Creating spaces that are creative, functional, and inexpensive with the church building you have. How to get your church and your board on board.
Have you ever tried to mobilize men? Ever been frustrated by the results, or should I say lack thereof? Don’t be. Even Jesus had a difficult time mobilizing 12 men! Yet within Jesus’ interaction with his disciples we see three keys that will help us engage and mobilize the men around us into life changing ministry.
Mark Lerom and Roger Thompson
No ministry will yield more long-term fruit than your investment in men. Yet, it is the hardest and least invested ministry in most churches. Catch a vision, matched with proven strategies that will help you build a sustainable ministry to men, and leave no man behind. Any size church can implement these disciple-making principles.

Minnesota is home to approximately 200,000 Muslims, with 10 recently elected into political office. Many questions have risen within the Christian community: Do Muslims want sharia law in MN? Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? Is Islam a religion of peace? What do Muslims think about Jesus? Does the Quran really teach that Muslims should kill the infidels? And most important, how should we as Christians engage and respond? In this workshop you will discover the answers to these questions and more.
You can quickly grow your church by 75-100 adults if you reach only 10% of this missing, forgotten, and unreached demographic. Who are they? Single parents—specifically Single Mothers. They comprise 30-45% of families in many MN communities, including rural areas. This breakout will show you how to find your local demographics, give you practical ways to navigate the world of ministry to single mothers (yes, they can be messy), and encourage you to grow your church by intentionally including this “Missing Family Demographic”.
Why do so many people encounter songs, artists, and atmospheres in our services yet still miss encountering God? Why do so many folks find themselves absent in God’s presence? Why are so many of us tempted to put ministry for God above intimacy with God? We will look at these questions and more as we seek to awaken true and Biblical worship in our hearts and in the hearts of those we serve. Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of Jeff’s new book by the same title.

The tendency of humanity is to turn relationship into religion. This discussion style breakout will examine some of our most often used words through the lens of relationship vs. religion.
Do you believe the Church is lacking in discipleship? Do you want to see Christians continue the growth process from converts to Spirit-led, disciple-makers? In this breakout, we will discuss what discipleship is and how to pioneer a movement in your church. We will also discuss what key elements should be included with discipleship and why.
Do you have questions about a particular area of ministry? Come dialogue with and gain insight from leaders with proven experience in that area.
