Event Description

If you're looking for a jump start for your ministry, attending a One-Day Workshop may be just the thing you need. We'll take one specific topic and spend several hours unpacking key things to consider as you get started or continue to improve your existing ministry.


What is it?

  • A day long on-site session at the Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, led by Danny Franks, Connections Pastor.
  • A seminar format that will cover one of the following topics:
    • Guest services: what it is, why your church needs it, and how the gospel speaks to the way we do it.
    • Volunteer culture. Finding, training, and keeping those who serve on the weekend.
  • Workshops are typically scheduled on a weekday from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.


Who should come?

  • Anyone who considers connections ministry part of their job description. One-Day Workshops are open to full-time or part-time staff members, ministry interns, and key volunteers.
  • Teams are welcome. One-Days are priced affordably, so load up the van and bring multiple members of your staff or volunteer teams.
  • Anyone who wants to connect. Workshops target a mid-sized audience of 25 or more participants.


What do I get?

  • Workshops are $99 per person, and include...
  • ...specific training in particular areas, helping you to focus on where you are and where you need to be.
  • ...new friendships from churches of all shapes and sizes.
  • ...practical tools and resources to help you get started.
  • ...meals and snacks throughout the day.


What others are saying:

  • The One-Day Workshop was a well planned, informative look at the importance of guest services and how it can be scalable for any church. Learning the why and what of creating a hospitality culture was well worth the 11 hour drive! Hats off to the Summit Church for their accessibility, transparency and fun! - Bev Bonner, Director of Assimilation, Family Church, West Palm Beach, FL
  • We had four from our church attend the One-Day Workshop. We all left greatly encouraged and better educated! I am under the personal conviction this conference will breathe fresh air into our church and our people! I highly encourage pastors and lay leaders to attend this workshop...you and your church will be blessed! - Chip Hannah, Lead Pastor, Peace Baptist Church, Whiteville, NC​
  • The Connections One-Day Guest Services workshop was a team endeavor. To be able to bring pastors, staff and volunteers to an intimate event has set up our team for success. The Workshop certainly conveys the "what and how," but more importantly conveys the "why?" behind an effective Guest Services mindset and execution. I've never been to an event that helped shape our thinking framework and equipped us with vision like this one has. It was more than worthwhile investment for our team to be a part! - Dr. Matthew Robinson, Connections Pastor, First Baptist Church, Orlando, FL
