What might your church look like if its members became vital, fully empowered partners in ministry? How can you help them discover and release their full potential? How would their roles change--and yours?

This seminar will explore how to create an environment and mindset in your church that turns ministry into a team effort where:
  • pastors and leaders enable church members to share in ministry
  • people's gifts, talents, and life callings are matched with areas of service
  • ministry opportunities are recognized and developed
  • the culture encourages the growth of a broad array of ministries
  • a well-designed system addresses needs of every kind, both individual and corporate
  • the pastor doesn't have to be all things to all people

Utilizing insights and principles developed by Leadership Training Network, this practical session will help you make the shift to a church culture that fosters equipping and team development.

Who should attend this seminar:

  • Senior pastors
  • Associate pastors
  • Lay leaders
  • Ministry leaders
  • Elders
