Session Descriptions


Four Obstacles to a Strong Finish (Acts 20:22-38) – A strong finish is not limping across the finish line, it is accelerating through it. Dr. Dance will unpack four of the top challenges pastors are facing today by comparing recent research with the last conversation Paul had with Timothy in Acts 20.

The Oversight of Yourself (1 Timothy 4:16) – Dr. Dilbeck will explore and apply Paul’s challenge to Timothy in the context of a Pastor’s daily challenges.


Finding More Volunteers – Ron will share from his experience working with large and small churches on how to find and recruit more “workers for the harvest.” 

Resilience in Pastoral Ministry – The Apostle Paul recognized that church ministry brings daily pressures, some of which exceed the challenges of physical torture (2 Cor 1:28). God does not leave His undershepherds equipped to prepare for, live through, and recover from the challenges of church ministry. This session with Dr. Solomon will help you consider God’s wisdom to develop resilience and ward off burnout in the midst of the weighty burdens of leadership in the church.
