The Changing Face of Evangelism, Part 1
The Cornerstone Evangelism team
Evangelism looks different today than it did 30 years ago. How can we effectively engage people today with the gospel? This breakout session, led by a ground-breaking evangelism team from Cornerstone Presbyterian will be presented in two parts. This half-day leadership development session (taught in two breakout sessions) is comprised of interactive training, experiential learning, and self-discovery, focused on conversational and comprehensive evangelism.

Getting Started and Improving On Short-Term Missions
Dan Bair
Nothing gives us a missional heart like going on a short-term mission trip. But where do we start if we want our church to go? This break out session will give step by step instructions on how to put together or participate in a short-term mission trip. Led by Dan Bair who oversees missions at the Kirk of the Hills in Tulsa and formerly led short term mission teams for Christ for the City in Costa Rica will lead this workshop.

Building A Missional Vision For Your Church
George H and Gary Fuller
We know Jesus wants us to have a vision for the world outside the walls of the church. But how do we go about discerning this vision and creating it? This break out session is designed for church leaders to work through the creation of a missional vision in cooperation with the Holy Spirit.

The Changing Face of Evangelism, Part 2

Missionary Care
Mike Goolsby
Do you have missionaries that you support in your church? How can we support them in ways that go beyond financial support? What do missionaries really need? Mike Goolsby, former missionary to Afghanistan and mission pastor at Eastminster will tell us how.

Training Ministry Leaders and Lay Pastors for The Urban and Rural Church
TUMI team
Many times, churches from urban or rural areas, or ethnic churches cannot afford or recruit pastors that have been seminary trained. But the EPC allows for commissioned lay pastors-elders who receive seminary level training without the high expense, or relocation, or college required for a seminary education. This leadership training developed by The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) is available to the local church to train its leaders and Christian leaders in their area. Learn how you can establish a training site in your church.
