Dr. Howard Bixby
The Changing Ministries for Changing Times seminar is especially designed for those who organize or lead others in the church ministry. The goal is to enable you to better plan, make decisions, and lead others in church ministry through changes and changing times. The seminar shows leaders how to evaluate possible changes and how to lead a group through a change in ministry method or program.
Folks who should make every effort to attend include pastors, deacons, Sunday school superintendents, adult class officers, youth sponsors, AWANA club leaders, and anyone in a church leadership roll.
For best results, each church should be represented by a group of people who are normally involved in various levels of church leadership. This group will be prepared to return to their church with their pastor and lead through change together with their pastor.
