Do you long to change your church from an inward to an outward focus? From an institutional approach to a missional one? There’s no magic wand for this change, but there are practical steps for pastors and lay leaders that can move your congregation from consumers to conveyors of faith.
Mark your calendar for the ReVision Conference at Springfield First United Methodist Church on Thursday, October 20th, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM and Friday, October 21st, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Register by October 3rd to receive the Early Bird rate of $40 for both days and lunch on Friday. Registration after October 3rd is $50.
Looking for Continue Education Credit? If you come Thursday and Friday there 7 hours of lecture time. Attend Just Friday and receive 5.5 Hours of lecture time. 10 hours of lecture equals 1 CEU for IGRC. We will have a certificate you can pick-up after the closing session.
Jim Ozier, author of Clip In: Risking Hospitality in Your Church, will be the keynote speaker both days. Jim will share practical approaches to creating a culture of hospitality that immediately connects with first-time guests.
Roger Ross will lead break-out sessions based on his book, Meet the Goodpeople, that helps church leaders create a process to lead non-churched people into a transforming relationship with Jesus and his Church.
Other break-out sessions will focus on what a mindset change could look like in each ministry area of your church: Children’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Music, Technical Arts, Hospitality, Small Groups, and Missions.
The conference will be full of inspiration, information, practical next steps, and great networking. Together we can learn to reach a new audience, increase guest retention, and turn the tide.
