After several years of dreaming about working with our Ministerial candidates at the inception of their ministry development and at the beginning of their ministerial call, we have finally had the first Ministry Assessment Weekend Retreat to fulfill this dream.

And what a fantastic weekend it was!

The entire weekend is devoted to assessing, evaluating and testing the candidates for future ministry. The presenters and assessors, who have volunteered their time, come in and work with the candidates and help them to understand their call to ministry and what that involves.

There is instruction, training, and worship as well as testing and case studies.  This also involves helping them to understand all the steps and the process that lays ahead in getting their district licensure as well as what is involved in completion toward the end goal of ordination.

We had 27 total attend or participate in the assessment weekend. The candidates were very encouraged as well as the presenters.

Thanks to Dr Kevin Compton for the great work that he did in putting this together over the last 3 years. And to Golden Bell and their staff as well as all the other participants:  Dr. Jim Russom, Jay Hawes, Andy Lucas, Chris Luddington, Padraic Ingle, Mickey Cox, Dr. Laurel Matsen, Rev Kim Smith, Emmanuel Reinbold, Dr. Chuck Self, DS Dave Ralph, Mark Kulaga and Jim Lynch.

IT WAS A WIN!!!  
   I LOVE WINS!!!
     And this was a WIN for Team Colorado!!!

ReVi Retreat #3 February 2016

20 Revitalized Churches in Colorado by 2020!

Our Colorado District third session for the ReVitalization training continues February 28 and 29, 2016.
 
This February gathering is a continuation on this particular three-year track of Vibrant Church Revitalization. This exciting district initiative offers learning, networking with other pastors, and coaching from our leadership team to encourage an even more effective ministry in your local church. A special feature in the Spring of 2016 will be a visit to a “turnaround church”  that will inspire fresh perspectives and new ideas for your own ministry. The cost for these training events at Golden Bell is $40 per person, two in a room, all meals and presentation handouts. To have a room with no roommate is $60, including all meals and presentation handouts. The District Office and Golden Bell Camp is subsidizing the remaining two-thirds of the cost of this event. The cost of the church-site visit to a turnaround church is  yet to be determined, but will reflect the actual cost of travel, lodging, meals, etc.
