Professional Association of United Methodist Church Secretaries Spring Workshop
Tuesday, April 19, 2016 - 8:30am to 4:30pm
Sponsored by the Ohio Chapter Professional Association of Church Secretaries

Find out how to effectively communicate faith in today’s society and then take a moment to discover if you are spiritually tired, or ready to be fired up at the 2016 Spring Workshop!


Communicating Faith in the 21st Century

Craig Catlett is the Training and Development Specialist at United Methodist Communications. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Religion and a Master’s Degree in Communication. In addition to his education, Mr. Catlett has a background in ministry and teaching communication in multiple formats. With people living a big part of their lives online, what does this transition to an online world mean for the church? Mr. Catlett will help us learn how to effectively communicate in today’s online society.


Are You Spiritually Tired Out, or Fired Up?

Rev. Vernagaye Sullivan, Pastor at Wayne United Methodist Church in West Ohio, has served the United Methodist Church for many years not only as a pastor, but also as a missionary doing child welfare work, and an Assistant to the Superintendent in the Shawnee Valley District where she trained, worked with and assigned part-time pastors in small membership churches. Rev. Sullivan will be leading us in an experiential training session focusing on whether we are “Spiritually Tired Out, or Fired Up?”
