June 12 - 9:00 AM - Walk in Wisdom Workshops    $

Come early for some powerful four-hour education offerings covering subjects that are pertinent to every mission and like ministry operating today.
     
  The Perpetual Prayer Journey of a Godly Leader
    When you’re preparing to take the next major step in your ministry, you want to take that step with God. Don’t allow spiritual strongholds or a sluggish prayer life to derail the best that God has for you and your mission. Robert Loggins, AGRM’s minister-at-large and author of a number of books on holiness, discipleship, and prayer, will lead you on an interactive prayer journey to begin to shed the shackles that inhibit spiritual growth and pave the way for wise, dynamic, godly leadership.
     
  Biblical Diversity for Those Tired of Hearing About It
    The concept of diversity has become divisive in society today. But diversity, as God created it, can be a beautiful thing that will encourage your ministry to flourish when it’s properly understood and activated. Learn how to drive change at your mission that will increase engagement, unleash the potential of your team, and leave no doubt where you stand. This workshop—presented in an unthreatening, enjoyable way—will foster real understanding of diversity and empower you to confidently cross cultural and racial boundaries with clients, guests, and team members.
     
  Start-Up Fundraising for Small Missions and Ministries
    Are you tired of development theory or ideas that work only for ministries with large budgets and expansive teams? This fast-paced workshop will get you started with no budget and no development staff, using practical ideas, a proven action plan, and tools you can take back and put to work immediately.You’ll be better equipped to recruit and mobilize your board, sharpen your message, lead campaigns, win grants, attract major donors, and so much more!
     
  Changing a City through Purposeful Collaboration
    Collaboration is the key to seeing real progress in a city. The challenges we face today will overwhelm the lone rangers. But meaningful partnerships can fuel change, excite your community, and inspire a movement. This session features a case study of New York’s Rescue Alliance, a partnership of six ministries (including two AGRM-member missions) that have combined forces with 50 affiliate organizations to make a major difference in North America’s largest city. It can happen in your city too!
