COSIM—Coalition On the Support of Indigenous Ministries—is pleased to announce the convening of the 19th annual conference to be held May 19–21, 2014. The venue is the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The conference theme is “Equipping Leaders in the Context of Partnership.” Participants will explore together the vital role of equipping Christian leaders—in North America and the Majority World—for or through cross-cultural collaboration.
COSIM is honored to have T.J. Addington as its keynote presenter on Monday evening. T.J. Addington is a Senior Vice President with the EFCA and the leader of ReachGlobal, the international mission of the EFCA. He has served as a pastor, consultant and denominational leader. He is the author of two books on leadership, High Impact Church Boards and Leading From The Sandbox, and two books on spiritual formation, Live Like You Mean It, available from NavPress—and When Life Comes Undone.
Over the past twenty five years, T.J. has consulted with numerous churches and Christian non-profit organizations in the areas of healthy leaders, intentional leadership, governance systems and dealing with issues of organizational health and strategy.
