Church Planters LAUNCH Conference Atlanta Sept 30
WOW I'm excited to be able to plug the upcoming LAUNCH Conference to be held at Avalon Church, Atlanta on September 30th. Bob Franquiz will be leading the day, and he knows what he's talking about!
As an Aussie now living and learning in Cumming, Georgia I have a confession - it is guys like Bob Franquiz, Nelson Searcy, Shawn Lovejoy, David Putman, Mark Driscoll, Steven Furtick, Gary Lamb and Michael Lukaszewski (to name but just a few) that have literally changed the way I think about church leadership and church planting. It's the blogs of these men that are part of how God has me and my family in the States in a season of learning and preparing. So if there's any church planters out there reading this, get along to this!!
Anyway a few of the things we'll be breaking down on the day include...
- What the best launch dates are (and the worst!)
- The most critical factor to the success of your church (and it's not what you think!)
- The most effective ways to raise funds for your church plant
- The biggest mistakes on staffing and how to avoid them
- How your preview services can have the greatest impact in your community
- How to pick the best location for your launch (it's not as easy as it looks)
- How to maintain momentum between preview services
- How to launch large!
- Plus much, much more!
If you're there, make sure you walk up and say "Hi", I'd love to connect with you!
