East Taieri Church, Mosgiel will host the South Island Ministry Conference 15 and 16 May 2018.
The conference focus is on, “A place of real people sharing their story, both the joy & the pain. Experienced people in ministry sharing from their journey. Great opportunities for kicking around crunch issues and sharing good ideas. Heaps of fun and encouragement. Worshipping together & encouraging one another in prayer & fellowship”.
There will be a wide range of workshops that are small enough for in-depth discussion; team building—bring others from your church; and a celebration dinner.
The conference is not just for ministers and pastors—invite your teams.
This year’s speakers are Chris Clarke (former CEO of World Vision NZ) and his wife Karen Spoelstra (Anglican Youth Ministries). Together, Chris and Karen have a wealth of leadership experience. They are going to explore a number of aspects of leadership in the Joseph story including: Vision and how we cope when the dream is contested; The Prison years - when nothing seems to be happening; Transformation in Leadership; Managing in a Crisis; Forgiveness in leadership - when we have been let down.
This year the conference is two days so people are able to attend the LeadershipWorx one day pastors conference with Carey Nieuwhof in Dunedin on Thursday 17 May at Mornington Presbyterian Church, Dunedin (see http://www.leadershipworx.org.nz/events/).
