The Elevate Summit is one aspect of the California Southern Baptist Convention “Elevate” initiative to provide assistance to all church leaders 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, growing churches.
Elevate CSBC involves three separate but interrelated events:
- Elevate Summits are one-day conferences for all church leaders, provided regionally throughout California. The Summit provides training and resourcing to help your ministry elevate to the next level. It delivers unprecedented, progressive and relevant concepts to equip you and your team for greater Kingdom impact. Participants will receive:
- A free lunch
- A "swag bag" with helpful resources and a gift
- Elevate Clusters are monthly gatherings of pastors committed to growing their leadership skills.
- Elevate Assessments are on-site consultations that detail next-step opportunities to elevate the church to the next level.
Here's what leaders are saying about the Elevate Summit.
The 2017 Elevate Summits are scheduled in four locations, each of which will focus on helping churches elevate attendance, baptisms and giving.
