The theme this spring is using the ministry resources our denomination offers to help equip the local church. This is an opportunity to taste if you will these 4 ministries that will help the local church in its mission to reach their congregation and their communities.  Each one of these ministries will present what they do and how they can help local churches.  It will include regular Bent Tree fare such as testimonials and devotions.  My hope is that those present will latch onto one or more of these ministries and then have them come to their church and help them map out a strategy for women’s ministry, esl, disability or prison ministry.  This is a unique opportunity for you and those in your church to get time with the leaders of these ministries and dream together how you might better reach your church and your communities.
