Foundational—The Core Qualities for Effective Ministry serve as the foundation for the seminars at the 2020 Pastors Family Convention. 

Thesis—The research done by NAD Ministerial over the last few years leads us to believe that pastors who are proficient in the Core Qualities, are more likely to be effective in ministry. 

Growth Area—Every pastor has areas of potential growth and the CALLED convention is a perfect time to experience seminars from experts in the many descriptors of Core Qualities. 

Personal Selection—As you plan your Lexington adventure, spend some time reflecting on your own Core Qualities. Study the chart below and look for areas where you have the potential for growth. Then go to the seminar listings and find presenters who will be focusing on your potential growth areas. 

120 Seminars—The CALLED convention features over 120 top of the line seminars and super-seminars for Pastors, Volunteer Lay Pastors, and Ministerial Spouses. All of these seminars offered during the convention will focus on specific descriptors of the seven core qualities of the Pastor in North America: Character, Evangelism, Leadership, Worship, Management, Scholarship, and Relationship. 

Tracks—Specific Tracks will be offered for Spanish speaking Pastors, Volunteer Lay Pastors, and Ministerial Spouses.
