WFX, Worship Facilities Conference and Expo, announces its continued partnership with XPastor.org, an organization dedicated to providing business and growth management training for church leaders. For the third year Pastors X-Forum workshops will be held during WFX this time on November 5, 2008 during WFX Houston. Building on the success of the previous Pastors X-Forum events, WFX and XPastor.org will again provide senior and executive pastors with the education, peer-to-peer interaction and tools needed to prepare themselves and their churches for the multi-faceted building process.
Pastors X-Forum is specifically designed for pastors dealing with church design and construction, fundraising and financing, re-branding and is appropriate for churches of all sizes. "XPastor.org is elated with its continued partnership with WFX for a third Pastors X-Forum," says Dr. David Fletcher, founder of XPastor.org and chairperson of Pastors X-Forum. "The demand for the important information of this nature is on the rise, and partnering with WFX is the ideal opportunity to make it available."
Through Dr. Fletcher’s classic “church-based case study method,” case-study presentations and small and large-group discussions, Pastors X-Forum will present concepts and strategies to successfully lead a church through the growth process. Attendees will take away valuable knowledge on the following topics:
Spiritual DNA: Spiritual Leadership for A New Building
Designing the Dream: Interaction with Jackson Galloway
Funding the Dream: Working with Bankers and Fundraisers
Building the Dream: Working with a Contractor
Moving Into A New Building
