Are you ready? Jesus is Calling Us Out.


Conference Lay Leader Greg Rentsch is the keynote speaker for the Leadership Development session during Annual Conference 2016.  He will facilitate a conversation about the ways we all can progress as we move from membership to discipleship.

“As disciples, Jesus asks us: to be part of His body through a life of worship and hospitality; to become more like Him with a life opening to – and obeying – Him; and to join Him in ministry through a life of generosity and service,” Rentsch said. 

Promoting a common definition of being a disciple of Jesus Christ is a focus of the Board of Laity.
