The Center for Church Development is bringing in Rev. Mike Ramsdell who will share how he grew his church through starting numerous new worship services. As he shares, "Some of these worship services took. Others did not, but we learned from each of them."

Rev. Ramsdell also as the developer of the Central Texas Conference led an initiative to start new worship services in the Central Texas Conference. During that initiative, the Central Texas Conference was the only conference to experience an increase in worship attendance.

Join us as we learn practical steps from proven practitioners from the NTC on how to start new worship services and how multiplication can bring vitalization to your church. Come learn from their mistakes and successes.

After the presentation, we will break into groups for further discussions and practical approaches on launching worship services.
