RISE Pastor’s Conference is going VIRTUAL

This event will still take place on March 16-18, and will still feature incredible worship and dynamic speakers. Sessions will be released at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm on the dates of the conference. We hope to have you and your team join us!

Join us for a time to refresh your relationship with God, grow in your gifting, and realign your ministry

R – RECONNECT WITH GOD

Get away and invest time in your personal walk with the Lord. Your ministry to others will only be as healthy as your own relationship with God. Take time to be refreshed.

I – IMAGINE WHAT GOD CAN DO AGAIN

Burnout can dull the vision that God gave you when He first called you to serve in ministry. Take a step back and see your ministry again with eyes of expectant faith.

S – STRIVE FOR MORE IN YOUR MINISTRY/FAMILY

Don’t settle for a comfortable ministry if the Lord is opening new doors. Take opportunities to grow in your gifting, your leadership, and your service.

E – ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER

Spend time with other church leaders who are facing the same joys and challenges of serving in ministry. Share what God is doing in your lives and churches and be encouraged.
