“Lay Leadership in the 21st Century”

The Christian Church Capital Area will be hosting its semi-annual Salt and Light Conference at National City Christian Church in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, October 19, 2019.  We expect clergy, experienced lay-leaders as well as lay-leaders-in-training to participate from each of the 40 member churches in the Capital Area Region. 

The purpose of the Salt and Light Conference is to help develop congregational leaders by providing practical information, inspiration, and encouragement.  In this way we hope to strengthen and enliven regional congregations, improve/retain our saltiness, and to let our light shine brightly (see Mt 5:13-16).

Rev. Dr. F. Douglas “Doug” Powe, author, professor at Wesley Seminary, is our keynote speaker will address  the question “What are the leadership requirements for the 21st century?”

The Rev. Dr. Powe, Jr. is an ordained elder in the Baltimore/Washington Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church.  Rev. Powe is committed to helping urban congregations and congregations in transitional areas to flourish through community partnering.  His research interest are church revitalization, urban theology and Methodist theology.  Dr. Powe is the new Director of the Lewis Center for Church Leadership at Wesley Seminary.

 More information will be posted on the Capital Area Region’s website as it becomes available.
