NASHVILLE, Tenn. (GBOD) – The General Board of Discipleship’s series of free online training sessions for local church leaders continues with a webinar about issues that face church council members.

The live event: Easter Living for Church Leaders: Prayer and Faith will be on Thursday, April 28 – church leaders care deeply about their faith community so that sometimes the “doing” church work overwhelms “being” the church. Several church leaders will tell about their own experiences to inspire Easter renewal in leaders. The webinars include basic information about the position from the Book of Discipline, plus Biblical framework for the ministry of the role. Webinar participants can chat and send questions in real time, and all the webinars have follow-up resources online for the leadership topic that is covered.

This training session provided by GBOD is made possible by support given to the World Service Fund through your church’s conference tithe.
