“Abide in Me” Theme for 2019 Leadership Training School
“Abide in Me” is the theme of our 2019 Regional Leadership Training School. It will be held February 23, 2019! This popular annual event will offer education, worship, fellowship, and renewal for those in ministry in Oklahoma congregations.
DOC General Minister & President
Our preacher for the day is Rev. Teresa “Terri” Hord Owens, the General Minister and President of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). She will speak on the theme “Abide in Me”, based upon John 15:4-5.
4 Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.
Topics: Justice • Disciples Roots • Inclusivity
There will be three opportunities for workshops, with participants choosing from the topics of justice, Disciples roots, and inclusivity. Presenters are from local, regional, and general church ministry organizations, providing a full and vibrant day of learning options.
