Let Us Ask Your Boss For Permission

Want to attend That Church Conference but need help asking your boss? Let us do it for you.

We love that you want to come to That Church Conference or one of our workshops, and we hope to get to meet you. But we know it can be hard to convince your boss to send you. They may not even understand what you do and why you need to come. Church budgets are strapped, and the finance committee only meets twice a year. We get it. So we want to help.

Fill out a form below and we’ll email your boss for you. Don’t worry, we’ll be professional. You can preview the email below, and when we send it out we’ll BCC you on it. Trust us, this actually works. Sometimes bosses just need a little nudge and outside perspective to make a decision.

Let’s Get Started…

Choose the event you wish to attend, and fill out the form below. Once you hit submit, we’ll fire off an email to your boss right away and BCC you.
