SNU PASTOR’S FORUM – RELEVANT RESOURCES FOR MINISTRY
Coming Monday, March 5, 2018 to the campus of SNU, and live streamed to host sites across the South Central Region and beyond, the Spring Pastor’s Forum promises to be packed with great inspiration, practical teaching and resources to encourage you in your calling to ministry.
Presented by the Resource Center for Pastoral Leadership at SNU, the Forum begins at 9:00am and concludes at noon. Cost is only $20 per person for three hours of life-long learning enrichment. Attend on campus in the Royce Brown Business Building, or register to view at a host site, or on your personal computer.
Featured speakers are Dr. Keith Newman, president of SNU, who will be sharing on Live Last Leadership, and Dr. Jim Fitzgerald, chair of SNU’s School of Theology and Ministry, whose topic is Hungering and Thirsting for Righteousness: Resources for Preaching and Communion in the Holiness Tradition.
Expanding on the Live Last lifestyle introduced in his inaugural address, Dr. Newman will apply the teaching found in Mark 9:35 to leadership and service in our lives and ministry. Dr. Newman will challenge us to be counter-cultural and Live Last, like Jesus did. Dr. Fitzgerald’s presentation will help pastors provide meaningful connections between their preaching and administration of the sacrament of communion. From giving fresh perspectives on biblical texts for communion sermons, to “how to” scenarios for distributing the elements, this seminar will provide resources and give practical advice for pastors. REGISTER NOW!
