Training Series 2022

Event Details

Date: Thursday, June 23, 2022 | 10am – 3pm

Hosts: Church of the Resurrection’s ShareChurch Ministry

As we emerge from a global pandemic, the art of reaching new people has become more critical than ever before. For nearly two years, people have been engaging life in relative isolation – whether we were isolated due to quarantine, work from home policies, masking and gathering restrictions or the simple fear of getting sick. The church, its pastors and leaders need to adapt to be evangelistic and outward-focused both individually and collectively. When our strategic tendency is to find ways to invite people back, what we actually need to do is focus on reaching as many new people as we can, meeting them right where they are.

Join a team of Resurrection pastors for a full day of online training on June 23 to learn how Resurrection engages with new people. You will gain an understanding of the importance of personal example, corporate strategy and outward-focused leadership in reaching out and connecting with your community. Come away with ideas you can implement for increased evangelistic outreach.

This online training takes place from 10am-3pm Central Time, with 4 sessions focusing on a different aspect of evangelistic outreach. Learn more in Session Descriptions.

You will receive one link to watch on the day of the event (for use on up to 2 screens).

What People Are Saying

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We are shifting so much to meet the needs of our community during this time that we have really been stretching our staff resources.  I am so grateful for your willingness to share – not just the content, but also the time it took just to reply (and so quickly!)!  Really, thanks!

Sharechurch is such valuable resource to us all.  I find that I access it first on many topics just to begin my research, or to confirm if we are on the right track on a number of topics.  Thank you and COR for providing this to us all.
