Leaders’ Training Days

Engaging Without Compromise

A training day for all serving church elders, deacons, pastors and trainee pastors.

Being a leader of a church is a big responsibility. We are called to hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, to care for the church and to live a life above reproach. We are aware of our own weakness, but are also confident that God has given us everything we need for this great task. At the conference there will be faithful teaching through preaching sessions and seminars. You will also be given the opportunity to explore how a Biblical leader of a church should respond to some of the challenges we face today. We warmly invite you to join us at the Church leaders training day. It will be a day of biblical training, honest Christian advice and warm fellowship.

Speakers include – Tim Gill (Newtown), Robert Thomas (Llandrindod), Stuart Olyott (Deeside), Phil Hill (Swansea), Owen Blackwood (Maesteg), Peter Campbell (Penrhyndeudraeth), Steff Job (Bangor), Jeremy Bailey (Port Talbot), Colin Berg (Little Mill – Gwent), John Woolley (Cardiff), Ben Fiddian (Bangor), Paul Whiteley (Penyrheol), Peter Milsom (Newport), Sulwyn Jones (Bridgend), Phil Jenkins (Highfields, Cardiff), Clive Coleclough (Llay), Philip Eveson (Wrexham), Mark Barnes (Clydach),  Mark Thomas (Wrexham), Stephen Clark (Bridgend), David Ollerton (Waleswide), Graham John (Swansea).
