Announcing Pipeline 2017: Succession at Every Level
ANNOUNCING PIPELINE 2017 SUCCESSION AT EVERY LEVEL
Pastors overwhelmingly agree that developing leaders is crucial to the success of their ministries. But did you know that less than 30% of pastors actually have a plan in place to develop their staff? And only 1 in 4 churches require leaders and volunteers to attend training?
There's a big need among churches: the need to develop leaders. With this in mind, we set out to create a conference that would help churches practice leadership development rather than leadership placement. In 2016, we introduced the Pipeline conference to meet this need.
