Breakthrough | Rev. Juel Nelson
Recommended for Pastors, lay servants, worship leaders, worship committees, small group leaders.
Breakthrough is a resource designed to provide easy to use best practices and worship series so that GNJ congregations can re-tune their worship, spend less time preparing the details and focus on what really matters – preaching the gospel to make disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world. Come learn about this new GNJ resource launching this spring!
Staff Parish Relations Committees | Rev. Shawn Callender Hogan
For those new to this task and for those seeking a refresher on the SPRC’s vital role in the health and well-being of the church community!
Board of Trustees | Rev. Vivian Rodeffer
The session will introduce you to or review if you have already served as trustee previously, the areas of responsibility of trustees for church properties, grounds, and investments. Will cover all disciplinary paragraphs and the “Trustee Job Description” by the denomination’s Board of Discipleship. Bring your questions and concerns, and we will look for guidance in The Book of Discipline together. If you have The Discipline 2016, bring it along.

Recommended for church treasurers, financial secretaries, bookkeepers, pastors, collection counters, and members of the Finance Committee or the Board of Trustees. This workshop will discuss the ABC’s of overall church financial management.
