Come to Annual Conference on Saturday, June 17, 2017, at the Phoenix Glendale Renaissance Hotel for a day of learning with Robert Schnase, bishop of the Rio Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. Schnase is the author of the bestselling books Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations, Five Practices of Fruitful Living, Practicing Extravagant Generosity, and Seven Levers: Missional Strategies for Conferences. His latest book, Just Say Yes: Unleashing People for Ministry, is written for people whose passion has been simmering for years, who yearn to be told Yes!
Are there people like this within your congregation? Bring them with you to Annual Conference to hear Schnase examine the systems and attitudes that restrain and control ministry. He demonstrates practical ways church leaders can rethink fundamental assumptions about organizations and leadership.
Before his election as bishop, Schnase served for 15 years as senior pastor of First United Methodist Church in McAllen, Texas, a congregation that became widely known for its extensive mission and outreach, for reaching younger generations, and bicultural ministry.
