Life Changers Ministries International held its Church Development Strategies Conference 2023 under the theme “Positioning for Possibilities and Progress” after a 3 year hiatus due to the pandemic. The purpose of this conference was to provide spirit-led, cutting edge strategies and systems to aid churches and church leaders in advancing the kingdom of God.
The Opening Night and Worship Experience was held on Friday, May 19th where Bishop Valentino Williams spoke from the message “The Fields are White and Ready to Harvest”. He reminded the Pastors, Ministry leaders and attendees at large that the primary function of every church is to depopulate hell and populate the kingdom of God.
The following day the Conference continued with general and break-out sessions from 10am – 4pm. Speakers included Conference host and senior pastor, Bishop Valentino Williams; Pastor Dr. Kenva Cleopatra Willimas; and Apostle Clifford Smith of Southside Christian Ministries. The general sessions covered topics ranging from “Positioning your Church for Possibilities and Progress through Dynamic Vision Runners”; “Positioning Leadership Teams for Possibilities and Progress”; and “The Christian Church; From Crisis to Unlimited Possibilities”.
Break out sessions focused on specific areas of church ministry such as: Administration; Evangelism; Next Generation; Music & Fine Arts; Hospitality; Media & Technology; and Intercessory Ministry, with special sessions specifically for pastors. Overall, the conference had representation from over 20 churches and more than 100 registrants including Family Island ministers.
Berea Theological University teamed up with Life Changers Ministries to offer five scholarship opportunities to five conference attendees. At the end of the day, The Senior Pastor of the churches with the most registrants were presented with the scholarships to choose who from their ministry would receive the blessing.
