They were longing for a better country-a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them." (Hebrews 11:16)

Please join us for Team Day 2015 as we gather to cry out to our God, "Build Your Kingdom Here!" As has been the case since the beginning, God does not build His Kingdom through governments. He builds His Kingdom through transformed lives who become agents of transformation.

Our morning sessions will focus on stories of transformed lives and training to tell the story (evangelism). Our afternoon sessions will focus on becoming agents of transformation (discipleship). Lunch will be provided, during which we'll gather in discussion groups for encouragement and training around our specific ministry roles (board secretaries, board members, treasurers, worship leaders, SDMI, NYI, NMI, lead pastors, ministerial students)

Please visit the TEAM DAY tab to make childcare reservations, read about our speakers, see the latest updates on workshops, and to download fliers & inserts.

NWIL Team Day 2015 will feature onsite lunch. (a free will offering will be taken to help cover the cost of lunch) Lunch will be divided into Discussion Groups. There will be a discussion group for everyone. This addition to Team Day allows more sessions for you and a great way to share with our Local Leaders.

CHILDREN REGISTRATION is required. Please go to the TEAM DAY tab to register. This will ensure that every child attending Team Day will have a great experience and will be well taken care of.

This event is for Layman, Pastors, Staff, Board Members, NMI Presidents, NYI Presidents, SDMI Presidents, Treasurers, Small Group and Sunday School Teachers.
