Semper Informanda: Prolegomenon


Learning From Leaders

This Friday evening and Saturday morning, RTS Orlando is co-hosting a leadership conference with Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. The idea for the conference came about last year when one of our students asked if I would be willing to participate in a leadership conference at his home church here in Oviedo. He knew that I have a desire to train leaders that represent North America, and felt that this would be a good opportunity. After meeting with their leaders, we decided to co-host a conference. It has been a rewarding endeavor as I have made new friends and seen God bring this together. I am excited about the speakers and workshop leaders who will be participating.

Though this is a busy time of the semester, I encourage you to attend. Here is why:

First, I am fully convinced this will be a resource for you both now and in future ministry. The workshops are designed to be practical and interactive. You definitely don’t want to miss Friday night as Dr. Richard Pratt of Third Millennium Ministries will be our keynote speaker. In addition the Antioch Mass Choir will also be performing. In fact, feel free to just come on Friday night!

Second, this is a chance for the RTS community to step outside its bubble and rub shoulders with our neighbors. Antioch Missionary Baptist is a large and growing church that knew very little about RTS Orlando though we are less than two miles apart! Your participation will add to our hospitality and help us build a lasting relationship with this strategic church. Selfishly, your presence will help me fulfill my goal of seeing new leaders come to RTS Orlando.

I hope you can make it! Please contact me if you have any questions and don’t let the cost keep you from coming! You can learn more about the conference and register here: www.rts.edu/orlando/leadersconference
