ECO/EPC Small Church Summit

Pastors of small churches, we are inviting you to…

Lead in Community

 A ECO/EPC Small Church Summit

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help. Again, if two lie together, they keep warm; but how can one keep warm alone? And though one might prevail against another, two will withstand one. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Those who pastor smaller flocks can feel isolated from other leaders, but we know that the Lord has placed each of us in his body as one of many members. Let’s come together for a time of encouragement and equipping, learning how we can raise up leaders in our churches and experiencing the grace of doing ministry in community.
