You are a successful business executive who has scaled the upper echelons of your industry. However, when it comes to church work you are unsure just where you fit in. What does a woman who has answered the call look like? Who is she? What challenges does she face and how does she address them? What does it mean for her to walk in her God-given dominion and authority? This workshop will look closely at women who may be successful in the workplace, but are in some ambiguity about where they fit into church ministry.

Christian Education: Yes, We're Talking, But Are We Communicating?

3/9/2019 3:45 - 5:00 p.m. Room: WC 114

The workplace is the workplace; whether it's corporate America or in Christian ministry. Whether among Pastors and staff, CEOs and managers, Music Directors and musicians, or AV Staff and Worship Leaders, talking and communication are not always the same thing. If you serve on staff at your church in whatever capacity, good communication is vital to the successful completion of projects, meeting established deadlines, and building healthy relationships with co-workers. Efficiency and effectiveness in any workplace is important, and this is no less true in church-related work spaces.

Worship, Music & Drama: Church Growth Through Worship Ministry

3/9/2013

If our churches are to grow spiritually, we must view our ministry leadership in the context of the worship of God. He gave us the ability to lead for His glory and to edify the Body of Christ. We will be much more effective in ministry, and our churches will grow when we understand worship, and make it a priority not only in our lives, but as it relates to ministry leadership.
