Welcome to the District Seminars and Workshops Page!
State SS Chairmen and District Pastors looking for quality training events for pastors and church leaders will find a variety of resources on this page.
These seminars are Power Point and Video presentations and come with work books so busy pastors and leaders can easily keep and adapt these concepts to fit their local congregations. The seminars are designed to fit either a one day or two evening format. There are seminars on leadership, small groups, and Sunday school. All of them have been used effectively at either Pastors' Training Days, District/State Sunday School Conventions, or on District tours. Most of them can be edited to meet the needs in any one state or district.
The Concern of many Small and Middle Sized Churches: * Often Pastors are deeply committed, but either inexperienced (or have not had a healthy role model). * Smaller churches some times do not have a strategy for outreach and growth. * Consequently, some fellowships struggle just to maintain the status quo. Unleashing the Small and Middle Sized Churchwill help the inexperienced pastor (or those who do not naturally develop a church growth strategy) to design just such a plan for their congregations. This is a dynamic 4 hour interactive seminar that has been presented in regional Sunday school conventions and to Pastor's continuing training events nationally. The theme of this seminar is, "Discovering Four Keys to Unlocking YOUR Church'es Potential for Growth!" It is presented in four parts of approximately an hour each.
Here are the four topics built into this powerful ongoing education event: * The "Point Man": Being The Spiritual Leader as Pastor . * Empowering Laity to serve and lead. * Small Groups: A strategy for lay leadership and community. * Team Building: Creating a healthy functioning leadership team.
To maximize the power of this day, Pastors and leaders can take the Spiritual Growth Survey and discuss its value and how they can use it in their churches. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this seminar and request a sample copy of the workbook.

Upgrading the Sunday School, OR...How to Boil a Frog! Transfiguring the Traditional Sunday to a 21st Century Model
Shifting to a new paradigm can be excruciatingly painful. Change is difficult for even committed men and women, and yet so much has change in the past 10 years, we must adapt if we are to capture and hold the attention of 21st Americans.
In this cutting edge seminar, Dave Slamp challenges pastors, leaders, and teachers alike face the need to upgrade our approaches and methodology to communicate in a post modern world. While we are deeply committed to the message of Jesus, we know we simply must now face the needs of a more technological and even impersonal day. This seminar can be presented in either a 2-hour or 4-hour format, and comes with both participant's workbooks and Power Point presentation.
Here are just a few hot topics addressed in this seminar:
* 6 Facts about Paradigms. * 4 Innovative Options for the Future of Sunday School. * 8 Essentials of Transitioning Your Sunday School.
This seminar has been received well at both District Sunday School and Discipleship Conventions and regional Christian Education Conferences. An excellent seminar to equip leaders to make changes constructively in their Sunday schools!
