District Assistants: Striving to Serve

11/8/2012

Administrative Assistants across the conference do much more than answer the phone and coordinate District Superintendent schedules. On behalf of the local congregations in their areas, they recently gathered in the Woodlands for an annual professional development retreat.

Sessions addressed technology upgrades for district office reporting, new information about the candidacy program and Lakeview Conference Center updates. Additionally, they participated in an interactive communications brainstorming session focused on how local churches and the district offices can maximize website and publicity opportunities.

In addition to two days of learning, the district representatives enjoyed devotional and communion time together.
