We’ve all heard the alarming statistics about the church’s demise in American culture. Even though the population is growing, the church seems to be dying. While many of the reasons are complex, one of them is very simple. We have moved away from the Master’s plan, Jesus gives us a very clear model for the church and discipleship through his life and ministry. Join Shenango Presbytery as it explores what it means to be disciples charged with the task of making disciples.
Washington Presbytery will hold Leaderfest 2018 on Saturday, Feb. 3, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at The Church of the Covenant in Washington, PA. The keynoter will be Rev. Dr. Larry Selig, who will share how to discover potential lay volunteers who are presently “spectators” but can become “players” in effective and fulfilling ministries in and through the local church as they discover their motivational spiritual gifting.
There are nine workshops to choose from. This is for all church folks who want to get energized for ministry in their congregation in 2018. More information is available on this flyer here.
