LeaderFest Earlybird Deadline Is Tuesday!

Shenango Presbytery’s Annual LeaderFest
Saturday, January 14, 2017
8:30 am-1:30 pm
Westminster College and New Wilmington Presbyterian Church

All leaders in the church are welcome to join us as we hear keynoter Byron Borger speak to us about “Seeking the Peace of the City (or Small Town): Living in Hope with God’s Heart for Western Pennsylvania”.

Byron Borger, along with his wife, Beth, own and operate Hearts & Minds, an independent Christian bookstore in Dallastown, PA, which they have run for 33 years.  Before opening the bookstore, they worked in campus ministry for the Coalition for Christian Outreach in McKeesport and Pittsburgh, and he served as associate director of the Thomas Merton Center in Pittsburgh.  Byron graduated from IUP with an MA in speech pathology in 1976 and later earned a Masters in Higher Education from Geneva College. He was recently awarded an honorary doctorate from Geneva College.

All relevant information, including costs, can be found in our brochure.


A Few Notes on Registration:

* Pay online! Individuals and Groups may now pay their registration fees online using the same form!  Individuals must use the coupon code “earlybird” to receive their discount (expires 1-3-2017).  Want to pay online for 2 regular registrations and 1 young leader?  It’s easy…just enter the numbers in the “pay online” section and click the buttons beside each choice to add multiple types of registrations to your shopping cart!

* Group discount! Churches may send as many leaders as they’d like for only $100 (but all must be registered by January 3…it will be $20 per person after that).  If you are registering a group from your church, simply upload a file (ex. Excel Spreadsheet) with a list each individual’s registration information, and mail a check to the office or select “Church Registration” to pay online before the discount deadline.  After January 3rd, simply enter the number of individuals under the “Regular Registration” option to pay for the group online.

* Young leaders! Once again, we are encouraging churches to send young leaders (ages 14-22) to LeaderFest. Cost is only $5/person and there will be a special workshop geared toward these individuals.
