Elevate Summit - Fresno

The Elevate Summit is one aspect of the “Elevate” initiative and is meant to provide assistance to all church leaders who are interested in developing a healthy church atmosphere where people are being reached for Christ and growing to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Elevate is born out of a heart to help CSBC congregations become healthy and growing churches.

Elevate Summits are regionally planned. Each is identical in content and format, beginning at 8:30 a.m. and concluding by 3:30 p.m. The Summit includes high-value, multi-track "incubator sessions" addressing leadership, strategic, economic and worship experience practices, and resources from nationwide leading experts. Participants will learn the biblical and professional foundation of strategic planning, giving, digital media and technology for the worship experience.
