About this event

Today, 9 out of 10 churches worldwide are led by leaders who have not received adequate ministry training. That's 90 out of 100 churches! 900 out of 1,000! This is a staggering need and a tremendous opportunity.

Without adequately trained leaders, churches are open to heresies and leadership that conforms to culture, not to Christ. With adequate training, leaders are more prepared to flourish and to help their churches do the same. Overseas Council exists to meet this global leadership challenge. Join us as we discuss this urgent need and the vision to see a flourishing church, led by well-equipped local leaders, serving every city and neighborhood of the world!

This event is hosted by Norm Miller, Interstate Batteries Chairman. Our special guest speaker will be Elizabeth Sendek, President of the Biblical Seminary of Colombia.

As our guest, you will have free access to tour Museum of the Bible at your discretion from 10am to 5pm on Friday, September 17, 2021. View Museum of the Bible's website HERE.
