There are more than ten for you to attend this highly impactful Propempo Training event. But we’ll start with the …
Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Attend PIT Stop 2017
9. More effective for church leaders and mission mobilizers than other conferences
It’s true, our PIT Stop 2017 dates are the same as the big Missio Nexus conference. It’s also true that Propempo can’t complete with other Big Kahuna conferences: you won’t hear world renowned speakers and musicians; you’ll not be hobnobbing with big name organizations’ C-level leaders. However, what we ARE going to have is the most effective, most tailored training for those desiring to help local churches become effective and strategic in missions, producing real, well-qualified workers for the “hard places” of the world. If you want to see your local church, or those churches you relate to, become biblically and productively involved in finishing the Great Commission, then this PIT Stop 2017 training is for you. If you are a church leader responsible for missions leadership in your church, if you’re a Missions Pastor or Missions Director, if you’re a mission agency missions mobilizer and find it challenging to relate to and genuinely help local churches, then THIS should be on your calendar. THIS training will provide the framework biblically, ecclesiologically, missiologically, and practically for you to grow into your ministry and effectively lead your church in missions. If you are the mission agency guy, you will learn the tools and perspective to become effective in producing the right recruits for the right reasons through the right means.
8. Cost, revisited
Churches and missions agencies often bring us to their site for leadership training and consultation about their particular issues-du-jour. Quite regularly this develops into multiple visits with personalized design of documents for policy, direction, process, etc. The cost of importing Propempo staff to your place can grow. It’s not bad stewardship per se; the group is quite satisfied with the results.
But, what if you could harvest all the same principles and resources in one intensive training meeting? Not only would it be better stewardship of personnel and time, it would also be better stewardship of money. It simply costs you less to come to this training and take it home with you than to bring a Propempo staff member multiple times to your site, with transportation, food, lodging, honorarium, etc.
How much would you pay to have one 4-semester-hour course at seminary? This intensive training costs much less than that and is rooted in realism, not a theoretical textbook.
7. Compresses your learning curve into days, instead of years
PIT Stop 2017 training? Yes, it is. However, we consistently hear from the church leaders and mobilizers we have trained that it would have taken them five years to amass the knowledge base, wisdom, and experience they receive from Propempo in short fashion. Just read and view some of our testimonials. We’ve scoured available resources and practices to bring you the the best training for local church missions leadership. If you’re a new Missions Pastor/Minister, you really need this training to get a handle on your ministry responsibilities, the principles that drive it, and its scope and practical implementation. PIT Stop 2017 may be the best “first step” of practical Missions Pastor training available anywhere!
