“Building Worship Bridges” with Cathy Townley

In this seminar based on Cathy’s new book, Building Worship Bridges: Worship to Accelerate Neighborhood Connections,  you’ll learn the technical side of worship service development (competent) and the adaptive, relational side (compelling). The two aspects of worship bridge building always go together. Learn the five phases of worship development (Worship, Hospitality, Technology, Discipleship and Artistry), and also learn how to organize and mobilize your people for the most powerful worship service possible for your context.

Cathy Townley is an experienced worship leader, church planter, speaker and writer. With 30 plus years experience in starting worship services, revitalizing existing services, consulting with churches on how to improve their worship landscape and coaching church planters, pastors and worship leaders on how to communicate with their mission field through worship, Cathy makes worship design and leadership very practical and accessible for churches of any size.

Participants will receive a copy of Building Worship Bridges.

Registration Cost: $49 each or all three for $125

“Gearing Ministry for Your Mission Field” with Beth Ann Estock

Where are all the young people and why aren’t they in our churches? We will explore several cultural shifts that have significant implications for ministry in the 21st century as well as look at examples of innovative churches springing up all over the country. Then we will have an opportunity to work in teams to develop experiments to reach folks in our current mission field.

Beth is a coach and consultant at Epicenter Group specializing in the NONE and DONE zones of the USA. Beth was raised on the shores of Lake Erie in Northeast Ohio. Her pastoral work began in the Atlanta area but shifted to the Pacific Northwest two decades ago. During her Oregon years, Beth has served as a pastor in conventional churches as well as house churches and served as Director of New Faith Communities for the Oregon-Idaho Conference of The United Methodist Church.

Beth coaches leaders and churches with a no-nonsense approach to facing the current cultural realities while also seeking faithfulness to Christian faith traditions. Her approach is steeped in contemplative practices that help to give shape to innovation.

Beth and Paul Nixon co-authored Weird Church: Welcome to the 21st Century, a ground-breaking book on the future of American Christianity.

Registration Cost: $49 each or all three for $125
