Continuing the theme of the 2012 Annual Conference, this leadership event is centered upon “Health and Wholeness” for people everywhere. Every disciple of Jesus Christ is meant to live and be spiritually, physically, and mentally healthy and whole while carrying on Jesus’ mission and ministry of healing. Workshops offered are for those wanting to learn more about personal spiritual health and wholeness, developing or expanding administrative and healing ministries within the local church, and ways to reach out into the community and world bringing healing and wholeness to wounded and hurting people. The lead speaker for the day is The Rev. Dr. Gerrit Scott Dawson who will offer a plenary teaching time on living a life of blessing God and blessing others.
