Jerrie Shepard Matney: Let’s Retreat!
Thinking of having a retreat, but don't know where to start? Or where to go from there? In this workshop we will discuss and plan the steps for a church retreat, and the reasons for having one. Questions to consider: Who is it for? What will be accomplished? How long will it be? What is the perfect place - for you? Bring your own questions and concerns as well - we'll learn and have fun along the way!
Mike Wu: Recording and Financing Our Ministry
It's more than writing checks: the responsibilities and obligations of Church Treasurers, tips on staying on the correct side of the law, and how technology can help.
