Our initial plenary session for each Regional Gathering will be focused on a time of intentional, strategic, organic prayer, vison casting, and seeking the Lord. This will be designed to refresh you, provide a safe place to receive personal prayer, as well as giving you time to seek the Lord for any specific area of your life that you desire. This time will also connect perfectly with the theme of this gathering, “Multiplying Spirit-Led Churches”.
For the second plenary session please include this description; In our second plenary session, scheduled for 2-3pm, is described as a “calling-specific development”. During that time we will be highlighting and recognizing some regional success stories of local, fruitful, ongoing leadership development within our Gateway District Foursquare churches.
Also for the first time ever this Regional Gathering will include a time specifically dedicated to teens and taught by our very own District Supervisor, Dr. Sam Rockwell. As a district, in response to the Lord’s prompting and your input and suggestions, we recognize that we need to make a concerted effort to make our teens a higher priority moving forward through intentional, focused interaction at every level of our gatherings and churches.

Entrepreneurial Leadership: Finding Your Calling, Making a Difference, By Richard Goossen and R. Paul Stevens
What does good theology have to do with good entrepreneurship? In this pioneering work, Richard Goossen and R. Paul Stevens have written what many are already declaring to be the essential resource for Christian entrepreneurial leadership, based on exhaustive research, practical experience and decades of teaching marketplace theology. Entrepreneurial Leadership addresses both the “how-come” and the “how-to,” not only grounding the entrepreneurial calling in its proper source in the triune God but also providing practical guides for how to be an effective leader. Be inspired to find your calling and to make a difference in the marketplace, church and beyond.
