Ministry Boot Camp has been a powerful event year after year and we are planning for this to be the same. I wanted to let you know that although many of us are still not able to gather in person, we are committed to providing high impact training and ministry for lay leaders and staff ministers from across our region.
This year’s lineup of speakers will bring an online training experience that will certainly impart life and equip us for ministry in the season ahead.
This year's Ministry Boot Camp will be Tuesday through Thursday, May 17-19, 2022 and will broadcast all of the content over Zoom. We are excited to hear from Dr. David Ireland as well as others.
This year will be another opportunity to share the Ministry Boot Camp experience with members of your team who historically couldn’t make the trip. We hope you will spread the word and be ready for a powerful time together!
Hope you can join us!
Pastor Ron Lewis
to join us on Zoom May 17-19, 2022!
Dr. David Ireland will be our primary presenter on Wednesday of the Ministry Boot Camp.
David is one of the most influential pastors in our nation, and one of the best coaches I have ever experienced.
This year's speaker lineup was strategically chosen to help you grow in your leadership, both personally and in your ministry roles. We are excited to hear how they will enrich our world in the days ahead.
