Connecticut District Resource Academy
Presents: Big or Small – Redefining Ministry
A time apart with author Karl Vaters
Our District is creating a new opportunity for our clergy and church leadership to be resourced for effective ministry and engage in conversations/activities designed to help support our congregations in their effort to be effective disciple makers. These are called CT District Days. All church leaders are welcome to come for a time of activities and dialog around what it means to be a small church and how to leverage the uniqueness of your congregation to help it thrive no matter the size or context.
