Church leaders from around the Hawai‘i Conference gathered at Nu‘uanu Congregational Church on Saturday, February 23 for the 2019 Church Leaders Event, sponsored by Our Church's Wider Mission. The keynote speaker was Hawai‘i Conference Minister for Church Vitality and the author of Grow Your Church, Tracy Barnowe, who led evidence-based, hands-on, interactive workshops on how to do the most effective forms of outreach. For tips, actions, and tools to grow your church, you can view her website howtogrowmychurch.com.
The opening message at the event was given by Pastor Eric Anderson of Church of the Holy Cross. His message "Live Aloha" is a call to each of us. You can read the full sermon HERE.

Opportunities for Outreach
Participants worked together with others from their island to make a list of events that happen in their community throughout the year that can be opportunities for outreach. They have all been compiled into this Community Events Calendar.
