Get Equipped in Central, IL!

This par-tay is gonna be C-R-A-Z-Y… and you won't want to miss it… especially if you volunteer in any capacity at your church! People from all over the state… and all the surrounding states will be there. I kid you not. What am I talking about?  I'm talking about…
It's all going down on February 24-25 at Peoria Christian School. Complete details here.  


Here's what Cadre Ministries is bringing for encouragement and equipping for the two days:

Friday:

Turning Pew Potatoes Into Passionate Participators
by Bill Allison, 9:15 AM, Choir Room
About 20% of churchgoers volunteer their time and talents in their church. That means about 80% of the people in our churches are pew potatoes. This is not only unhealthy, it's unbiblical. How can we cooperate with God in turning pew potatoes into passionate participators? Come and find out.

Disciplemaking Is Relationships
by Bill Allison, 10:45 AM, Choir Room
Jesus-like disciplemaking isn't a program, it's a way of life. If you're interesting in developing a Jesus-like way of life, then this workshop is for you. Bring you Bible, pen, notebook, and some friends because disciplemaking is relationships.

The Teaching Genius of Jesus
by Bill Allison, 2:45 PM, Choir Room
It's time to take your teaching cues from the greatest teacher who ever graced the planet—JESUS! Come to explore, discover, and apply The Teaching Genius of Jesus to your life and ministry as a volunteer teacher or small group leader. Bring your Bible!

The Challenge of Finishing Well
by Bill Allison, 4:30 PM, Choir Room
The spiritual racetrack of life is littered with the broken lives of those who had great starts. Many of these folks were smarter, stronger, more talented, and even more pious than most of us—but for one reason or another—they did NOT finish well. Does that concern you? It should. To truly finish this life well, you must run strong all the way to the end. That's exactly what we'll explore together in this workshop.

Saturday:

Time Management for Painfully Pooped-Out People
by Bill Allison, 8 AM, Choir Room
This is NOT your typical time management workshop! You won't leave this training with more to do in your already overloaded life. Instead, you will learn to wrestle with what God wants you to say yes to—and then how deal with the rest. You can expect lots of interaction, Bible study (bring your Bibles and schedule planners), and FUN.

The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus
by Bill Allison, 11 AM, Choir Room
Jesus is the master disciplemaker. He commanded you to make disciples like Him. This session is for those who would like to explore the disciplemaking genius of Jesus and what that looks like for us today. Bring your Bible, pen, notebook and some friends.

Your First and Most Important Job as a Volunteer in the Church
by Bill Allison, 2:30 PM, Choir Room
What's the most important thing you can do as a volunteer in church? You might be surprised at what you find out in this workshop. If you're a volunteer, this is for you!

Seven Biblical Ways God Wants You to Encourage Your Pastor
by Bill Allison, 4 PM, Choir Room
Your pastor, by calling, is an encourager. But who is encouraging your pastor? While pastoring can be tremendously rewarding, it can also be daunting, demanding, and disheartening. Make no mistake about it: Your pastor needs your encouragement. And God's Word shows YOU at least seven biblical ways to encourage your pastor. This workshop is for you... not your pastor.

Come to take in the training and then hangout with Bill and the lovely Stacy Allison (and probably baby Ivy) at the Cadre Ministries booth in the exhibit hall.  And bring a few friends from your church/ministry with you.
