The purpose of this workshop is to support the Conference Core Values and one of our Five Areas of Focus: Developing principled Christian leaders for the church and the world.
The goals of this workshop are not limited to but expect that attendees will better be able to use the Conference website to find forms and various documents they need to better serve their appointment(s). Also to be better able to use the church and clergy dashboards and address any questions related to the use of the conference website.  Attendees will also be able to address any issues related to the use of technology in the church to help them offer worship and ministry to those more technologically inclined. Lastly, we will address the entry of the year-end statistical reports into EZRA and address issues people might have using this tool. As part of John Wilson’s presentation we will learn how to use Mission Insight the conference demographic tool. This tool is valuable in helping clergy and their church boards and ministry teams to direct ministry properly based on the demographics in the areas where they serve the church.
