Topic: How Do We Measure Success as Pastors, Leaders, & Churches – Seating or Sending?


There are many differing views of what it means for us and our churches to be a success. We will explore a number of them together and then focus on a unique one which we call “Sending vs Seating”.  As part of this, Dave will share with us a challenging and exciting process of Sending that his church uses.


Leader/Speaker: Dave Myers (Pseudonym)


Dave has served as the Global Outreach Pastor in 3 different churches (in Seattle and now in Chicago.) In addition, he has been a mobilization director for a Missions agency and has led more than 75 short term ministry teams. He has a passion for the local church and a passion for seeing Jesus proclaimed among the Unreached. The church where Dave currently serves is pursuing a goal of sending 100 long-term cross cultural workers to the Nations.

Preregistration is required and the cost is $35 which includes a box lunch and a free book (one per church); “Gaining by Losing: Why the Future Belongs to Churches that Send” by J.D. Greear.
