 Thriving Under 300 is a conference specifically designed for pastors and their teams of churches under 300.  More than 90% of all churches are below 250, yet less than 1% of all church conferences focus on helping small churches thrive.  Small churches have unique needs.  Large church conferences will never meet those needs. If your church has 3 to 300 in attendance, this conference is for you!

At “Thriving Under 300” you will:

  • Understanding the difference between a small, medium, and large church
  • The challenging and changing role of the senior pastor
    • Surviving as a pastor
    • What to do when you feel like giving up
  • Incorporating big church principles and systems into small churches
  • Building a team
    • How to manage volunteers
    • How to recruit volunteers
    • How to reward volunteers
    • How to refresh volunteers
  • Living with your family and the ministry at the same time
    • What to do during challenging times
    • What happens when people talk negatively about your spouse
    • How to raise your kids in a small church
    • Time off, time with the family 
  • Media for a small church
    • Live streaming
    • Sound systems
    • Lighting systems
