Cultivate is a one-day conference to further equip Christians as we invest and lead in our local churches.  This conference is designed for new and experienced church lay leaders, teachers, ministry and administrative directors, pastors, congregation members, and students who have a heart for ministry.


Cultivate 2017 will have a more relaxed atmosphere than past years.  The only choice you need to make now is who to bring with you.  You will be free to attend any of our workshop or breakout sessions you choose that day. We will have more details about the specific workshops over the course of the next few weeks. Keep checking here for updates!


We have designed the sessions around three areas of importance:

   Evangelism – Session A Workshops from 10:30am – 11:20am

   Discipleship – Session B Workshops from 11:30am – 12:20pm

   Empowering Leaders – Session B Workshops from 2:10pm – 3:00pm


Each of our district auxiliary ministry areas have sponsored one or two workshops in each area.


Our opening morning session and our lunch session will be with our keynote speaker, Dr. Gustavo Crocker, Church of the Nazarene General Superintendent. Our last workshop ends at 3:00pm, but many of the auxiliary ministries will have breakout sessions until 4:00pm.


Please note: you may register at any time – right up to the day of the event (walk in registrations welcome!) The only difference will be that we won’t be able to provide you with a lunch or any of the conference swag if you register after October 25.

We can’t wait to see you on November 11!
