ELEVATE conversation

Join us at Creekside Church - Elk Grove (8:30am coffee/tea bar will be available)

Greg Henson, president of Sioux Falls Seminary will be our resource person and facilitator for our time together.  Back in November, NORCAL and NAB held a joint effort in select a group of 10 millennial NORCAL church leaders for three days of conversation with Greg.  We called it "Elevate".  Now is opportunity for you to join in the conversation and continue with us as we listen and learn together in NORCAL.

One of the initiatives of the North American Baptist Conference is to elevate young leaders.  It is no secret that our conference of churches is aging, and with this aging there can come an aging of ideas and perspectives as well.  The world is changing so rapidly that it is likely that we do not even know the issues that must be addressed, nor the changes that must be made, in our current way of leading and ministering in this world.    And perhaps in the process, our churches can begin to discover at least some part of the road that we must walk together.
 
 When Greg became President of Sioux Falls Seminary in 2013, he was the first ever Millennial president of a seminary in North America.  Greg deeply understands Millennial issues, as well as the issues facing the Church today, and he is a creative leader and thinker in the area of change management.  We’re very excited that Greg will be with us to help us learn from each other.

Student Leader Connection Event

Held at CreeksideChristian Church
8939 East Stockton Blvd., Elk Grove, CA 95624

Do you find yourself caught in the "black-hole" of promoting events, creating curriculum, attending meetings and cleaning the youth room far too often?  Is it possible that actual relationships with students is what is being sacrificed by all that good and even Godly activity?  Come get energized with a renewed vision on how to reach kids "beyond the walls" of the church!

Fritz T. Moga will be presenting and guiding our conversation. 

Fritz T. Moga Bio
I was blessed to have spent over 18 years in full-time youth ministry in just two churches.  I oversaw all aspects of the Junior High, High School and at times the College ministries.  I love organizing, planning and dreaming about ministry but it’s always the relationships that take center stage!  I believe my spiritual gifts are in leadership, pastoring, teaching and exhortation.  I am now starting my 18th year of working and teaching at William Jessup University!  One of my passions is serving both locally and globally.  I’ve been able to serve in many countries including India, Germany, Honduras, Brazil and others.  My theme Bible verse for ministry is Psalm 71:18 “Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come”.

We want to encourage you to invite other staff and available leaders to join you for the day.   

Following Brad’s time with us Cam Roxburgh and Kent Carlson will invite us to consider participating in ETHOS.   The NAB Ethos Process has been designed to help churches more effectively join God on mission. These modules are designed to help people/churches to be transformed into the image of Christ and participate in God’s mission in their everyday lives.  For more on Ethos click here.

Lunch provided
