Fort Worden | April 27-May 1
God meets us where we are and calls us to grow out of our comfort zones, using our life together in prayer and worship, study and learning, action, and life in community as the source of our transformation.
The Diocese of Olympia’s Office of the Bishop is pleased to bring back “The Bishop’s Leadership Conference: Size to Size, Strength to Strength” – a conference that explores what it means to be faithful, healthy, and effective in your church’s current, local context and help you discern if God is calling your congregation to grow in new ways.
Over the course of the week, each church will attend two days of the conference. The first day, connect and network with other churches of similar size to share and discover strengths specific to your congregational size. On the second day, learn more about how growth would look by joining the next congregational size up. Using Sources of Transformation as the foundation for our work, we’ll explore how stewardship, marketing and evangelism, discipleship, communications, faith formation, finances, and property and building maintenance operate at all congregational sizes.
