OVERVIEW --- The conference, Staying the Course, will address many important issues confronting the local church in this age of moral and theological relativism. This conference also seeks to explore how local churches can establish leadership practices, ministries, discipleship programs, direction and vision, purpose and mission statements, and church relationships that are founded on God’s Holy Word. Through this conference, we hope to equip leaders and members from the pews with teachings that would moor them to the Scriptures and make their congregations effective in presenting Christ to the world. Join us on May 25–26, 2018 at Cine Adarna, UP Film Institute, Magsaysay Avenue, University of the Philippines–Diliman, Quezon City. Let us hear Dr. Jerry R. Wragg share precious truths from Scripture about what the local church is and how it should operate. --- WHAT ARE THE TOPICS THAT THE CONFERENCE WILL ADDRESS? --- Clarity on the purpose and function of the church Crafting and implementing the church’s vision, plan, and philosophy of ministry The pastor’s pulpit Church leadership and governance Church membership and unity Equipping members for growth and ministry Corporate worship, prayer, and church discipline Evangelism and missions Threats to the church: Pragmatism and Deception --- WHO SHOULD ATTEND? --- Pastors Church elders, deacons, leaders, teachers Ministry leaders and workers Regular churchgoers Founder, Ekklesia Conference, Jupiter, Florida Author - "Exemplary Spiritual Leadership" --- SPEAKER'S PROFILE --- Dr. Jerry R.
