We want to invite you to join us for ALIGN - a FREE training series that is centered around the four distinct areas of ministry that our volunteers serve in. Each training is set up to reconnect and encourage our volunteers, while equipping them for their ministry. This conference is also available to other local churches and ministry teams in hopes that we can grow together and share what we know with open hands.


Guest Services - April 6

Guest services is one of the most overlooked ministries of the church today.  First-time guests often decide if they will return within the first ten minutes and friendship can’t override a blown first impression. Since the sermon starts in the parking lot and you’ve only got one chance to make a first impression, we need to be strategic in what we do. We will discuss best practices and strategies for things such as parking lot, safety, greeters, cafe and welcome desk.

Schedule: Training - 9:00 - 12:00 pm

Location: Bridgewater Montrose
10142 State Route 167
Montrose, PA 18801


Worship - April 27

We are excited to host our second annual Bridgewater Worship Conference! Worship Ministry is an important part of the local church and we want to bring our very best to the Lord and our congregation. This conference is designed to further train you in your ministry area, help you take your next step of growth, and cast vision for the future. 

This one-day conference will be held at our Bridgewater Vestal campus. With large group sessions for worship and general training to small breakouts for specific ministry areas, such as musicians, singers, production, tech, sound, and lights, everyone will come away with practical steps for growth. We hope to see you there! 

Schedule: Training - 8:30 - 2:00 pm (lunch included)

Location: Bridgewater Vestal
2101 Owego Road 
Vestal, NY 13850
