Don't miss the Pastor's Roundtable - October 29th, 2014 - Register Today

If you are a Senior Pastor, Lead Pastor, Campus Pastor, or Associate Pastor, I'd love for you to join me on October 29th for The Pastor's Roundtable in the Metropolitan Area. Being in ministry for over 25 years, I have learned some valuable lessons about leadership, balancing ministry and family, church planting, staffing, sermon preparation, and more. I'd like to personally share insight that has helped me become a better leader. We started Zion Church in February of 2000 with a Bible study of 25 attendees. Today, it has been a blessing that Zion Church reaches over 5,000 attendees weekly across 3 Campuses. Participation is limited to 12 attendees. This allows for an intimate setting where each Pastor's specific needs, questions, and challenges can be addressed. Spouses (clergy and non-clergy) are also welcome to attend.

The cost for each Participant is $100 and it will take place Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 from 9am - 12pm. We will meet at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden's Ministry Center located at 3600 Brightseat Road; Landover, MD, 20785. The registration cost is non-refundable, but is transferable (ie. if you are unable to attend, you may transfer your spot at the Roundtable to another Leader.) Remember, space is limited, so don't delay registering. I hope to see you there.

Pastor's Roundtable: What They're Saying (Video)

The vision of The Pastor's Roundtable has been to provide support, mentoring, and coaching to Pastors in an intimate setting. With over 25 years of experience in ministry, Pastor Keith Battle sought to transparently share his successes and learning lessons as he grew Zion Church from 25 attendees at a Bible Study to now over 5,000 weekly attendees across three campuses. It has been incredible to hear feedback from Pastors of established churches as well as new church plants who attended our recent Roundtable sessions. Take a look at the video below to hear what these Pastors gained from participating in The Roundtable. If you'd like to participate in the July 30th Roundtable, please click here to register.
