Banff Pastor & Spouse's Conference
October 30 - November 2, 2014
This is an opportunity to sit with colleagues and spouses, who share a similar calling; and hear from a speaker who brings encouragement, wisdom and sinsight, as we journey on the road to which God has called us.
Guest Speaker: Greg Hochhalter,
Lessons From a Prophet: Resisting, Running, Restoration and Grace
ReNew events are held twice each year in five regions of Alberta: North, Edmonton, Central, Calgary and South. Church leaders are brought together so they might be challenged, encouraged and equipped to effectively serve and impact the communities in which they are located.
For the next ReNew, the topic of conversation will be:
What Every Church Needs to Know about Pastors.
During the evening, as we explain where this topic came from and why it is important, the intended goal will be to strengthen the relationships between pastors and churches, between pastors and church leaders. We believe that healthy, positive relationships in this regard will serve to increase the strength of the church and promote a work of the Kingdom.
Please keep in mind that, while future ReNew events will be for both pastors and lay leaders, this time we have asked the pastors not to attend. This is for you, church leaders.
Our hope is that every board member from every church, along with any other church leader you invite, will join us for this evening. As we share together we pray that our Lord will ReNew our commitment to healthy church ministry by way of healthy pastor-church relationships.
