Every church size comes with its unique challenges and joys. Senior Pastors of larger churches (over 400 in attendance) face unique leadership challenges and opportunities. You are invited to join other Senior pastors in New England for a unique two-day, two-night experience of peer learning and relationship development. The Forum is an opportunity for Senior Pastors to gather, build relationships, share best practices, and wrestle with some of the tough topics facing the local church today. If you believe you could benefit from the shared experiences of other pastors a bit further down the road in church growth, or if you believe your experiences could benefit other churches headed down the same church growth road you are on, mark you calendar and join us.
