Community . . . God's Way
What is the time frame and format? This conference is aimed at all people, both inside and outside the walls of your church. It is an excellent way to reach “unchurched” people in your community. It is 6 hours of teaching and small group discussion around 5 general topics of conversations designed to build healthy relationships: AFFIRMATION, EXHORTATION, MY PAIN, YOUR PAIN, and FAITH.
What are the venue, audio/visual needs for this conference? It works best around tables, but can be done in any venue where the group can gather in small groups. It uses Power Point (video only, no audio). A wireless microphone would be most helpful, as the presenters do move around while speaking.
What are the costs and expenses? The conference fee is $1,500 per day plus expenses (which include travel & lodging for two team members, and the costs for the participant’s guides at $5 each).
Who are the presenters? Blake Coffee, our Exec. Director, is the author of this relationship material and has been working with church leaders as a trainer and coach for approximately 20 years. Our trainer/facilitators are all professional communicators.
