COAL 2017

Church Officers and Leaders Training (COAL)

We had an outstanding COAL (Church Officer and Leaders) training in the North! Excellent preaching and presentation on Millennials in Ministry by our plenary speaker Rev. Dr. Brianna Parker. Dr. Parker gave us some powerful, challenging, and on target insights and teaching about Millennials.

Participants were also challenged by the excellent presentations from all our five focus training sessions. Our Focus Training Leaders prepared our participants to strengthen their leadership capacities in order to serve with excellence in their churches and their local communities.

But if you missed COAL North, you still have another opportunity to be prepared and strengthen to serve!  COAL South will be held this coming Saturday, March 11 at First Baptist Church of Hightstown. Our speaker will be Mr. Ngwedla Paul Msiza, President of the Baptist World Alliance, who will be speaking and teaching on Justice and the Gospel!

Our focus training opportunities will include three new ones: Church Budgeting, Becoming a Station of Hope, and Cross-cultural Leadership.  Plus an encore presentation from three of our workshops held at COAL North: Creative Bible Studies and New Church Development Panels: When the New is Not So New and A Welcoming Space.
