Church Accounting Network:

Church accounting continue to become a much more complex profession requiring cutting edge education and information. This deep dive into current guidelines and emerging trends will be a great asset to both the CPA specialist and the generalist in charge of accounting. Join this network and qualify for six hour of CPE credit.

Schedule coming soon.

Executive Pastor Network:

Inevitably, idealistic ministry plans get diluted or sidetracked by human interaction and/or drama. What does a high-performing ministry team look like? We will explore a model for building a staff that maximizes individual gifts and keeps the priority of the mission of the church at the forefront. 

Plan to gather for a one-day learning experience with fellow executive pastors? The role is increasingly a mainstay in large churches, but one that comes in many varieties. Join us for a fast-paced, interactive FastTrack for Executive Pastors, just prior to National Conference.

Bring your experience and questions and learn in the interactive day. 

Information:  contact the national office or Melvin Jones, Executive Pastor @ Antioch Baptist Church, Fairfax Station VA. 

Church Facilities Network: 

Energy, lighting, security, setup, capital maintenance, parking, occupancy permits, fire safety and the list goes on of the tasks and responsibilities around church facilities. This six hour intensive will focus on the facilities leader for congregations. Whether it is a full-time responsibility for you or one of the many hats you wear, this time invested will provide you with new insight and wisdom to meet the daily and long-term challenge of a facility well maintained.
