FENTON, MI – This year’s Church Equipping Conference was a huge success with more than 400 participants experiencing outstanding keynote speakers, Dr. Danny Akin and Dr. Kevin Smith, as well as 45 breakout sessions. CEC offered something for everyone with the goal of providing education and encouragement.
Associate Pastor of The Gathering Church in Windsor, Ontario, CA, Phil Siebenmorgenhad says, “This was my first time at the CEC. It was an inspiring day and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to go. I particularly enjoyed the main session speakers and the breakout session on honing preaching skills by Kevin Smith. I appreciated the affordability of the conference but was most impressed by the quality of it. Everything was great and I am excited about attending next year! I just had a fantastic time! It was exceptionally well done and a blessing from the Lord to be able to attend. Our staff is wondering if any of the details about the 2017 CEC are available yet or when they might be? We would love to bring as many people from our church as possible to take advantage of this conference.”
Dr. Tim Patterson, Executive Director of the BSCM shared, “In my ministry as a pastor and in denominational work over the past 40 plus years, I have attended hundreds of conferences. The 2016 Michigan Church Equipping Conference is without a doubt one of the best and most helpful I have had the privilege to experience. All of the men and women who lead our sessions were extremely knowledgable and great practitioners in their fields.”
If you missed this year’s conference you missed a great time. Make plans now to bring your church leaders and experience the blessings for yourself and your church. Details of the 2017 CEC will be published in the near future.
