Preaching from the Center
October 24 – 27
Albuquerque, NM

This year, Preaching from the Center is held in conjunction with Blessed to be a Blessing, the 40th Anniversary Convocation of the Christian Educator’s Fellowship of the United Methodist Church.

While each of the two events is self-contained, those who register for either Preaching from the Center or the Christian Educator’s Conference may attend sessions in the other event. Parts of both events, like Bible Study, worship, fellowship, meals, and evening celebrations will take place together. This is a unique opportunity for church leaders in pastoral ministry and Christian education to come together for training, continuing education, inspiration and fellowship.

Leadership Institute 2008

Church of the Resurrection
October 2-3, 2008

Leadership—it’s vital to any church that seeks to serve faithfully in building God’s Kingdom.  Leadership in a world of constant change requires a steady flow of new ideas built on solid principles. In today’s world, leadership is defined by the imperative to innovate, improve, change–or die!

Now in its 10th year, the Leadership Institute is a powerful source of creative ideas, hope, and renewal for mainline church leaders from around the country.  In just 18 years, The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection has grown to serve more than 15,000 members and continues to be one of the fastest-growing churches in the United States.  Every fall, the Leadership Institute defines leadership by sharing new ministry concepts that are practical, proven and applicable to ministry settings of all sizes—based on Resurrection’s own ministry work and innovations during the previous year.  Resurrection’s innovative staff members share what’s working, pitfalls to avoid, and specific, practical ideas for how you can apply these ideas in your own ministry.
