This session will explore the need for discipline, the biblical process of discipline and how this process can benefit the growth of your local church.

Worship as One for One

Patrick Dopson

In this session you can join the OCBF Worship Ministry Team to look at how vital unity is for receiving God’s blessing in the church.

Executive Assistant, You're More than a Gatekeeper

Sylvia Stewart

The role of an executive assistant to the senior pastor is to be his gatekeeper. A gatekeeper filters calls and visitors without blocking them; focuses on maximizing the time of the pastor they support; prays, cries, serves in times of crisis, and much more. Do you have a clear understanding of your pastor’s goals and objectives, and integrity of heart and skill of hands? We’ll explore all of this during our session together.
