Snakes, Spandex, and Scorpions: A How-To Approach for Meeting the Neighbors
Fr. Thomas Hall
The theme clearly embedded in this MAST Talk: ways that we can leverage what we have and who we are for the sake of the Kingdom of God. This is more than a topic for me. This is my lived-experience. We have enfolded neighbors into St. David's, forged new relationships, and brought value to our larger community by simply leveraging what we have for God's use. This will be insightful and engaging, and will provide a take-home strategy for every attender.

Church Planting Among Seniors
Fr. Leo Laney
Of all American citizens the segment with the greatest experience in church planting and development, the one with the most time to invest, and the one with the life situations most likely to respond (geographically relocated, recently suffered tragedy or loss, major career change, etc.) are the elderly and aged. The field is white for harvest.
Encouraging Ordained Vocations in Your Congregations
