The Practical Church Conference has been designed to provide you with practical tips and ideas to further engage your church community and making the most of your weekend worship experience.
The 2018 conference will be centered around the topic of change in the church. We are honored to host Pastor Paul Smith from Rivertown Community Church. God is using Pastor Paul to lead an incredible story of change in his church community. You can listen to a small portion of this story here:

You will have an opportunity to hear real life stories from people who lead various ministries every day! Come prepared to ask questions and engage in a way that will expand your ideas about how ministry can be done.

Main Speakers
Paul Smith

Paul Smith

Lead Pastor, Rivertown Community Church

Over the past 20 plus years, while developing teams of leaders around him, breaking down cultural barriers, and doing what many said could not be done, Paul has watched God grow a small group of 35 into a church with three locations and still expanding, reaching people across multiple counties and diverse backgrounds. What was once a small, conservative church is now a life-giving community of believers whose mission is to radically change the local community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Chris Goeppner

Chris Goeppner

Lead Pastor, Riverbank Church

In 2010, Chris and his family answered the call to leave their church in Florida and move to New England to plant a church that was on a rescue mission to reach VT & NH with the message of Jesus. Riverbank Church has experienced unprecedented growth over the past few years. They have done so by simply making the most of the weekend worship opportunity with the resources God has given them. Chris is a leading voice in the practical church movement.
