We have some exciting things planned for the NINES this year! First of all, mark your calendars for Thursday, October 25. You’ll want to schedule that day for you and your staff to join us. This year’s theme is “Too Hot to Handle”. We’re going to look at topics that many church leaders deal with every day… yet few church leaders talk about openly. We have identified some of these topics already, but need your help. Take a moment to look over the list and ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ the topics you’d like to hear discussed. Or… add your own!

We’re like little kidswith our arms wrapped around our “stuff” saying, “Mine!” But it’s aboutmuch more than stuff isn’t it? The more responsibility, or “power” that weobtain as a leader… the more we try to protect it. The more perks weget…the more we want more or at least what we have.
