This Regional Gathering has been planned to work in conjunction with Festival of Sharing.
The clergy day (Friday) will start with a training session from 1 to 4. Ministers have their choice of two different topics for this session. The first is a Boundary Training (Ministerial Ethics) designed as a second level for those who have had boundary training before. The cost of this session is $30. Registration is due by 8am on October 16th. The other is an Introduction to MissionInsite: Knowing Your Church's Mission Field and Growth Potential. This session is an overview of the demographics program that the Region has made available to all congregations. The cost of this session is $10.
At 4:00 we'll convene for "We are the Mid-America Region...The Good, The Bad, and The Holy." Participants will learn more about what's happening in our Region and meet the two new "settled" Regional Minister Team members.
The day qualifies as five hours of continuing education towards the annual 15 hour requirement.
