The ISC Conference Gatherings Team and staff have decided, based on the health and safety of our attendees and volunteers of the host church, to go virtual on Zoom for Day of Discipleship 2022.
The information is valuable for church “leaders” and “followers”, i.e. for everyone in the church to learn about conference-wide initiatives in 2022, roles and responsibilities of officers/leaders, good decision-making skills, honest/healthy communications, and a new ministry opportunity. Here is the plan for the day.
Town Hall Meeting on Conference Wide Initiatives –
  1.  An opportunity to hear how the WISE committee is doing
  2. How the DuBois 6.0 program is coming along
  3. How some of our other ministries are doing.
