2018 Theme: Future-proof Your Church

He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments.
Psalm 78:5-7 ESV

When we fail to invest in the next generation within our churches, we fail to invest in the future of our churches. This year, the Heartland District will be hosting several regional One Day Training Events focused on resourcing, encouraging and inspiring ALL leaders within the church to invest in Future-proofing the church by investing in the next generation.

Each event will feature Heartland District Leaders, Local Church Pastors and NextGen Practitioners in sessions and breakouts meant to strengthen and inspire your pastors, leaders, team members and volunteers. Check the dates below for more information regarding each event and to register to join us!
