Saturday October 15th, 10am – 3pm in Fellowship Hall
All who call First Baptist “home” are invited to join us on October 15th for this inspiring, informative, empowering event—the first in a series of leadership workshops slated to take place over the next couple of years at FBC. Dr. Geoff Abbott and Mr. Mark Nishan will offer a faith-based version of their successful Intact Team Workshops.
Together we’ll focus on exploring:
- The values that shape who we are as a congregation
- A shared vision for First Baptist
- Some meaningful steps we will take in order to fulfill God’s mission for us during the next several years.
Geoff Abbott and his family have been members of St. Paul United Methodist Church in Woodbridge, VA for over 18 years. Geoff has been a past chair of the Pastor Parish Relations Committee and member of United Methodist Men.
Mark Nishan and his family have been members of St John Neumann Catholic parish in Gaithersburg for over 19 years. Mark has been lector for all 19 years and does regular readings from the Bible at a number of church services. He and his wife, Mary are lead members of the church’s’ Capital Campaign Committee which recently raised $2.5 million for church improvements and buildings. Mark and Mary also head the parish welcoming committee for new parishioners joining the church.
Light refreshments and lunch will be served. The event is free and registration will begin soon so that we can prepare enough food for all.
