Choosing Abundance – A Virtual Workshop
with Tom Berlin
October 13 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Bring Your Team! We believe this workshop will have the greatest impact when pastors and laity attend together. That’s why we are offering a special 50% discount for any groups of 3 or more.
At times we find ourselves wandering in what feels like barren lands. Our inclination may be to default to a mindset of scarcity and choose to retreat and disengage. Yet as followers of Christ, we should follow in faith and respond in ways that express who we are as Christians. During this extended period of wilderness and uncertainty, how can we develop new patterns that are both life-giving and affirming for our congregations?
Tom Berlin will invite us to pause and reconsider:
- The essential nature of self-care as part of a church leadership strategy.
- Why we should be seeking new ways of ministry in this time of opportunity.
- Finding a model of abundance instead of scarcity by encouraging churches to think of their financial future with openness instead of with limitations.
Let’s listen to Christ’s call and envision a future of possibility, choosing abundance.
