  • Overview

    What kind of leaders are we? What are we focused on? How are we behaving? What are our innermost motivations? Our mini church leaders conference will focus on these things through the lens of 1 Thess 2:1-12, where Paul explains the kind of leadership which the Thessalonians experienced.

    What a blessing it is when leaders are humble and truthful at the same time. This is sometimes a challenge with us who are leaders because of remaining sin. But we are not left without a roadmap. God has provided many places in His Word to guide us. How church leaders function with those God has put them with is always a growing process. As we grow in the Lord and experience different situations, God grows us up to love the brethren better and better. In Paul’s letter to the Thessalonian church he speaks of how he and the other apostles ministered to the Christians in their town. He gives us an inspiring vision of leadership. This is the subject of our “Church Leaders Gathering.”

    Who is invited? This gathering is for  those who are either in some form of formal church leadership or aspiring to such a role in the local church.
