ADMIN TRAININGS | JUNE 2019

EUgene, 6-18 | Bend, 6-19 | Portland, 6-25 | Medford, 6-27

The North Pacific District hosted 4 Admin Trainings to discuss a variety of topics and resources related to church administration and the unique role of administrators, bookkeepers and Executive Pastors within the local church. This 1-day training event covered information regarding a variety of administrative functions such as receiving donations, property and leases, investments, bookkeeping, church councils, pastoral licensing and so much more! We also had the opportunity to have Cindy Towne join us to discuss these topics. Cindy currently serves as the National Administrative Specialist for the Foursquare Church and is an invaluable resource to us. It was a great time of connection and allowed for administrative leaders throughout the district to stay up to date on the administrative challenges of the local church.
