COR is requiring that if a Conference is getting a reduced rate, each church registering will need to turn in to the conference office (I will bring deliver them) a written paragraph or so about the expectations for leadership development in the local church…in other words, how will you use the conference to further develop leadership in the local church?
All Clergy and 2 lay people from each church may register via the discounted rate and the Rio Texas Conference will be paying for the registration fee. (More laity can register, but not under the reduced rate and the individual or church will need to cover the cost for the additional people.)
Instructions for registering: From the website, li.cor.org, select Registration from the top menu. Scroll down the page and read through the Registration Tips prior to registering so they’ll have all the information ready to enter. If a registrant completes only part of the registration before completing the payment section, their registration won’t be complete and they won’t be registered. After reading through the Tips, they can select the Register Now button. After entering their Name and email address, they’ll need to select ShareChurch Registrar Group from the dropdown menu for Registration Type. On the next screen in the ShareChurch Registrar Group, they need to select Rio Texas Leadership Group from the dropdown menu. For payment type, select “pay by check”. Please note: The group registration is for the main Institute only…if you want to attend the pre-institute workshops, you will have to register and pay for them separately.
Besides paying for all clergy and 2 lay people from each church, clergy may turn in travel /hotel reimbursements for up to $150. All original receipts will be needed. Karen Horan will have the forms at LI for you to fill out. Since MHM covers the clergy portion, a follow up survey must be completed before reimbursements will be mailed. If you have any questions, please contact Karen Horan or Eve Albert in the conference office.
