I would like to take this opportunity to personally invite you to a Communication Training Seminar. Please help us get the word out. This will be held beginning 5:00 pm Friday, April 17, and all day Sabbath, April 18, 2015 at the Conference Office. Sabbath lunch will be provided. I know that your church will benefit greatly if your communication department person/s are present, and/or any of the members that deal with or are interested in communicating the Word. We will cover the latest information on Church websites. Rosa Velder from Adventist Church Connect of AdventSource will be present, representing the group that hosts all North American Division church websites. She will share what they are doing to improve the site. We will have Randy Harmdierks from Mid-America Union, Director for Social Media. He will share how we can use Facebook and social media as evangelistic tools. David Rawson, from the North American Division Adventist Risk Management, will also join us. He will be sharing with us the risks in social media and how to protect the church. Risk Management is the General Conference insurance company that covers the church and its work. There will be a small cost of $15 per person to help cover seminar expenses.

I am personally looking forward to this seminar because I think that as a church we can do much more by enhancing our presence on the web and employing the latest technology in the proclamation of the Word. However, that does not mean abandoning the gospel-tested method of personal contact with people. Why this seminar?
- Because new worlds of opportunity are opening up every day
- Because local church media now dominate the religious market
- Because this has not been our strong point
- Because this is important to fulfill the gospel commission
- Because we can build collaboration for success
- Because it will be fun to bring together people excited about sharing the gospel
- Because we need qualitative guidelines to help us in ministry
We look forward to seeing you there.
