Using Sunday School to Reach
Monday, September 15, 2014
What are they looking for in a church and/or Sunday School? Are there certain elements that are vital in reaching and keeping college students? These are a few of the questions that will be dealt with in this conference. College students will not come just because a class is offered. We must intentionally reach out to them.
Preregister here, or by contacting the MBA office no later than Thursday, September 11.
Church Legal Issues
Date: Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Churches are exposed to the risk of being sued. Various requirements are imposed on us by the state and federal governments, and churches sometimes fail to comply. Churches have been hit with judgments, some of which have been multi-million dollar judgments. They have been subjected to government intrusion into their internal dealings. The main reason this happens is church leaders were operating with no knowledge of the legal requirements. The conference deals directly with what can be done to protect yourselves.
State missionary Jim Swedenburg will lead this conference.
Although not required to attend, please pre-register here, or by contacting the MBA office no later than Thursday, September 11.
