As a church leader, how do you encourage your team on a consistent basis?
Maybe it’s cookies in the break room.
Maybe it’s a raise.
Maybe it’s words of encouragement at just the right time.
One of the most effective ways I’ve seen to give back to your team is to set aside time for staff-wide training. That may sound pretty dry, but it doesn’t have to be, especially if you choose the right kind of learning experience. In addition to knowing that they’re being invested in, a set-apart time for staff-wide training also offers your team more opportunities to get to know each other—to continue becoming a team.
On April 14, 2016, I’ll be taking part in the all-new, all-online Flow Creative Arts Conference. This unique event targeting church leaders and church creatives will provide a one-day opportunity for team-building and training.
Through streamed keynotes and on-demand access to breakout sessions, you’ll learn how to:
- Practically enhance Sunday morning worship experiences
- Build a creative process system
- Lead a productive creative team
- Connect with people through art forms
- Work with key stakeholders
- See, experience, and incarnate the meaning and purpose of creative arts within your church.
Flow’s speaker lineup includes Jenni Catron (me!), Brad Lomenick, Stephen Brewster, Aaron Ivey, Jonathan Malm, Phil Bowdle, Brady Shearer, Blaine Hogan, Whitney George, and its host, Tim Peters.
The current cost is only $129 (extended until Feb. 22) and covers your entire church staff and/or volunteer teams. In other words, you don’t pay individually. This conference is for you and your team, to help all of you reconnect with why you do what you do.
The live portion of the conference, which will include being able to interact with the speakers via social media, will run from noon to 4 p.m. EST and feature seven keynote sessions.
If you or your team can’t make April 16th work, registration allows you on-demand access to all keynotes and breakouts after the conference is over.
Invest in your team today and register for the Flow Creative Arts Conference.
I’ll see you there. And maybe I’ll bring the cookies!
