Training Tuesdays

Training Tuesdays is an online training experience to inspire and equip local church leaders to connect more people with Jesus. Using Zoom, leaders connect from 7 to 8:30 p.m. to learn from an expert about a topic that helps 100% of our congregations to become 100% vital.

The calls are videotaped and can be accessed later -- along with handouts -- in a searchable resource area or as a YouTube Playlist.

We live in challenging times. The pandemic, economic uncertainty, political division and pending denominational split have raised anxiety in the church and in the world. Now more than ever, we need people who can lead as a non-anxious presence. Jack Shitama, Director of the Center for Vital Leadership, will share principles from his book, Anxious Church, Anxious People: How to Lead Change in an Age of Anxiety to help you grow as a non-anxious leader.

Training Tuesdays - Statistical Report Training: AC Stats

It’s that time of the year again, Statistical Report Season. This year we will move away from the Ezra statistical reporting system, so plan to join us as we become familiar with AC Stats, our new system. We strongly encourage everyone who will work on the stats to attend this training. During our time together we will walk through AC Stats, show you the features and answer your questions.
