Saturday Afternoon Workshops

Session 3 @1:15 PM
How to Talk Good with Rev Mike Davis
Public Speaking for People Who Don’t Do Public Speaking

Are you a board member, platform leader or prayer chaplain? Are you sometimes called upon to speak from the platform or in meetings, even though you’re not a professional presenter?

Not everyone has spent a lifetime developing the skills and techniques involved in public speaking, but they are absolutely learnable. In this workshop, we’all work and practice together to build confidence, effectiveness and clarity in our communications.

Just think about how it would move all our churches forward if every single person who spoke stepped up their game by even a little bit. Let’s do this!

Session 4
Ethics with Rev Beth Head
What is an Ethics Violation?

Let’s be clear: what is an ethics violation? What happens when someone is charged with an ethics violation?  We will discuss some common ways that people err into ethics violations.  This applies to every credentialed leader, ministries/churches and the ministry/church leadership.
