Equipping Pastors Leadership Events
Four Training Events Offered 2010

The Equipping Pastors Leadership Training Events detailed below are funded by a matching grant from the Board of Pensions and support from the eight western presbyteries. This year the events are created around four missional themes: Missional Leadership, Missional Preaching, Missional Stewardship and Missional Engagement. Each of these areas will be interpreted broadly to consider the full scope of what it means to be missional in an inward-focused world. These events are open to all pastors on a first come, first serve, basis.

1. MISSIONAL LEADERSHIP
hosted by David Oyler and Wayne Yost
♦ Help! I’ve barely attended a Session meeting and now I’m the Moderator!! Practical advice for new and experienced church leaders to bring a missional focus to your goals.
February 11, 2010 (12:00 noon) through February 12, 2010 (4:00 p.m.)

2. MISSIONAL PREACHING
hosted by Alan Adams and Joy Hoffman
♦ When Peter preached, the scripture says that 3,000 hearts turned to Christ! Of course, Peter was on a stump in the streets of Judea, not under the ‘bushel basket’ we’ve come to call the church. What have we missed? — re-inflating a reduced gospel.
April 22, 2010 (12:00 noon) through April 23, 2010 (4:00 p.m.)

3. MISSIONAL STEWARDSHIP
hosted by Vera White and Charlie Perrine
♦ God’s mission demands the commitment of those Called into the world in numerous and varied ways. Discover how God has equipped your community with everything it needs to succeed at God’s mission.
September 9, 2010 (12:00 noon) through September 10, 2010 (4:00 p.m.)

4. MISSIONAL ENGAGEMENT
hosted by David Dawson and Steven Benz
♦ How can a pastor nurture and care for God’s people in a way that is consistent with an
understanding of the church as a missional community? Learn what it means to be sent
by God to bring the gospel into the world.
November 19, 2010 (12:00 noon) through November 20, 2010 (4:00 p.m.)
