This session is designed to further equip those who conduct pastoral certification interviews within LCMC. We will discuss our certification requirements, interview process and its purpose, and key elements of the interview itself. We will train participants on the appropriate use of the our forms and procedures to help ensure consistency in the interview process throughout our growing association.

Small But Mighty Church

Sandy Miller • October 9, 2018

Who says bigger is better!? If that were the case, Jesus would have surely gathered more than 12 disciples to teach and lead. The truth is, there are some real advantages of being a small congregation! Come and hear how one church has embraced being a small congregation, and as a result has found that they can be mighty in the Kingdom of God. We'll talk about strengths, opportunities, and how to overcome 'perceived' obstacles in the small church so that we don't just survive, but actually thrive as we answer Jesus' call to discipleship and mission in our communities and world.
