Free Sunday School Essentials Conferences in North Florida this January

Attention Floridians and people who live in lower Alabama, southern Georgia, and even eastern Mississippi! I’m leading Lifeway Christian Resources’ Sunday School Essentials Conference at 2 locations in the Florida panhandle later this month. Registration closes on 1/13/23 (earlier if we book up), so sign up ASAP! Space is limited and we’re almost full.

Who should attend? Senior pastors, ministers of education, discipleship pastors, lay Sunday School directors…whoever gives leadership to your church’s groups ministry.

What topics do we cover?

  1. The biblical basis for groups
  2. The purpose and definition of Sunday School
  3. Developing a discipleship pathway for your church
  4. A five-step formula for growing your Sunday School
  5. Best practices for enlisting leaders
  6. Developing your church’s curriculum plan
  7. How to create a multi-year training plan
  8. A process for determining your next steps after the conference
  9. And more!

What should you expect?

  1. A fast-paced and interactive conference – no boredom allowed!
  2. You’ll make new friends in ministry
  3. You’ll get new ideas for getting your groups ministry in shape
  4. You’ll go home with tons of resources and ideas
  5. Great food, fellowship, and encouragement

We’ll begin in Pensacola, Florida, where the event will take place on 1/23 and 1/24 (Monday and Tuesday) at the First Baptist Church of Pensacola. We’ll regroup and lead a second Essentials conference a few hours away in Tallahassee, Florida, on 1/26 and 1/27 (Thursday and Friday).

The event is free of charge, and participants receive:

  • A CSB Pastors’ Bible
  • A 100-page conference notebook with 10 sessions
  • Snacks and drinks
  • A free dinner meal as a group at the end of day 1 (we reserve space at a nice local restaurant)
  • Lunch on day 2 (normally a Chick-Fil-A box lunch)
  • Several books on Sunday School and small groups
  • A leather padfolio that is branded with the Sunday School Essentials logo

If you’re coming from out of the area, all you have to pay for is your travel plus one night of hotel – I won’t charge you a dime for the two-day training. Lifeway and I will make this investment in churches and church leaders 10 times this year in locations around the country.

Shoulder to shoulder,

Ken Braddy


  1. Hey Ken,
    Do you have any plans for more of these this year? North Florida is a little far for me at this date. I’d love to participate though. Thanks for all you do to invest.

    • Hey Ben. Yes…I’m leading 10 in all…already did one in Texas and Hawaii. Go to the signup/information page and you can see the rest of the Essentials events and locations:
