Summer conference: Ruth & Naomi

5 Jun 2019

All GB leaders are invited to GB's summer conference - which will include a special session looking at what we can learn from the Bible story of Ruth & Naomi.

The conference is for all GB's children and youth leaders and will take place on Saturday 6 July 2019 at Cliff College, in Derbyshire.

GB’s Discipleship & Evangelism Enabler Charlotte Hendy will be guiding us through the Bible story of Ruth and Naomi. GB’s intergenerational approach is one of its great strengths, and we believe that no matter what your age you can encounter God and lead other people to encounter God too. With a focus on intergenerational leadership and discipleship, this session will reflect on how – whether you’re a Ruth or a Naomi – we can encourage, disciple and support one another.

Leaders will also enjoy fellowship, worship, get to hear encouraging news, be equipped to take what they hear back home and much, much more.

The day's programme, downloadable below, will be as follows:

9.45am Arrivals
Start your day with coffee/tea, a biscuit and time to chat.

An agenda will be sent separately to the local area delegates.
