NOTE: This event will be postponed if COVID-19 restrictions are still in place.

CBFVA is committed to resourcing clergy and congregations. We are pleased to offer Pastors’ Roundtable, a unique opportunity for senior pastors to find encouragement for the journey and engage in conversation with a gifted and seasoned senior pastor. Dr. Mike Smith, an effective senior pastor for 45 years, will tour the state and share out of his myriad gifts and experiences while engaging participants in conversations that fosters rich cross-pollination. Here are some of the topics Mike will address (you bring the rest of the agenda):

  • Bringing balance to the pastor’s life
