How many of you would like to welcome new people in your church? It is one of the highest stated goals of the churches in The Gateway Regional District every year.

Our upcoming Fall Charge Conference learning time will offer you, and as many people from your congregation as possible, video teaching segments and exercises to help us all get better at meeting and inviting new people.

In the video teaching segments you will hear from Bishop Farr, Roger Ross (Director of Congregational Excellence), and Rev. Tim Schulte, Licensed Local Pastor who has become a master at connecting with new people.

In this 90-minute workshop you will learn and practice new skills; and leave with a plan of action for your church.

Be sure to register the people coming from your church by Friday, October 18.  We want to be sure to have enough materials on had for each of you.

This workshop will be offered in 2 locations. We will be voting on your charge conference forms at the beginning of the event. 
  • Saturday, October 26 from 9:30am-11:30am at Centenary UMC in Bonne Terre
  • Sunday, October 27 from 2:30pm-4:30pm at Morning Star
