The same workshop will be repeated in three MidMaine locations
April 28, 5:30-8:30 PM hosted by Brunswick UMC
April 29, 9:00AM-1:00 PM hosted by Belfast UMC
April 30, 1:00-4:00 PM hosted by Auburn UMC
Description: Through facilitated dialogue and guided leadership development exercises, Dr. Caldwell will assist participants in celebrating core values and
strengths, already giving life to their faith communities, and then guide a process for imagining new ways of reconfiguring assets for dynamic ministries with high impact potential in their own backyards.
These workshops are for LAITY and CLERGY, and are most effective when clergy attend with lay members of their churches. I highly encourage folks to come as a team from their church. They will be able to do the best work together, rather than one representative trying to take back the information or the exercises.
As they go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah Psalm 84:6-8 (NRSV)
