Understanding Difficult People in Ministry … Including Yourself

Brian Moore, Crosspointe Church

One of the biggest storms all of us must face is understanding what makes us tick and what drives our pastoral behaviors.  In this leadership talk, you will discover the forces behind the crazy things (other) people do and the great things God has called you to do.  God has wired all of us with needs, but how we value those needs and in what order, determines whether you will be beat up by the waves or riding them.  You can’t change the way a wave breaks, but you can learn to surf them.

Holy Shift

How to Engage Young Families

Every great team needs a great coach

More From Less

Nathan Elson, Vice President of Marketing | CDF Capital

Ask any marketer, any real marketer, it does not matter how big your company is, you have limitations. Whether it is bureaucracy, budget, people, or time, there always are things that limit what we can accomplish (or what we want to accomplish) through marketing.

This is especially true for non-profits and small to mid-size businesses.

So is there a way to past those limitations? At CDF Capital, we are experiencing tremendous growth in scale, capability, and the effectiveness of our marketing by doing the only thing we can: by embracing our limitations, and learning how to maximize them. In this session we’ll share three key principles that will have a transformational effect on your marketing.
