Being Vital Today, an Expanding Your Ministry Toolbox course, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, May 4, on Zoom.

We live in a new post-Christendom world in which the church is no longer the center of our society. This new world is unlike any world the church has ever existed in before. Thus, we need to be ready to answer a new set of questions; we cannot assume our new world understands what we do anymore. This course will explore the “7 Marks of Vital Congregations” that the Office of Vital Congregations of the Presbyterian Mission Agency has identified to help us live more fully as disciples of Christ and to identify talking points to share with those who are seeking to believe.

This course will be taught by Brian Coulter, Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Fort Worth, TX, and a consultant with the Presbyterian Mission Agency Office of Theology, Formation, and Evangelism.

The cost per person is $40.  The registration deadline is Monday, April 29, and the link to this course will be shared on Thursday, May 2.
