20 Revitalized Churches in Colorado by 2020!

Our next ReVi gathering will be Sunday-Monday, February 26-27 at Golden Bell Camp and Conference Center. Check-in is at 4:00 pm in the Lodge.
The theme for this event is “Creating a Culture of Excellence.” We have invited Don Diehl to speak to us in two of the four sessions, “How to Transition from Mediocrity to Excellence,” and “How to Achieve a Culture of Excellence.” Russ Martin will talk to us about “How to Identify Spiritual Gifts and Strengths,” and Amy Guthrie will tackle the subject, “How to Recruit and Deploy Volunteers.” These presentations will flow together with practical information and inspiring models. We welcome these new voices to speak into our lives and ministry. Please help us pray for them as they prepare to be with us for our final classroom event before our church-site visit later this spring.
Open to Other Pastors
Since all of our speakers are guest speakers, our DS and leadership team have decided to open our sessions to all of our district pastors, giving them yet another opportunity to experience the depth and direction of our ReVi initiative.  It is our hope that many of them will sign up for our new ReVi cohort when that time comes.  Please welcome them to our gathering and share with them the blessings and benefits you have received over the past two years!  We really do need each other!

Reserve Your Space.  Knowing that some of our other pastors may also choose to attend the entire event, we wanted to give our regular participating pastors and church leaders a first opportunity to register and reserve the type of room accommodation you want.  Please register early to get your choice.  The registration portal will be open and available to you soon.  We will open the portal for everyone else around the 10th of February

We recommend that you register prior to that time to ensure your space.
