Church Office Seminar

Just for YOU!

The Church Office:  Ministry or Madness?  

If you have hosted the workshop, the next step is The Five Star Church Office

Whether you are a part time volunteer in a mid-sized or small church, a full time large church administrative assistant, or the only person in the church office, this one's for you! Written by an experienced church office worker and a pastor's wife, this seminar is a WINNER! The cost of this amazing day will pay for itself many times over.

The most overlooked area of ministry is the church office and its workers. These workers usually work in a vacuum and seldom have an opportunity for professional development. Vessel Ministries has presented this popular "niche" seminar over 40 times in nearly 40 cities.  Administrative assistants, pastors, staff members, and volunteers all benefit from this informative and inspirational day. Most common suggestion from participants: "Make this seminar longer." If you are looking for something to honor, encourage, educate, train, and challenge your pastors and church office workers, this day will do it.

Previously presented in 36 Cities: Anaheim, Annapolis, Atlanta, Boise (2), Charleston, WV, Chicago, Cincinnati, Colorado Springs, Columbus, Dallas, Dayton, Denver (2) , Des Moines, Dover, Honolulu, Houston, Kansas City, Little Rock, Long Beach, Lynchburg, Memphis, Milwaukee, OR, Okla.

Below is only a suggested way that you can make this day possible. Many groups merely pay the presenter a flat fee plus transportation and housing. Then, on their end, they decide what costs work. When approaching funding the day, there are many creative ways that it can come about. Vessel Ministries will work with your group in fashioning a method that is mutually agreeable.
