Plan now to attend Small Church Leadership Conference

“Developing Spiritual Leaders” will be the theme of the KNCSB Small Church Leadership Conference. It will be held Friday night, Feb. 24, and Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, at Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kan.

This event is aimed at pastors and leaders in churches that have fewer than 150 in worship.

The featured speaker will be Emil Turner, retired executive director of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention. Nate Sapp will be the worship leader. He is worship-team leader for Christian Challenge at Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kan.

The cost is $40 per adult and $75 per couple. This includes one night’s lodging at WCC and two meals. We will also block motel rooms in Salina if you prefer to stay off campus.
