Has anyone been to or heard about LifeServe?

I got a suggestion to look into the LifeServe National Conference, and I'm wondering if anyone has heard about or attended the conference and/or the accompanying Equipping Institute (held concurrently with the conference.)

The promotional information says that this conference is for pastors and other church workers who: recruit, train, and place volunteers; see themselves as serving their church by serving others; want God to use their church to make a life-changing difference in their community, etc.

 

Any insight, recommendations, or helpful input?

Thanks!

Rebecca,

LifeServe is meeting the need that most church leaders have....moving from "doing" to "equipping".  It's a conference that teaches, "no one man bands" allowed.  After being training by my denomination, and spending 25 years in church ministry, I had to learn the hard way that our call as leaders is to equip the saints.  LifeServe gives you the tools, motvation, and inspiration to make that happen.

 

Hope to see you there...

Full disclosure up front: I'm on the LifeServe planning team.  But I still think my comment will help.  This is the best conference out there on church volunteer issues.  I firmly believe that real ministry happens when God's people jump in and allow themselves to serve where they fit best.  LifeServe helps leaders catch that vision and implement in their churches.  There's reason after reason why this is biblical, but I honestly get most excited by the amazing stories I hear about "regular" people making ministry happen.  You gotta go.  You won't regret it!

I have had the joy of working with the folks from Church Volunteer Central for several years now and am always blessed by their commitment to not only promoting equipping values, but to living them out through the LifeServe conference and through the TeamCVC regional networks. Bottom line, you need to come to this year's event. Better yet, bring a team from your church. Take full advantage of this unique conference that will equip you to equip the saints for service! The tools you will take away with you will make all the difference in the spiritual formation of your volunteers and the impact your church can have in your community. And, by the way, you will have lots of fun in the learning!
