Renewing the Church Summit | Little Rock

Renewing the Church Summit | Little Rock

Join us for a summit on revitalization. While the church will always be the church, reaching an ever-changing world will look different tomorrow than it does today. Is your church prepared for the future? Sometimes, we must re-focus on what is important to best move forward. We will hear from Mark Clifton and Jimbo Stewart as they address strategies for church leaders who desire to position their churches for health and growth.

This is one of two summits that will be held in Arkansas. This one will take place in the ABSC Building on Tuesday, March 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A box lunch will be included. Please register below.
