Pastor Roundtable Discussions
via Zoom
As we all make adjustments in our changing circumstances, we want to provide an opportunity for pastors to connect with each other.
Proverbs 27:7  "Iron sharpens iron
so one man sharpens another."
You are not alone and do not need to face our current challenges alone. We want to learn from each other as well as support each other. We are better and stronger together. Please invite other pastors to participate - whether they are a part of SABA or not.
Each geographical area, where our churches are located, is different so we have created discussion groups in order to connect area pastors together. If you are not able to participate in your area roundtable, please choose one that will work for your schedule.
We would like to create at least two helpful lists:
- best practices
- FAQ's with Answers

Here are the options for zoom calls:

 

1.  Northeast Area Pastor's Roundtable

Thursday March 26 @ 9:00 am to 10:00 am

 

2.  Southeast Area Pastor's Roundtable

Thursday March 26 @ 11 am to 12 noon

 

3.  Southwest Area Pastor's Roundtable

Thursday March 26 @ 1 pm to 2 pm

 

4.  Northwest Area Pastor's Roundtable

Thursday March 26 @ 3 pm to 4 pm

 

Here are a few questions for our discussion:

1. As you have make adjustments, what has been your biggest challenge?
2. What financial shifts might you have to make?
3. How are you helping your congregation stay in community even thought they cannot physically meet as a group?
4. What is the biggest longterm challenge?
