Church relocation seminar set Aug. 26


Is your church considering relocating? Does your church plan major renovations? Perhaps a building addition?

On Aug. 26, "A Day of Church Relocation" will be offered at Piedmont-First for pastors of congregations pondering such changes.

This event is sponsored by Congregational Development and the Discipleship Ministries Team of the Annual Conference Council (ACC).

Among topics to be addressed that day by various experts: demographics, budget and debt, capital campaign, Book of Discipline requirements, psychology of the pastor, and psychology of the congregation. A builder and architect will speak to "What would I want my pastor to know before starting this process?"

"This event is designed for pastors of congregations seeking to relocate their churches to a new facility. It also will be helpful for those pastors whose churches will be undergoing major renovations or additions," said Sam Powers, an ACC co-chairman and pastor at Piedmont.

For more information, contact Rev. Powers,,  405-373-2298.
