Does your congregation have a story of an event, program, series, idea, curriculum, etc that you implemented that produced fruit for God's kingdom? We'd love to hear about it and share it with the other churches -- the goal is that over time we will accumulate a database of "best practices" that can be shared in other settings around the District.
To share this information, simply fill out the form below. If you have electronic files you wish to share pertaining to this Best Practice, please include them in the form or, if you wish, you can attach them in a separate email to the District Board's Communication Liaison, Rev. Jason Andersen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
