A Vibrant Church Event coming to your area in 2022

Sponsored by the Artios Center for Vibrant Leadership


Now More Than Ever

The global pandemic lingers on, but the ministry of the church is not on pause. Now more than ever, the world needs the church. The good news is that there is a way, especially for small churches, to deliver hope and healing to our broken world in 2022 and beyond. The goal of this one-day vibrant church event is to equip you with the vision, information and resources you need to be salt and light to this generation.


Artios Center Initiative

This event is made possible by the Artios Center for Vibrant Leadership, an initiative of Artios Christian College, which is a ministry of the General Conference of the Church of God (Seventh Day).

The Artios Center exists to help fulfill Artios Christian College’s commitment to equip leaders for a vibrant 21st century church. The center seeks to carry out that mission by taking training to the people within their local contexts, initiating collaborative ventures in leadership training, discipleship, coaching and consulting, along with the creation of practical resources to help leaders and churches join God on His mission in the world!

Who Should Attend

This event is open to members of the church on all levels: pastors, elders, deacons, board members, staff, teachers, children and youth workers—and everyone else who has a heart for their local church’s vibrant future.


Practical Takeaways

  • Fresh encouragement and insights for leaders and churches.
  • Dynamic presentations on the role of the church in a world in crisis and a vision for seizing this moment for the glory of God!
  • Relevant information on current trends in church and culture affecting evangelism and discipleship.
  • Practical resources (including the Church Health Survey) to help engage and mobilize members.
  • Bonus coaching / consultation sessions with Artios Center Dean, Whaid Rose.


Topics for Presentations and Focus Groups include:
