2020 Ministry Leader Summit

The Gospel and God’s Word never changes, but many of our ministry assumptions have hardened into convictions that are keeping us from effective Gospel ministry.

In our plenary sessions we will examine how Ephesians 4 speaks powerfully to our current culture and context and seek to engage the timeless power of the Gospel …

to form transformational maturity and create irresistible community.


Our Plenary Speaker – Pastor Ira Hall

Ira Hall has served as Senior Pastor of Bean’s Corner Baptist Church in Jay Maine since December of 2006 after serving as Youth/Associate Pastor for the 10 previous years. 

He graduated from Lancaster Bible College in 1992 with a B.S. in Bible with a concentration in Christian Education/Youth Ministry. He has served as Campus Staff for InterVaristy Christian Fellowship at University of Maine Farmington.  Over the years he has spoken at numerous youth conferences, adult Christian Education conferences, and Christian School Chapels.

He and his wife Sarah have a daughter and three sons.   Ira’s focus at Bean’s Corner is the equipping of disciple-makers and building up the ministry team.  Ira has a unique ability to share the truth of God’s Word in a real-life context.

Breakout Sessions:

The Discipleship Path: What It Is, Why You Need One, And How To Build It

Deanna Doe
Connections Director
Good News Community Church
Preaching alone is never enough to transform people into fully devoted followers of Jesus. Build a strategic system in your church that helps everyone take their next step with Jesus and grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

From Solo Act To Team Sport: Developing a Leadership Team

Mathew Fite
Good News Community Church
Ministry was never meant to be a solo act where the pastor worked himself to death trying to keep everyone in the church happy. Instead, we need a new paradigm where the pastor’s role is to lead a team who, together, are able to both care for the congregation and grow the Kingdom of God, all without burning out the pastor.

So You Are A Board Member – What Hat Are You Wearing?

Stan Rieb
Director – RMCN
Church leaders wear at least three different “hats” of functional identity. If one does not understand the differences of those functional identities it can create confusion, misunderstanding and conflict. We will define the “hats” a leader must wear and how best to engage them for effective ministry.

Building Missional Connections

Dave Whitaker
President  – CBAmerica
Relational connections within the local church, and beyond the confines of its walls, are essential for effective ministry. Dave Whitaker will share the importance of strategizing missional connections within the church, community and beyond.

Who will you bring to the table?


This is a Ministry Leader Summit. We encourage not only pastor and spouses, but ministry leaders and board members to attend.


We have discovered that attendance by the broader scope of ministry leaders to be highly effective at building a greater concept team unity of purpose and language.

This is as effective for the smaller church as it is for the larger church.
