Emerging Leaders Conference - January 2011

“Emerging Leaders” Conference January 27 & 28 in Jackson

This event, open to younger (45 and under) clergy in the Memphis and Tennessee Conferences is the first step in an ongoing effort to strengthen the connection with each other and our leaders.

The goals of our time together are threefold:
•    To offer encouragement and support to each other
•    To help us reclaim the energy and power we experienced with our call to ministry and
•    To guide us to discern “what the Lord requires of each of us” to strengthen our faithfulness to Christ’s church in this time of massive paradigm shifts.
