April 16 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
High energy, honest talk about what’s working and what isn’t in our churches.
Conference Leaders: Dr. Lisa Kimball, Associate Dean of Lifelong Learning & Professor of Christian Formation & Congregational Leadership, Virginia Theological Seminary, Alexandria, Virginia
Building on our diocesan theme, “Know Your Story! Live It Boldly” and drawing from her extensive knowledge of Christian formation practices across church, Dr. Lisa Kimball will equip diocesan leaders with confidence to strengthen Christian formation in their particular ministry settings. Dr. Kimball will use current research, popular culture, demographics, learning theory and sound theology to move beyond “decline rhetoric” into tangible, hopeful practices that address your real challenges as opportunities. If Sunday School isn’t working, what is? If your congregation is aging, what does thriving look like? Your neighborhood is changing, now what? Can online community really replace coffee hour? Plan to join us for an engaging substantive day of learning. Be on the lookout to tell Lisa what you most need in your ministry.
Cost: register March 17 on – $20. Lunch included.
