Building Faith for Tomorrow – Sept 9

I am looking forward to the 2nd Annual Building Faith for Tomorrow: Ministry Workshop on September 8, 2012 at the West Houston Church of Christ in Houston, TX.

Last year, our inaugural workshop, began as a Bible Teachers Workshop with close to 300 in attendance with dozens of churches in attendance. This year we are expanding our offerings to include tracks in children education, adult education, youth and family ministry, and leadership/eldership.

Registration is $30 ($15 if you are at Champions) which includes a great lunch.  You can register online (unless you are champions and want the $15 price, then sign the bulletin board or email me)

We are very excited about the lineup of speakers this year and we are confident that everyone will benefit from the workshop to the glory of God.

Our Keynote is Dr. Monte Cox who is speaking on cultural changes and implication for making disciples.
