Our upcoming 2017 Leaders' Training Day

Posted by Stephen Witmer on January 17th, 2017

Dear PCF,

One of the things I most love about our church is the many, many people who cheerfully serve. My heart is full of thanks to God for each of you.

If you serve in ministry at PCF, I want to invite you to our 8th annual Leaders’ Training Day on Saturday, February 4, 2017. We are defining ‘leader’ broadly, as anyone who serves in ministry in any way at PCF. If you greet on Sunday mornings, or serve as a Deacon, or teach a PCF Kids class, or make the coffee, or mow the lawn, or lead a Life Group, or shovel the steps, or…the list goes on and one…you’re invited!

Our desire is to say thanks by providing an enjoyable time together with other PCF leaders and volunteers and excellent Bible teaching that will equip you for even more effective ministry.

Our Leaders’ Training Day this year will run from 9am – 2pm on February 4 (come a bit early for coffee and a snack). We will provide lunch and childcare. Best of all, these training days are always times of togetherness and laughter and joy. I’m excited about our Training Day this year, because pastor and author Jonathan Dodson will be teaching us about ‘Everyday Mission with Jesus,’ what it looks like to allow our love for Jesus and desire to make him known shape our everyday lives. Jonathan has written several helpful books, including Gospel-Centered Discipleship, The Unbelievable Gospel, and Raised? and is a great teacher of the Bible.

Our past seven Leaders’ Training days have been highlights of my year, so I’m looking forward to our time together. Please make every effort to be there. I trust it will equip all of us to better serve God and his people at PCF.

Please RSVP as soon as possible to the church office for planning purposes. Also, if you’re a parent and bringing a child/children, please pack a lunch for your child. The children will eat lunch together downstairs.

With anticipation,

Pastor Stephen
