Celebrating Small Church Leadership and Vitality

April 17, 2017

Small churches play a vital role in the mission and ministry of the South Georgia Annual Conference. At the 2017 Annual Conference session, the South Georgia Annual Conference, Conference Board of Laity, and Connectional Ministries have partnered to provide a luncheon promoting ministry resources for small churches.

Clergy and Laity are encouraged and invited to attend “Celebrating Small Church Leadership and Vitality,” the Small Church Leadership Luncheon at the 2017 South Georgia Conference Annual Conference. The luncheon is scheduled for Monday, June 5, at 12:30 p.m. at the Jekyll Island Convention Center. The cost is $10 per person, payable online or at the door. The registration deadline is May 15.

This time of lunch and learn is intended for clergy and laity. There will be two sessions offered simultaneously. The first session is for churches with an average worship attendance of less than 50 people. The second session is for churches with an average worship attendance between 50 and 100 people. Both sessions will share vital information for celebrating and strengthening small congregations. Guest presenters include Rev. Carrie Myers, pastor of Ashburn/Sycamore Circuit; Dr. Nita Crump, superintendent of the Southwest District; and leaders from Discipleship Ministries and Next Step Ministries.
