I’m back at The Cove this week leading conferences for the Billy Graham School of Evangelism. Yesterday we covered “Keys to Thriving in the Smaller Church.” About 150 pastors, spouses, and church leaders attended the back-t0-back sessions and offered great stories from their own small churches.
Today I’m leading a second session on “Using Social Media in Outreach” at 11:45 am. The first one went well yesterday, and all the techie stuff worked, unlike last May when we had “technical difficulties beyond our control.”
This afternoon, I’ll wrap-up with two more back-to-back sessions on “Outreach Ideas to Help Your Church Change Your Community.” I’ll tell the story of what our church has been doing, plus the stories of other smaller congregations that are doing some amazing things in ministry. Later this week I’ll post the powerpoints to both the church seminars.
The Cove nestles into the unspoiled vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC. The Billy Graham School of Evangelism offers pastors and church leaders inspiration, information, and lots of free resources. If you haven’t been, check out the Schools for next year. You’ll be glad you came!
