2009 LifeServe National Conference: Putting Ministry Into Motion
Newly official conference name reveals expanded vision and offerings
Church Volunteer Central and the Externally-Focused Network are pleased to unveil the official name for their jointly-sponsored, 2009 national gathering of ministry leaders:
LifeServe National Conference
With the goal, "Putting Ministry Into Motion," LifeServe is the culmination of months of concentrated planning, and it represents an exciting, expanded vision for this one-of-a-kind national ministry event. Dave Thornton, executive director of Church Volunteer Central, had this to say at the unveiling of the official conference name on April 13, 2009:
"After much prayer and conversation with church leaders, we decided to encapsulate the vision for this conference in a name that provides a clear -- and immediate -- message of what we are all about: LifeServe. Giving our lives in service to Christ and to others is the heart of ministry. At Church Volunteer Central and the Externally-Focused Network, we're dedicated to helping leaders everywhere succeed in that life-changing effort.
"As a result, LifeServe will be an unforgettable event that helps churches become both internally strong and externally focused. We can't wait!"
The first annual LifeServe National Conference is scheduled for September 30 - October 2, 2009, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa, and Conference Center in Loveland, Colorado.
The theme for the 2009 conference is, "Equipped to Climb." Expanded offerings include nationally-known keynote speakers, John Ortberg, Reggie McNeal, Wayne Cordiero, and Rick Rusaw. Additionally, LifeServe will provide more than 80 practical, inspiring workshops led by in-the-trenches experts active in local ministry. Ideal for both professional and volunteer leaders, LifeServe will feature training trails and networking opportunities for pastors, outreach leaders, Christian education directors, youth and children's leaders, beginning equippers, veteran ministry leaders, multi-hat leaders, large church leaders, small church leaders, and more.
Brian Mavis, executive director of the Externally Focused Network promises, "LifeServe will be one of the most helpful conferences of the year, with ideas that are innovative, collaborative, and transformative."
