CEO Day: Planning Strategies and Spiritual Maintenance for Ministers
August 22, 2018 @ 6:30 am - 11:00 am| $10
Planning Strategies and Spiritual Maintenance for Ministers
As ministers, we often get so busy “doing” for the Lord and His people, that we forget our own spiritual walk. It is easy to get so wrapped up in our “ministry” and work and forget that our first call is to grow in our relationship with Christ. We can’t give what we don’t have! Often times, we are so busy planning youth nights and events, we forget to plan for our own spiritual growth. As we plan our calendars, it is important that we make sure that Christ is not a small part, but is at the forefront of all the planning and preparation that we do.
Come join us, as we have a practical day of ministry formation. We will engage in discussion and dialogue regarding great planning strategies and spiritual maintenance. Our Lord teaches us through parables about redemption and salvation. Through the stories of the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin and the Lost Son, we will recognize all we have been given through a life of ministry.
Our Speaker for this CEO day will be the popular Doug Tooke. Doug will be emceeing the National Catholic Conference on Youth Ministry in December in Tampa.
Doug was the presenter at our Jr. High Rally last November and our Renew and Rejoice retreat this past May. Doug is a much sought after speaker, and recently was hired by Lifeteen and ODB Films who produced “Paul, Apostle of Christ.”
