Mini Congress Classes

Class 1: PASTORAL ADMINISTRATION (For Pastors and Preachers)
Description: Along with the special role of pastor comes special problems and tough issues that must be handled gracefully, effectively and sometimes publicly. Dr. Lutzer gives pastors encouragement and solutions that will help them better serve God and their churches.  
Pastor to Pastor  is an inspiring collection of twenty articles written by Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor of The Moody Church in Chicago. Dr. Lutzer offers practical advice on how to handle difficult situations involving: Unrealistic expectations from the congregation, Lazy Christians, Negative and critical church members, Burnout, Politics, Church splits counseling, Public invitations, Conflicts with the church board ... and more.
Teacher: Pastor Oscar T. Moses (IL)
Textbook: Pastor to Pastor, Erwin Lutzer
Class 2: BECOMING AN EFFECTIVE PASTOR (For Young Pastors and Preachers)
Description: Calvin Miller has long been one of the most creative voices in the church. As a best-selling author and poet he has enabled believers to flourish. As a pastor and educator he has equipped countless thousands to know and serve God more fully. And he's got the battle scars to prove it. Having survived these tumultuous decades, Dr. Miller now shares his well-earned wisdom with the next generation of pastors- including you, or someone you know. Miller acknowledges much has changed over his years, as we've moved from switchboards to smartphones and from big-haired evangelists to cigar-smoking emergent. But two truths remain the same: God is love and people are broken. In this honest, engaging, and humorous collection of letters, he encourages you to fight the good fight, stay the course, and keep your eye on the Author and Finisher of the faith . . . to serve well every Sunday so you'll never feel the urge to resign on Monday.
Teacher: Dr. Q. E. Hammonds (AL)
Textbook : Letters to a Young Pastor, Calvin Miller

This book, written by seasoned leaders, provides many proven tools to help start a women's ministry in your church.

  Class 6: GROWING THROUGH EVANGELISM (For persons interested in Evangelism)
Description: Jesus gave his followers a command: "Follow me." And a promise: "And I will equip you to find others to follow me." We were made to make disciples. Designed for use in discipleship relationships and other focused settings, Multiply will equip you to carry out Jesus's ministry. Each of the twenty-four sessions in the book corresponds with an online video  where New York Times bestselling author David Platt joins Francis in guiding you through each part of Multiply. One plus one plus one. Every copy of Multiply is designed to do what Jesus did: make disciples who make disciples who make disciples.... Until the world knows the truth of Jesus Christ.
Teacher: Pastor Jordan Ivey (TN)
Textbook: Multiplying, Francis Chan
