Lausanne Young Leaders Gathering 

This is being held outside Jakarta, Indonesia, 3rd to 10th August, 2016.  Details from the Lausanne website; several from the UK are attending.

New Leaders in Larger Churches

Monday 17th October lunch-time to Wednesday 19th October lunch-time 2016 at the High Leigh Conference Centre, Lord Street, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, EN11 8SG.

This Conference will be extremely useful for any newly appointed leader (less than 2 years or so into the post) of a larger church, or any person about to become such. It is also open to any Associate, Assistant or Youth Minister, or other ordained leader who has newly joined a larger church team. “Larger” in this context is a church with a regular Sunday attendance in excess of 300 people, including children.

The Conference focuses on key issues relevant to anyone settling into such an area of responsibility (all led by those who are or have been leaders of larger churches), such as:

Managing Expectations
Appointing and Developing Staff and Senior Volunteers
Discerning vision and strategy
Maintaining time to read and pray
Planning Sundays well
The importance of larger churches
Preaching and Leadership

What participants have said about previous Conferences:

 “Ranks as one of the best and most useful conferences I’ve been on.”
    “A worthwhile and unique conference.”
    “A big thank you for a very helpful (golden) two days.”
    “Really appreciated the input, love and care.”
    “Very glad to have come.”
