Before You Quit
Sometimes we may become discouraged and be tempted to quit. This could be a marriage, a friendship, a ministry, or anything else that has been valuable in the past. This class will offer a few spiritual resources that may be helpful as you navigate these decisions

10:00 AM – 10:45 AM, Surfboard Room
Speaker: Jason Locke

Reimagining Church and Church Leadership for a New Era
In this one-hour class, Jason Locke will help participants imagine new ways of doing church in our changing world. While most churches clearly need traditional forms of gathering for worship, along with traditional forms of administration and pastoral leadership, how can churches actually make Christianity relevant to people who will never walk in the doors of a church building? How might we create new forms of Christian community and lead innovative teams to reach non-church-goers with the good news of Jesus? This session will look at concrete ideas for how to break out of existing frameworks.
