Grace to You.
The Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association is personally inviting churches, friends, neighbors and you to the “EMPOWER” Leadership Associational Sunday School Training Event on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
The “EMPOWER” Training Conference will be held at the Neighborhood Church of Long Beach 3435 San Anseline Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90808. The cost is only $25.00 per person, which includes continental breakfast, and a delicious catered lunch, plus resources provided in each conference.
We will begin with RAISING THE PRAISE TOGETHER because we want your “EMPOWER” to be motivational as well as empowering. We want you to leave not only knowing something about church ministry/leadership, but fired up to make your worship experience a more vibrant vehicle for God to reach people.
Below is a list of some of our “EMPOWER” Conference Training Conferences:
