2021 One-Day Workshops

If you're looking for a jump start for your ministry, attending a One-Day Workshop may be just the thing you need. We'll take one specific topic and spend several hours unpacking key things to consider as you get started or continue to improve your existing ministry.

What is it?

A day long on-site session at the Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, led by Danny Franks, Pastor of Guest Services.

A seminar format that will cover one of the following topics:
  • Volunteer Culture (August 31): finding, training, and keeping those who serve on the weekend.
  • Guest Services (September 28): what it is, why your church needs it, and how the gospel speaks to the way we do it.
  • After the First Visit (October 19):  taking your guests beyond the first visit with robust follow up, reproducible systems, and next steps that stick.
Workshops are held on a weekday from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.

Who should come?

Anyone who considers connections ministry part of their job description. One-Day Workshops are open to full-time or part-time staff members, ministry interns, and key volunteers.

Workshops are priced affordably, because we strongly encourage you to come with at least one other person from your team (staff or volunteers). Load up the van, and amplify the impact on your church!

Anyone who wants to connect. Workshops target a mid-sized audience of 40-80 participants.

What do I get?

Workshops are $99 per person, and include:
  • Specific training in particular areas, helping you to focus on where you are and where you need to be.
  • New friendships from churches of all shapes and sizes.
  • Practical tools and resources to help you get started.
  • Meals and snacks throughout the day.
Because of the ongoing uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic, we're making all of our 2021 Workshops 100% refundable. If numbers rise or a team member gets sick or you just get weirded out at the thought of traveling, we'll refund all of your registration costs, no questions asked. Simply let us know one full week prior to your Workshop. 

What others are saying:

"Exceptionally well done and informative Workshop! Everything was professionally done, on time, and well thought out. The materials and workbook were excellent." - Tom Armbrister, London Bridge Baptist Church, Virginia Beach, VA

"I was afraid [the Workshop] might not be very valuable because it was only one day and it wasn't very expensive. But...I took a chance. Wow! It was amazing information that was very practical. I took away two or three really great ideas...I will definitely come back next year!" - Laura Johnson, First Baptist Church, Bristol, IN

"This was easily one of the most informative, practical workshops that I've ever been a part of. Ultimately, I would sit through it again tomorrow, because I know there's a wealth of knowledge in there that I missed.." - Jonathan Creel, New Horizon Church, Durham, NC

"I've never been to an event that helped shape our thinking framework and equipped us with vision like this one has." - Dr. Matthew Robinson, First Baptist Church, Orlando, FL

The content is strategic, thoughtful, practical, adaptable, and points to the gospel. You won't regret going - sign up!" - Christy Burke, Bridgeway Church, Oklahoma City, OK

"The Workshop provided ample discussion for our team to brainstorm and see areas to improve and HOW to improve." - Stephanie Greeson, Westover Church, Greensboro, NC
