Make your budget a reflection of your ministry and values--Register today for the 2021 Vibrant Church Conference courses!

Register today for the 2021 Vibrant Church Conference courses!

Join us for the Vibrant Church Conference, a Southern Ohio Synod initiative to provide valuable training on topics currently impacting leaders and congregations.  Like our 2020 course offerings, these new courses are online and are comprised of pre-recorded video sessions and Saturday morning Zoom forums to allow for questions, insights and discussion.  A link to the pre-recorded videos will arrive in your email about a week prior to the scheduled Saturday discussion forums. The links will also be available, the week of the session, in the topic sections of the Vibrant Church Conference web page for easy retrieval…We know how cluttered email can get!

Check out our next five course offerings below and register today! You are encouraged to safely watch them as group or gather online and share your thoughts with others in your congregation prior to or after the workshops.  Teamwork is critical to the success of any organization, especially during times of change. The more people you have on the same page, the better the buy in and the more quickly and effectively your church can pivot to meet the ever-changing ministry environment—now and beyond.
