Cross
Training, communication/tech grants and coaching available to help your local church

Find out how you can get a communications grant and connect with social media learning groups during Bishop Palmer’s first Leadership Clinic set for March 4.

Bishop Palmer’s Leadership Clinics offer live webcasts to access leadership insights from proven influencers around the world. Regardless of your title or position, you will be challenged, encouraged, and inspired as we navigate church leadership through this pandemic. We kick off the clinics on March 4, 10a-noon, with author, speaker, and Facebook executive, Nona Jones.

An expert in using social technology to share the Gospel, Nona partners with churches to help them fulfill the Great Commission through digital impact. Because 2020 moved many of our discipleship paths online, this clinic will prepare you to grow in online leadership and discipleship skills for kingdom influence. After Nona’s presentation, be prepared with your questions for the Live Q&A with Bishop and Nona.

During this Clinic, we will launch Communication Grants to begin or enhance your church’s communication and social media ministry. Participation in the Clinic will make your church eligible to receive a grant of up to $1,000. Grants will be awarded first-come, first-served, with an application deadline of March 18. “We are excited to offer communication support and resources for our churches through this current season of ministry,” says Kay Panovec, Director of Communications. To that end, in addition to these grants, the conference will offer FREE cohorts with additional training and personalized coaching for those who want to maximize their church communications. Learn more about the cohorts during the March 4 Clinic. 

Cokesbury and Amplify will serve as our resource partners for Bishop Palmer’s Leadership Clinics. Visit Cokesbury to find Nona Jones’ new book, From Social Media to Social Ministry, as well as a variety of leadership books and other resources for your ministry.
