MULTIPLICATION IN MINISTRY WORKSHOP
Multiplication is the end game. It’s what Jesus had in mind when he released his disciples to fulfill the Great Commission. Churches get healthy, grow, and reproduce when they focus on multiplying disciples, leaders, and groups.
Clare Jewell, national church planting coordinator for Regular Baptist Churches, will lead a practical “Multiplication in Ministry” workshop on Wednesday, June 28, during the 2017 GARBC Conference. The workshop will provide tools to help leaders develop multiplication regardless of church size or style and will focus on utilizing measurements that move stagnant, inward focused churches outward into the communities God has called them to reach.
Join Clare and receive a FREE resource that will help you assess your church and take your first step toward becoming a multiplying church.
