LeaderFest Is Coming!

The Christian Education Committee is excited to have Dr. N. Graham Standish as the Keynote speaker at the 2008 LeaderFest. Dr. Standish is the pastor of Calvin Presbyterian Church in Zelienople and has written several powerful books, among them the theme of this year’s LeaderFest, Becoming the Blessed Church. Dr. Standish was the speaker at the 2006 Synod meeting at Davis and Elkins College and those who heard him were eager to have him share his message with folks in our Presbytery.

The C.E. committee is doing something different this year. They have purchased five copies of Becoming the Blessed Church to give to the first five churches that have the most “Early Bird” registrations to LeaderFest. To be eligible, registrations must be sent to the Presbytery Office by Monday, January 7, 2008. They have also asked Cokesbury to have copies of Becoming the Blessed Church available for purchase for the “late birds” who don’t qualify for this prize. Look for registration information in the December edition of Shenango SHOWCASE.

In order to provide enough time for worship, keynote speaker, seminars, and break times, the Christian Education committee has decided to change the starting time to 8:00 AM. Please note this time change in your church’s LeaderFest publicity.
