You are Invited

The 2014 Parish Leadership Conference is especially designed to assist parishes in “Rebuilding”. Sessions are tailored to meet the needs of all ministries, staff and volunteers. Parish staffs and leadership councils are encouraged to attend as a team (a great Staff Day resource). See the conference brochure for more details.

Featuring Speakers Michael White & Brian Crook

Father Michael White received his bachelor’s degree from Loyola University Maryland and his graduate degrees in sacred theology and ecclesiology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. After being ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, he worked for five years as personal secretary to William Cardinal Keeler, who was then archbishop. During that time, he served as the director of the papal visit of Pope John Paul II to Baltimore.

During his tenure as pastor at Church of the Nativity, the church has almost tripled in weekend attendance from 1,400 to over 4,000. More importantly, the commitment to the mission of the Church has grown, evidenced by the significant increase of giving and service in ministry.

Brian Crook is the Director of Missions at Church of the Nativity. He grew up in Timonium, Maryland and has witnessed Church of the Nativity’s transformation to a thriving parish through the years. He received his bachelor’s degree from Furman University and has served on staff at Nativity for the past six years. Brian oversees Nativity's local and global Missions strategic partnerships as well as leads the Adult Discipleship department.
