Discovering the People Within Your Reach: See, Know, and Serve with Thomas G. Bandy and Lucinda Holmes. Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9, 2016 at Iliff School of Theology (and possible livestreaming sites in Colorado, Montana and Nevada). This workshop for laity and clergy teams will train participants to use MissionInsite.com data (already paid for by the Annual Conference) to make more effective choices in the kinds of activities that will reach new people in your congregation's neighborhood. Ask questions about everything from using the technology to worship types and leadership types that are most desired by different populations. The data segmentation accounts for rural/urban/suburban, racial/ethnic, economic, educational, and age differences. Subsidized by MEF funds and Iliff, only $40 per person.
