Elders, deacons and deaconesses from nine Seventh-day Adventist churches recently attended a training seminar in Houston, Missouri to better equip themselves to minister to people in their communities.

The training included practical leadership tools from Lee Rochholz, ministerial director for the Iowa-Missouri Conference, as well as a stirring challenge and reiteration of the gospel commission from conference president Dean Coridan. A delicious soup and sandwich supper was also provided.

The Houston church thanks all who made the effort to attend and those who helped make the training event a success.
