      2019 Pastoral Training Event – Bismarck

      Dear Northern Plains District Pastors & Church Leaders: As chair of the District Board of Ministerial Standing, I’m inviting our pastors and church leaders to a pastoral training event on Monday October 21st at Grace Point in Bismarck and Tuesday October 22nd at Salem EFC in Moorhead. The training will begin at 10:00am CST and end at 2:00pm CST. Both sessions are the same so that you can choose the one that works better for you date or location wise. Because in addition to encouraging and helping our pastors become licensed in the EFCA, we also see the role as a board to provide training opportunities for our church leaders.  Last fall Fritz Dale, director of leadership formation and prayer mobilization for the EFCA, helped us think through leadership development. We had over forty leaders from our district take part and the response was overwhelmingly positive to continuing to provide these training opportunities.  When we started this annual training four years ago, our first speaker was Greg Strand, executive director of theology and credentialing for the EFCA. At that first training session he helped us think through some current issues facing the church, including understanding the gospel and a biblical view of gender and sexuality. And his talk was so well-received that we have asked him to join us again this year in order to address further current issues that are pressing for the church today.  Before moving into his current role in 2002, Greg served as senior pastor of Trinity Evangelical Free Church in Minot, ND from 1995-2002. In addition he has many other connections to our district. Greg is a graduate of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and serves on the Board of Ministerial Standing and Spiritual Heritage committees. He is married to Karen and they have three children, one of whom calls her father “Walking Bible”. He enjoys running, biking and is a sports enthusiast.  We will have refreshments in the morning and lunch is included. The registration rate is $30 a person. There are two ways to register:  First by credit card online by October 14th with added credit card processing convenience fee of $3.46.  Second, register online by October 1st and mail a check for $30 to the NPD at 2900 E. Broadway Ave Suite 6A, Bismarck, ND 58501. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 701-315-0331 or jeffhigbie@hotmail.com.  By God’s Grace, Jeff Higbie
