We invite you to Fall Teaching Conference this year to be nourished and equipped by the Bible teaching and ministerial wisdom of Marty Giese, president of Oak Hills Christian College.  Marty’s long and fruitful years of Biblically based pastoral ministry suit him well to sharing with us on several aspects of church leadership.

The need for balance in ministry, rightly understood, is great in today’s world.  We often feel out of balance, or we get confused about what balance is and is not.  Marty will help us think through and live out a healthy balanced ministry.

Effectiveness is a broad concept.  Marty will guide us in being effective relative to our context of ministry, to change in ministry, and to faithfulness in ministry.

Rooted in Scripture, Marty will develop these themes of balance and effectiveness along these lines:

  • Balanced Shepherding: A Contemporary Look at an Ancient Ministry Metaphor
  • Effectiveness in Context: Understanding and Responding to the Unique Distinctives of Your Ministry Context
  • Navigating Change Personally and Professionally
  • Faithfulness vs. Fruitfulness and Other Effectiveness “Tensions”

No matter the specifics of your context of life and ministry, these themes will be relevant to you.  Come join us at Shamineau in October as we benefit together from Marty’s teaching.
