed by it. The news headlines are full of religious organizations — thought immune from lawsuit — rocked by damage claims and huge, and sometimes fatal, monetary judgments. The perils are real.
This seminar can help your church prepare for these unknown dangers.
Introducing a Culture of Accountability for Staff: The Fine Line Between 'Calling' and 'Employment'
Thurs., Apr. 12 at 11 a.m. ET
Speakers: Staff Management Columnist Ken Godevenos & the Rev. Rick Hayden of Parkway Bible Church
Event Description: In its simplest form, accountability means "the willingness to stand up and be counted." But how do we get our staff (and possibly our congregants) to do just that?
This seminar will examine:
• Its importance for the local church
• How to build it into your culture
• The communications involved
• How to deal with excuses, justifications, apologies and other forms of unacceptable account-giving behavioral responses
The Distributing Church: A Perspective on Total Life Stewardship
Thurs., Apr. 19 at 4 p.m. ET
Speakers: Dr. David McKinley, popular author and teaching pastor & Mike Buster, executive pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church
Event Description: Prestonwood Baptist Church Pastors will address and expand on the subject matter and various themes presented in McKinley’s newest book, "The Life You Were Born to Give." Discussions will challenge the listener to shift their focus away from getting all they can out of life (existing) to giving their lives away for the benefit of others (distributing).
