This is a crazy time of year. For you as a church leader, the holiday frenzy is dialed up a notch. Not only are you preparing for Christmas events and services - the decorations, the rehearsals, the extra activities, the outreach events - but you are also looking ahead to the new year.
How can your church continue to support your mission and point to the vision you have for your community? What things will stay the same? What can you change to reach more people, grow your community, and build better relationships?
As you put a bow on 2019, you are also unwrapping possibilities for 2020 and beyond.
The Christmas season is a time of much celebration, festivities, and even time with your family and friends. But, for church leaders, it can also feel, well, a bit overwhelming. Perhaps you are feeling overworked or your church is facing budget issues. Maybe there’s been a decline in attendance or you are just feeling disconnected from your community.
We get it.
We know the hurdles churches face throughout the year, which is why we created the ENGAGE Conference - a FREE tech conference to help your members and guests feel known, noticed and loved. Consider this our Christmas gift to you!
Here’s exactly what you’ll get when you sign up for ENGAGE Conference 2020. First, and foremost, you’ll receive the latest insight from 35+ experts in leadership development, websites and branding, social media strategy, guest experience and follow-up, and big-picture ideas.
We are kicking off this FREE 8-day conference on February 4th, 2020 with some fun and laughs with comedian, actor, and author, Michael Jr. His television appearances include The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Comedy Central, among others. He is hilarious and dedicated to creating comedy that inspires. What a great way to kick-off the conference!
