Purpose: To enable the support staff of church, denominational, and ministry offices to understand the ministry role to which God has called them; to discover and apply professional methods and attitudes; to appropriately use their creativity and initiative in introducing innovative procedures and technology; and to encourage professional development in ministry and office skills that will impact church and ministry growth.
Why should I attend a Professional Course conference?
To enable you as the support staff in your church or association to understand the ministry role to which God has called you.
To discover and apply professional methods and attitudes
