Saturday Breakout Sessions
Saturday's conference will include four Breakout Sessions (two morning, two afternoon), during which participants can hear and learn from speakers and presenters who are serving and leading in areas of focus that are critical to Building Thriving Churches and Building Thriving Communities.
Building Thriving Churches
Breakout Sessions I and II: Larry Osborne will lead a 2-part discussion focused on the leadership concepts he presents in his books Sticky Church and Sticky Leaders during the morning Breakout Sessions in the Main Auditorium. While the second session will build on and continue the themes of the first, attendees hoping to "expand their toolbox" for church and ministry leadership will benefit from participating in either or both sessions.
Session I: "Why Some Teams Win and Most Don't"
Session II: "The Sticky Church Paradigm"
Breakout Session III: Sean Sears, Lead Pastor of Grace Church, will present "Neighboring: Reaching Your (Actual) Neighbors" during the first afternoon session. Location: Main Auditorium
Breakout Session IV: Steve Macchia, Founder and President of Leadership Transformations, Inc. will present the final Building Thriving Churches Breakout Session, which will focus on assessing and improving Church Health in areas such as evangelism, discipleship, leadership and stewardship. Location: Main Auditorium
