First Ever Nehemiah Summit

This week in beautiful Woodbury, Minnesota, the Church Development Team held its first national church development gathering! The Nehemiah Summit was a three-day gathering for pastors, local church leaders and parishioners to come together for a time of refreshment, prayer, and training from some of the nation’s best practitioners in the area of church development and revitalization.

This year, our focus was Building Strong Relationships with an emphasis on disciple making. Our keynote speaker was Dr. Ken Sande, founder of Peacemaker Ministries and Relational Wisdom 360. Ken’s new ministry is about discerning emotions, interests and abilities in yourself and others, interpreting these according to God’s Word so that one can manage responses and build strong relationships. RW360 not only teaches biblical peacemaking but shows pastors and churches how to avoid conflict in the first place!

Nearly 50 pastors and church leaders attended and were richly blessed by speakers and worship. Pray for the attendees, that they return home with a refreshed focus on relational wisdom. Make plans to join us in Orlando in April 2024.
