What We Do
Dallas Chapter #1 is proud to be the first organized local chapter of The Church Network. We exist to provide you with the opportunity to connect with others in our local church communities who have common needs and interests in church administration. Chapter participation allows members to come together for fellowship, to support one another by sharing ideas and resources, and to participate in seminars on topics of professional interest.
The Dallas Chapter #1 meets monthly, usually on the third Thursday, for a luncheon and program. We invite anyone serving in an administrative capacity in the local church or other religious institutions or businesses that specialize in church services to join us for fellowship and professional development. We look forward to seeing you at our monthly luncheons and confident you will discover the valuable and enjoyable associations that we have.
Annual National Conference
The Annual National Conference of The Church Network is held in July of each year and attendance by local Dallas members is encouraged.
TCN’s Committee of Professional Training and Standards developed a professional program of certification for church administrative leaders that have been in place since 1952. The designation of Certified Church Administrator (CCA) is given to those who complete the TCN’s certification program. CCA designation empowers you to be a better church administrator by following the national standards put in place by TCN. The certification program enables you to further your business education while acquiring knowledge and resources unique to church administration, an asset to both you and your church.
National Church Administration Day
The National Church Administration Day is a service event of local chapters to share their knowledge of accurate, current information and resources to assist Ministers and Laity in congregations with the administration of their churches.
