2017 Georgia Baptist Sunday School Directors Summit

The most influential leader in your church is the Sunday School Director.  They will determine the overall direction of the Sunday School ministry of your church and remember that as the Sunday School goes so goes the church!  The Sunday School is vital to your church and the primary leader is also very crucial.  This is why we are starting something NEW just for Sunday School Directors.

We will conducting the first annual Georgia Baptist Sunday School Directors’ Summit (GBSSDS) on October 27 & 28.  If you are a Sunday School Director and you’re looking for a training event that will really help you, then this one is for you.  For more information go to https://gabaptistgroups.org/training-conferences/georgia-baptist-sunday-school-directors-summit/

This two-day event will help your Sunday School more than anything else available.  The GBSSDS will be highly energetic, intensely focused, quickly moving, and totally devoted to the Sunday School Director.  Through the GBSSDS, you will develop a growing Sunday School focused on its mission and purpose, develop an organization and a plan to enlist leadership that build a growing Sunday School, lead teachers to teach for spiritual transformation, and you will leave with a step-by-step strategy for leading your Sunday School.

The GBSSDS is designed to equip Sunday School Directors to serve effectively in all areas of Sunday School work, deliver practical tools for all aspects of Sunday School work, facilitate opportunities to network with other Sunday School Directors, and build team spirit among the Sunday School Director, minister of education, pastor, and division and department directors.

The host for this great event will be the Heatherwood Baptist Church in Newnan.  Below is the schedule for the GBSSDS
