Clergy and all lay leadership are invited to attend a free training on MissionInsite led by District Strategy Team members Jim Aniol or Dan Zei. Using information from an international data warehouse, MissionInsite gives church leaders insight into their mission field, what the congregation members and neighbors think about, how they feel about church, and what they need from church.

You may bring your laptop or iPad to download information related to your church and community. Register for the trainings ASAP, but no later than a week before the date of the training you plan on attending. Training will be offered at the following location and times:
