The Equip Leadership Conference aims to Equip, Empower and Encourage leaders in small and medium-sized churches with pastors who have a desire to grow past their current growth barriers in the areas of teams, systems, and culture. There will be inspiring leadership messages, practical training, breakouts covering various aspects of ministry like leadership, worship, children, security, hospitality, pastoral care and finances, helpful resources, networking opportunities, and a special senior pastor experience, all with a mission to help you regroup, restructure, and relaunch your church.

You will hear from Corey Williams, Senior Pastor of Hope City Church and special guest Vernon Gordon, Lead/Founding Pastor of The Life Church with two locations in Richmond and Alexandria Virginia.  Alongwith members of the staff of Hope City.
