MinistryLift Equipping Conference

Dear friends,

We would love to have you join us for the upcoming MinistryLift Equipping Conference at ACTS Seminaries (7600 Glover Road in Langley, BC) and via live-streaming October 24-25, 2014 (8:30 am – 4:00 pm, PDT, both days). We have 12 confirmed equipping tracks with 4 workshops in each track:

Friday, Oct. 24 Tracks – Christianity and Culture, ChurchWorks Church Administration, Healing Discipleship, Leadership Essentials 1, Prayer, and Rural Ministry

Saturday, Oct. 25 Tracks - Authentic Leadership, Children’s Ministry, Coaching/Mentoring, Leadership Essentials 2, Marriage and Family, Personal Health

Onsite participants can register for one or both days (live-streaming participants have one fee for both days).

Presenters include Dr. Alvin Vander Griend (author of seven books on prayer), Ken Dyck (Founder and International Director of Freedom Session), Derek Ross (Director of Legal Affairs for the Canadian Council of Charities), Nikki White (Prayer Ministry Trainer), John Wassen (professional counselor with New Life Counselling Clinic), Ron Toews and his team from Leaders2Learners, David and Melissa McVety (Associate Director at Doing Family Right), Brent and Nikki Lanigan (Children’s Ministry specialists) and a host of others with expertise and passion that they will bring to the conference.

Here is a breakdown of the Early Bird registration costs (until September 30):

Onsite Registration – $45/day or $75/both days

Live-streaming Registration – $35/person, $140/church (churches that purchase a church registration can give access to the live-streaming and session recordings to anyone in their church – individual participants must still register, but don’t have to pay). Almost half of those who participated in the three previous MinistryLift Conferences did so via live-streaming.

Please note that onsite participants can pre-order lunches and parking passes for an additional cost ($10/lunch and $4/parking pass). This helps to keep the cost lower for those who prefer to bring their own lunches and/or those who carpool.

We would greatly appreciate if you could pass along the conference information to those in your network and have attached a graphic file that you can use for promoting the event.

We look forward to an amazing time as God helps us take our lives and service to Him to the next level.
