Communicate, Comunicate, Comunicate!
Communication is not just talking or writing something. In our day messages have to be short, precise and frequently repeated to be heard. Tweat, blog, Facebook, Messaging, Text, etc.
Presented ONLY at Retreats

Training Key Leaders
Leaders are Readers. Lead, follow or get out of the way. You are called to lead. That means you say, "Follow me!" Do you really want people to follow in your spiritual footsteps?
Presented ONLY at Retreats

Teaching Your Disciples
There is much talk about being committed to discipling but few pastors are really setting the pace for their people. Few pastors have a specific transferable discipleship plan to pass on to their disciples.
Presented ONLY at Retreats

Training Elders to Shepherd
In many churches eldership (or deaconship in Baptist Churches) is a position of honor and importance and has little to do with what God said elders/deacons are to be and do.

Creating Church Web Pages
Almost every church has a web site, but how you design it for usefulness will make the difference from being a billboard and being a resource tool to evangelize, teach, disciple and inform.

Planning Effective Worship
Worship today is as important as the sermon itself, indeed, it is part of the message being communicated any given Sunday. The style is not the issue. The content, attitude and where it leads the worshiper is all important.
