2019 National Pre-Conference Sessions & Trainers

Come one day early to participate in any one of these pre-conference sessions.  This year CPI is offering three options to choose from.  Each Pre-Conference session will be a three-part session.  Child care is available from 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 12!

Option 1: Discovering Your Personal Core Values (English)

Trainer: Ken Taylor. Ken Taylor has been a WorldVenture Missionary to Japan since 1995 involved in sharing the gospel in Japan through church planting, leadership development, music and innovative ministries, business as mission.  Ken and his wife, Bola (who graduated to glory in 2015) were professional entertainers in Southeast Asia.  Current ministry involvement includes the Hallelujah Gospel Family (HGF), Japan Baptist Fellowship (JBF where Ken also serves as the field leader), a compassion ministry called GLOW (God’s Love On Wheels) and recently Business as Mission.

Description: Discovering your Personal Core Values will help you be more effective in your life and work, regardless of your role as leader or team member.  Your core values should drive the decisions you make as you walk in faith each day. Often there are too many opportunities, and you can find yourself in a season where you are under or over utilized, or needing new direction.  It does not matter if you have been in the marketplace or ministry for over a decade, or if you are just beginning your career; this is the beginning a journey that will help you discover and apply your core values for a lifetime of effective action and decision making! The tools are simple and practical.

Option 3: Gospel DNA of Church Planting ~ Gospel, Culture, Movement ~ (Japanese)  

Trainer: Makoto Fukuda

Makoto Fukuda is currently lead pastor & church planter of Grace City Tokyo and has been a church planter for almost 30 years.

With the number of Christians and  churches in Japan decreasing, it’s important that we look at new church planting methods in order to reach the people and our communities with the gospel. How do we develop gospel-centered churches in this culture?  Let’s learn together and talk about spiritual renewal by gospel, contextualized evangelism, and well balanced work.
