Do you want your church to overcome its present obstacles? Do you want your leaders to have a clear vision of your end game and understand the most effective way to win?

Surely, Christianity is not a game. But we do have a clear goal: to reach people for Christ in the most expeditious way.

As in a sport, the path to victory is not always a straight line, but the winning players are consistently moving forward. Pastors and leaders are meant to be the coaches, defining and communicating the goals, the specific moves to achieve them and the intent to overcome the opposition. Churches are most likely to follow well-trained coaches.

That is why the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention has partnered with Invictus to invest in pastors and ministry leaders.

Arizona Southern Baptist pastors and leaders are invited to attend the one-day Elevate Summit Aug. 20 at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel in Phoenix.

Seven dynamic speakers (no separate tracks) will deliver unprecedented, progressive and relevant concepts to equip you and your team for greater Kingdom impact.

Presentations will include:
–Measuring What Matters
–I Can See Clearly Now?
–Creating a Generous Culture
–Maximizing Online Tools for Millennial Ministry
–Leveraging Technology in Worship
–Your Church on Mission

“There is a struggle between our culture and Scripture,” said Eddy Pearson, AZSBC evangelism/discipleship facilitator. “These are all tools to sharpen our path to victory. Plus, we have a big influence when we meet at a venue like the Sheraton. It helps us mix it up with the lost people there. We pray with the staff, servers and others.”

Learn how to become a fearless decision maker, planner, strategist on the path to your vision fulfillment. The doors open at 8:30 a.m. and the Summit begins at 9 a.m. The cost is $25 for the first person and $5 for additional person in your group. Register here.
