Helpful Breakouts

For Pastors' Wives...
Coming Back Better 
Coletta Smith, Director of Alongside Ministries
Hardship happens, but it doesn’t have to be for nothing. While we can’t wait to return to “normal”, what if we came back as stronger, more courageous, more steadfast versions of ourselves? This breakout, for pastors' wives only, will help you embrace God’s reshapingwork in your life through this crisis. We’ll dive into issues like control, recovery, recapturing fun, strengthening your team, and building enduring connections in your marriage.
For Youth Leaders...
Resilient Faith: Equipping students for the 2020s of life. 
Rebecca Jacobson, National Director, Youth Ministry Consultants
The last year has proved the promise of scripture- in this world you will have trouble. Our students have faced incredible challenges -- the loss of their social structures, ever changing education models, anxiety, fear, and so much more. Too often these challenges choke out faith when it’s needed more than ever before. In this breakout we’ll dig into practical, biblical strategies to equip students for life-long, enduring faith. 
For Pastors and teachers... 
Good Questions for Better Preaching
Craig Smith, Lead Pastor, Mission Hills Church
While a lot has changed for church over the last 12 months, one thing remains true: if you want better results, ask better questions. Now more than ever, with our audiences online, in-person or a mixture of both, the kinds of questions we ask about the messages we’re preparing can have a huge impact on how effective those messages are in helping people move forward in their relationship with Jesus. Explore four practical, but powerful questions we can be asking about our messages to increase their effectiveness.
For Online Pastors and Volunteers...
Enlarging and Embracing Your Online Congregation
Ryan Ingram, Harbor Church, Online Pastor
Experts agree that some facets of church life will eventually get back to normal, but they all agree that online ministry is a new frontier every congregation needs to develop and utilize to increase their ministry effectiveness. Pastor Ryan Ingram will help you do just that with his training
For Children's leaders and parents of young children...
"Pandemic Parenting" How to help shape your young children spiritually from home.
Kayla Maxey, Harbor Church
The pandemic has caused many parents to realize they don't have the tools necessary to grow their kids' faith apart from church activities. But help is on the way. If church leaders see, care for and equip parents properly, it will open the door to parents more effectively discipling their children at home.
For Outreach leaders...  
The Church Has Left The Building
Brian Hays, Lead Pastor Rock Creek Church
Rock Creek Church has done an amazing job connecting with their community during the pandemic crisis. They don't plan on stopping when the crisis subsides. Come learn best practices and gain new ideas on how you can be Jesus in your community.
For Worship leaders and team members...
Beyond the Song
James Damey, Worship Pastor, Cheyenne Hills Church
How do we as worship leaders and church leaders help our congregations and teams experience the message, moments, and miracle of worship. Is it possible to lead beyond the song to teach and inspire others to a deeper understanding of what worship truly is? Join me as we have open discussion and look at practical ways we can shape our moments of influence during and outside of weekend services.
