2016 EVENTS AND CALENDARS

BEING ABOUT OUR FATHERS BUSINESS
THINK MINISTRY, THINK BUSINESS AND THINK STRONG
Our mission is to get the Church of Christ to think and operate ministry as GOD’S Business. In a competitive world with increasing regulations and compliance, including dwindling resources, and the risk of survival by churches, a whole new way of thinking, strategies, response and responsibility need to be within pastors grip. GOD’S plan for His church is that, it be vibrant, anointed, powerful, resourceful and competitive. We give pastors the ministry edge.

Saturday February 6, 2016, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

The Church in the Strategic Planning

As ministry evolves and grows, so also are its challenges. This calls for sets of new plans and new strategies. You cannot be doing the same thing and expect a different result. The need to have a clear vision, purpose and mission cannot be overemphasized. This is a step by step approach in setting achievable goals, objectives and strategies. Have at the tip at your finger, a simplified wisdom for short, medium and long range plan.

Saturday March 27, 2016, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Structure & Governance

Organizing your members into units of ministry force is critical to winning the battle against the Amalekites. Learn how to organize ministry volunteers; learn how to set up personnel policies and procedures; staff and contractors employment compensation package; know how to organize your board of directors, empower and get them to work for you.

Saturday April 24, 2016, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Succession Plan

By reason of man’s life span, we are not endowed to continue forever. There is need for leaders to raise leaders to continue the good work. Therefore the need for spiritual sensing, prayer and planning is critical. Without a trusted successor, your ministry investment, efforts and sacrifice will be lost.

Saturday May 22, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Clergy Compensation Package

How to balance what comes in weekly as church income versus what the pastors and ministers gets as compensation, without getting into trouble with the IRS, has been a critical part of church and ministry governance.

Saturday June 7, 2016, 10:00 Am – 12:30 PM

CLERGY ECONOMIC SUMMIT


Access to Resources: Federal, State, City, private. Avoiding Foreclosures & Becoming a Victim of Predatory Lending: Keeping God’s Houses of Worship Open

There is nothing but the strategy of the enemy to close the doors of God’s houses of worship. The Lord said “upon this rock, I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” But we need to have a plan and a strategy. The blue print is a united, knowledgeable and strong church. This summit will bring the best of fedral, state, city and foreclosure prevention experts and pastors facing the threat or are in foreclosure can be better positioned to avoid or come out of the situation with adverse consequences.

Saturday July 24, 2016 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Fund Diversification

Tithe and offering will continue as God’s given financial plan for His church. But with the weekly plate dwindling, churches and ministries must be creative and innovative in seeking alternative means to achieving financial independence. Learn about investment strategies, project financing, and how to increase the plate income. How can pastors benefit from planned giving, annuities, and stocks? Learn from experienced and investment strategist, and put your church on a sound financial future.

Saturday August 28, 2016 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Clergy, Taxes & Records

Many pastors, Churches and missions have become victims of tax evasion and other charges by IRS. Banks don’t trust pastors and churches because according to them “pastors are not business conscious, don’t keep and have financial records, and don’t know how to manage money. With changes in the nation’s taxes, how churches will be impacted or affected should be something on your mind. Being organized with a record keeping system should be one of our goals in 2016.

Saturday September 25, 2016, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Membership Development, System Design Software and Impact Strategies

Membership growth must be our drive– “seeking to save that which was lost”. But reaching, attracting and building our membership and keeping them have been a major challenge for the past decade. The mega ministries keep attracting members while the small ones are struggling to maintain the ones they have. This seminar is to broaden the horizon of leaders on church membership retention and give pastors and membership directors the tools necessary to reach, maintain and enhance attendance and church growth.
