Church Management Conferences to Round Out Your Year

Stay on top of the latest developments and trends, interact with the experts, and learn something new.

Last Reviewed: April 11, 2024

These church management conferences are training and education to help build effective church leadership skills.

The commitment to continually learn helps ensure pastors, staff members, board members, and volunteers stay current on key developments and trends—an even greater priority amid ever-deepening political divisions and the stresses and strains of adapting to a post-pandemic world.

But choose wisely. Not all conferences are created equal and many demand significant investments of both time and money.

And not only that, unscrupulous individuals target churches by purporting to provide tax and law information that is either erroneous, inaccurate, or misleading.

Let us help take some of the guesswork out of it by recommending these conferences to round out your year, all involving individuals and organizations you can trust to provide accurate information and whose ministry-minded focus will serve you well.
