It’s the big question on every church’s mind these days.  In the aftermath of the pandemic, ever-changing social landscapes, and feelings of apathy towards a genuine faith, it can be challenging to know how to effectively reach those in your local context.

The Practical Community Engagement Strategies + Breakfast is a half-day seminar sponsored by Anderson First Church of the Nazarene to help equip pastors and community leaders with strategies, resources, and tools necessary to navigate these challenges and inspire and encourage them to continue to be faithful to their calling.

This year, Dr. Michael Mata, the Director of Network Engagement for TOGETHERLA, will be the keynote speaker and will be focusing on how to cultivate stronger connection between churches/ non-profits and their immediate surroundings.

Saturday, December 10th
9 AM - 12 PM
2300 Jackson Street, Anderson, IN 46016
