Read This If You Need More Money For Ministry

If you’d like to hang out with seven outstanding pastors who are knocking it out of the park in transforming their communities for Christ on a limited budget, take a look at this video from Pastor Stacy Spencer at New Direction Christian Church in Memphis, TN

These pastors each work with economically challenged reality, and yet they have each found significant breakthroughs that other churches can learn from – partnerships with their cities, community development corporations, grants, facilities with multiple use, and more. So all in one location you get the insider’s story of New Direction’s amazing work at transforming their city, but you also hear from Floyd Flake (Greater Allen AME, Queens, NY), Buster Soaries (First Baptist, Lincoln Gardens, NJ), Jamal Bryant(Empowerment Temple, Baltimore), Matthew Barnett (Dream Center, Los Angeles), E. Dewey Smith(Greater Travelers Rest, Decatur, GA), and Freddie Haynes (Friendship West Baptist, Dallas). What a notable, nationally known group of pacesetters!

Yes, the conference is biased toward “transforming the ‘hood for good,” as one of the workshops says, but it is by no means limited to urban or ethnic applications. Any church serious about making a difference in its community, and mobilizing its people to do so, will find much practical help here.

I would be going, even if Leadership Network weren’t a co-sponsor, and even if the registration didn’t include five tasty Memphis-style meals (it does).  I’ll not only take a lot of notes, but the setting is intimate enough that every participant should be able to interact personally with some of the speakers. If you’re facing lots of ministry opportunity, and you want to learn how to “do more with less,” as the conference title promises, register now before it’s full.

See you there. It’s the best $199 you could spend. Here’s the link to register or learn more.
