Pre-Assembly Seminar

“Creating a Healthy Balance in Ministry: Theological and Practical Perspectives”

An exploration of Christian ministry: Responsibilities, Relationships, Boundaries and Self-Care from theological and practical perspectives with the intent of helping us become self-aware and effective in our role as ministers.

Facilitator, Rev. Shawn Wallace

Shawn Wallace is the Senior Pastor at First Christian Church of Rogers. Shawn has a passion for true and authentic unity in the Church—a unity and depth of relationship that transcends racial, theological, political, cultural, and socio-economic barriers. He hopes that all people would come to know each other better and seek to mutually aid each other so that all may be truly free and filled with God’s abundant life.

Panel Members: Rev. Leroy Bryant, Bishop Zedric Clayton, Rev. Dr. Stan McDougal, Rev. Ann Pickett-Parker, Rev. Donna Rountree
