We love our Branson groups, and from time to time we’d like to highlight some of the hundreds of groups that choose Thousand Hills and Branson year after year. We just finished visiting with the Connect Communication Conference, and here’s what they said about their Branson groups visit: “Thousand Hills Resort was the host hotel for Connect Communication Conference held at the Branson United Methodist Church November 15,16 & 17th. There were national speakers and outstanding resources in church communications, evangelism and preaching.
Dr. Bob Pierson is the founder and Executive Director of Leadership Nexus the presenters. As Senior Pastor of Christ United Methodist Church in Tulsa, Ok, he and his wife, Delia, served for 37 years, growing it from an attendance of 200 to over 1600. He also helped found the Large Church Initiative of the United Methodist Church and served as its chairperson for 14 years.
As Mr. Pierson survey the Church and ask what their needs are, several things that were most often mentioned were: help in effectively reaching new people, technology of communications, and improve in our preaching. Those were the topics put together, so they could be addressed in one location beautiful Branson, MO.
We’re anxious to review the evaluations from the event. Branson was a great destination for a significant learning opportunity and a little vacation to enjoy the Christmas festival of lights. “
If you’re looking into a Branson groups event, be sure to contact Wanda Nicol, our Groups Director for help in planning an event as successful as the Connect Communication Conference.
