The 2015-CALLED Pastor’s Family Convention is less than three months away.  We are praising God for over four thousand registered attendees and we are looking forward to meeting each one at the convention. 
Our six general sessions will focus on 7 qualities for excellence in pastoral ministry. The qualities are Character, Worship, Leadership, Evangelism, Management, Scholarship, and Relationship.
