School of Congregational Development 2008

"Christian leaders attending the 2008 United Methodist School of Congregational Development were urged to live and act like Jesus Christ as they seek to transform lives by expanding and revitalizing the church.

The July 31 - August 5, 2008 School of Congregational Development sponsored by the United Methodist boards of Global Ministries and Discipleship brought together 300 people in Orlando, FL and 150 people in Grand Rapids, MI. The two sites were linked for several plenary addresses and services of worship throughout the six-day event via satellite telecast.

The School for Congregational Development trains new church pastors and includes educational tracks for bishops, district superintendents, conference staff, pastors and church teams interested in starting new churches and revitalizing existing congregations in The United Methodist Church."
