2018 Local Church Elders Training 

Over seventy elders from many different churches in the BC Conference made their way to Camp Hope, BC, for a very spiritual and practical Local Church Elders Training during the weekend of June 15-17. Dr. Nik Satelmajer, GC Consultant/Discipleship Coach, was the main speaker/presenter for that special occasion. 

This training was a fulfillment of the BC Conference desire to equip and assist its current Church Elders for service in God’s Cause as well as to prepare those who would accept the call to serve in that capacity. Equipping members for ministry was voted as one of the top priorities by the BC Conference Board of Directors earlier this year and a part of the vision for this quinquennial. We believe in spiritual, solid, and committed leadership as an integral component for growth in our congregations.

The Local Church Elders training was very successful in achieving its goals: It provided an inspiring spiritual atmosphere and its presentations were practical and involving. All participants felt God’s presence, and Dr. Satelmajer’s experience of many years in ministry captivated those who wanted to be better equipped for service. Pastors Wesley Torres and Ern Brake also presented relevant topics to the Elders. The topics included Sermon preparation, The Qualifications and Functions of a Church Elder, Leadership, Evangelism, Board Chairmanship, and open sessions for questions and answers. 

The BC Conference believes in a close and harmonious relationship between its church elders and pastors and it is committed to sponsor more training events for those serving in this capacity every year as well as for other service positions in God’s church. We are already making plans for our Local Church Elders Training (Retreat) in 2019. Thank you to those who came, to the pastors who supported it, and their churches that sent the elders for this training.
