Over 2,000 Attend Free Conference & Learn About OGT

BPM, which stands for Best Practices in Ministry, is a conference hosted by Christ Church Lutheran-Phoenix, AZ. For over 10 years they have offered this FREE conference to remind professional and lay church workers that you are loved, you are not alone, and you matter. OGT-Phoenix Branch and Norfolk, NE Headquarters hosted a table at this year’s conference, held February 22-24. It was attended by over 2,000 people, it is outdoors; and this year’s weather was ideal in the high 70’s. During the course of the three days, sessions on a multitude of subjects are provided in the day school. Many people stopped by the booth to learn more about OGT.
Picture #1 shows Pete Gnan-OGT Field Work Director, Jean Weber-OGT-Phoenix Volunteer Coordinator and Tom Watson-OGT Donor Relation Specialist in front of the display Table.
Picture #2: Pete participates in Cockroach Ring Toss. The youth from CCL were dressed in cockroach costumes and playing kazoos-if you missed the pole and they gave a down word sound, make the ring and an upbeat sound is played. Pete was a winner! All types of entertainment were provided during the three days, to keep attendees engaged.
Picture #3: a day following the BPM, Ken and Jean Weber hosted the OGT-Phoenix Board to a brunch. This provided the board members time to meet Pete and Tom.
