LEAD Weekend

I am so excited about this weekend! It has been in the dreaming stage for over a year, in the planning stage for six months and in the bitting my nails stage for about two weeks. And it's going to be awesome!

We have a great program prepared for you. Three special workshop speakers:
1. Our own Pr Kevin Amos will be inspiring his class with chruch growth and health material.
2. Our division Children's ministry director Julie Westlake will be teaching us how to reach kids for Christ.
3. SNSW's Personal Ministries and SS director Norm Hardy will be explaining how Sabbath Schools and Small Groups can be maximized to reach the lost.

I first saw the idea of a Training weekend modelled in Victoria where I minstered before Tassie. In Vic they have GT Weekend and it is very good. Lots of streams, lots of guests, lots of people. Here in Tassie we have less people to train and therefore can only bring a few speakers each year. So, we have gone for three major areas of importance - kids, groups, and church health. All three of these are eveangelistic in nature and therefore we will be Highlighting the E in LEAD this year.
