Here are the answers to your frequently asked questions.
October 9, 2019
Dear Pastors & Leaders:
It's with great delight that I welcome you to the 2019 CAPACITY Conference Hackathon Experience. Because of my heart for pastors, church planters, and marketplace leaders, I recognize the challenges you face in the areas of leadership development and innovation.
The Hackathon Experience is our way of helping you carve out the time needed to shift your paradigm and capture your Big Ideas. As Kingdom builders we're called to seize opportunities that serve God's people in new and sustainable ways. We believe eyes have not seen nor ears heard what your "Big Ideas" will do for the Kingdom!
The landscape is changing and now is the time to be bold in evaluating what is next for your organization. I pray the Lord's blessing on your team and we look forward to celebrating the potential impact of this iron sharpening experience.
In Grateful Partnership,
Bishop Dale C. Bronner
