Church Planting Boot Camp @ DTS, May 14-18, 8-5pm

For those still in the Dallas area:
DTS is offering a special course through the Pastoral Ministries Department during the 1st Summer session. It is called Church Planting Boot Camp and the course will be taught by Dr. Bob Rowley. I'm sure a one-week course is not very convienent for those who have already graduated but I thought I'd provide the information anyway. Here is some info. about Dr. Rowley.

From EFCA Texas-Oklahome District website:
"Dr. Bob Rowley graduated with a Th.M. degree from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1982. He and his wife, JoAnn, then moved to Laredo, Texas where God used them to plant Grace Bible EFC.
Over the years, Bob and JoAnn have served as Urban Intercultural missionaries with the EFCA, and Bob served several years on the district board, and five years as the district Director of Church Planting before becoming the District Superintendent. Bob has been involved in about thirty church plants over the years.
On June 14, 2004, Bob was unanimously elected District Superintendent for the EFCA – Texas District. He resigned from the staff of Grace Bible Church on December 31, 2004 and began giving full-time to the EFCA – Texas District. In February of 2005 the district became the EFCA Texas-Oklahoma district. Bob and JoAnn live in San Antonio, Texas.
Bob serves on the EFCA National Church Planting Team and is the EFCA national trainer for coaching. Bob completed his Doctor of Ministry degree at Dallas Theological Seminary in May of 2005. His research and dissertation wrestled with the question of what is required to successfully coach church planters. He was the recipient of the John G. Mitchell award given to a student in the Doctor of Ministry program who demonstrates outstanding scholarship and effectiveness in ministry. In the past he has also received the EFCA Church Planting District of the Year award and the UIM Bridging Award for bridging cultures."

Any idea about the cost?

Its a summer course, not a conference or anything like that, so its about $1,000.
