Join us as we discuss Growth Track and developing the engagement pathway to lead others toward active involvement in the life of the church.

Healthy (Special Needs) Ministry Transitions During COVID-19 and After

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about significant disruptions in the way churches function, but it has also presented an opportunity for positive change in the way we approach special needs ministry. During and after this period of uncertainty, it is important for churches to focus on building resilience and adapting to the needs of their congregations while maintaining a strong sense of community.


How to Plan for the Unexpected

If we've learned anything over the last several years, it's that we have no idea what the next several years have in store! We can't control what's going to happen, but there are things we can do as church leaders today to make sure the church thrives in the future.

Communicating to a Post-Christian Mindset

For centuries the western church has been able to assume certain common beliefs in the people we are trying to reach because we lived in what scholars called a kind of Christendom. This means evangelism was often simply helping people connect those common beliefs to Jesus, like connecting "dots" that were already there. But more and more the people we are trying to reach don't come with those "dots" and the church is struggling to know where to start. This breakout will focus on how to stay in touch with the cultural moment and communicate the Gospel to those who no longer believe Christianity has anything to offer.

Outreach & care

Enabling vs Empowering

Enabling an individual vs. empowering an individual seems like a tightrope act that is hard to navigate. As leaders, we should always strive to empower others to develop, grow and strive.

Creating Resources for the Hurting in Your Church and Community

Emphasis will be on tips, "tricks of the trade" and best practices in both urban (i.e. Savannah) and rural (our Effingham, Midway) areas. 

Global outreach is more than saying “Yes”, it’s being willing to say “No”

Whether you are sending short term teams around the world or trying to choose which global ministries to support, saying “no” may be the most important choice you can make.

Creating a Culture of Belonging, Pastoring through the LGBTQ+ Movement, Pastoring a Post-Christian Generation

Students are longing for more than we know and they themselves know... community. Relationship. Belonging. How do we do that? Let's answer what feels like unanswerable questions. When we have an LGBTQ+ student, how do we pastor them? Do we do it any differently? What do we do about bathrooms, small groups, camp, pronouns? How do we prepare the leaders and volunteers in our ministry? We will all come from different angles in this breakout, let's approach this with humility, openness, and more importantly, love like Jesus would. Note: this is not a political agenda breakout. Please set all biasness, political preferences, etc. aside.

Define The Win

What are you looking for in the future?  We are putting everything on the table and invite you to join us for an in-depth discussion about Cam’s transition.


Impact of Transitions in Your Staff and Culture

“Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.” - John Maxwell
