Effective Practices for innovative church councils

EPIC is an annual synod event that takes place in March, shortly after many congregational annual meetings and the election of new council officers.  This event is designed specifically to help equip congregation councils as they fulfill their call to various leadership roles in congregations.  

Here you will find resources, including handouts, powerpoint presentations, video resources, online resources, etc. which were shared during EPIC workshops.  

EPIC 2021

EPIC will be ALL NEW this year!  

While we typically meet in person for this council training event, this year we will be offering all workshops ONLINE!  These 15 pre-recorded webinars will be available January 31, and councils/church leadership groups will be invited to view them during council meetings, leadership retreats, small groups, etc.  

We hope these will be helpful for you as you continue to lead in your congregations!  

More detailed information can be found HERE.
