Invite From Your District Superintendent

We are looking forward to our FALL District Conference with great anticipation.  Our guest speaker, Karl Vaters comes with a message of encouragement to pastors.  He is known to be a voice for church growth in North America.  He is the author of “The Grasshopper Myth” and a noted speaker in many conference settings. 

We are on a quest to REGENERATE CHURCHES!  This conference is designed to inspire credential holders to focus on the message of Christ and community!  Ministry demands can take their toll; so, this conference is designed to provide encouragement, aid in sharpening our skills, and lead us into a deeper relationship with God.  We pray that we will leave this conference passionate about sharing Christ and seeing our communities reached with the Gospel. 

Our goal is to inspire every leader to go home ready to ignite a fire in the hearts of every PAOC believer and be committed to building healthy churches where people are saved, baptized in water and the Spirit and involved in discipleship.  Jesus did not say just “go and make a friend” but He declared “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”  We are committed to REGENERATING CHURCHES and changing whole communities for the Lord.
