Home Improvement Conference Details for Pastors

Where to Conduct the Home Improvement Conference

The Home Improvement Conference is designed for the participation of the entire church during all the evening and Sunday morning services. Most likely the auditorium will be the best setting for these times. Depending on the number of people in Saturday morning sessions (during the Home Improvement Conference Weekend), it may prove helpful to set up a classroom style setting in the fellowship hall or other appropriate setting.

Personnel Needed

  • Nursery workers for all sessions
  • Helpers in children’s meetings depending on number of children
  • Overseer for teens and children in Husband/Wife Breakout Sessions

Financial Policy

We ask the sponsoring church to provide a pro-rated travel expense ($495 for Home Improvement Family Conference within a 300 mile radius of Roanoke, VA) in advance. We make no demands, but ask that love offerings be received for our ministry utilizing our envelopes. These envelopes let the people understand what they are giving to. Any checks should be written to the Local Church. One check should be written at the end of the Home Improvement Conference to Christ Life Ministries. These love offerings go entirely to Christ Life Ministries.

Biographical Sketch

HAROLD VAUGHAN: Harold is an evangelist who is involved in full-time revival ministry. His preaching ministry has taken him to forty-eight States and numerous foreign countries. Revival in individual lives and the corporate life of the church is the dominant burden of his heart.

Harold is the founder of Christ Life Ministries. C.L.M. sponsors Prayer Advances for Men, Ladies, Students, and Couples. The ministry also publishes books and materials.

Essential Items Needed

  • Two Long Tables. Available for books, audio resources and free materials (in foyer).
  • Apart from what is on the platform, have a standup microphone available in front of the platform on audience level for every service.
  • LCD (PowerPoint®) Projector. Several of Harold’s messages will utilize PowerPoint®.
  • White Board/Chalkboard. Should be available for Kid’s Krusade.
  • Handouts

Accommodations

When distance permits, my wife and I come together and stay in our travel trailer. All that is needed is a water hookup and electricity. Our trailer requires a 30 or 50 amp R.V. hookup (see photo). The plug needs to be within 40 feet of the rear of the trailer. The electric breaker, appropriate wire, and R.V. plug can be obtained at an electrical store and should be installed by an electrician who understands R.V. electrical needs.

50 AMP Receptacle

30 AMP Receptacle

When I fly in, I need to stay in a “newer” hotel. Since I have chronic sinusitis, the room must be clean and free of dust and smoke. I have found that Marriott® brand hotels normally have the best air quality for my condition. Please, let me know in advance if hotel accommodations are not possible.

Kids’ Krusade

Debbie Vaughan is available to conduct a Kids’ Krusade for children ages 4-9. This gives the children a ministry on their level and allows the parents to concentrate totally on the message. The Kids’ Krusade begins on the first night of the meeting. Children are dismissed from the main service just prior to the message.

Meals

When bringing our travel trailer, we will take all our meals there. We would love to have Sunday lunch and perhaps some select meals with the pastor. Some churches elect to give funds for groceries during the Summit.
