Workshop Session 1: Discipleship Practices that Grow Us in Personal Holiness and in Missional Holiness
All of us long to draw closer to the Father and to reflect His nature and goodness! At the same time, we also want to bear witness to the world by how we live so that others may catch glimpses of our Father in heaven who calls everyone to Himself. Come learn a variety of empowering practices that enable you to grow in personal holiness – but which are also open to your friends who are taking baby steps of discipleship in your places of mission. You will be shown a variety of tools that different churches are using today from which they are seeing tremendous fruit!
Time: Tuesday, 2:30 – 3:30pm
Location: AP Buildings - AP 6

Workshop Session 3: The Supernatural as the Key to a Missional Church and Movement
Whether you look at the early Church, church history or the modern day phenomenal moves of God in many developing world nations, it is impossible to understand them without a positive view of the Kingdom being experienced in the supernatural. For us in the West, is the decline of Christianity in our culture partly a consequence of the absence of the supernatural? This workshop will help us learn in practice from the life of Jesus – who gave the best demonstration of what is important for us to imitate in our disciple-making!
Time: Wednesday, 1:00 – 2:00pm
Location: Faith Hall - Room 372

Workshop Session 4: How Asking "Can I Pray for You?" Transforms All of Your Relationships!
As the church we are called to be agents of change wherever we live – and this is only possible as we learn to listen to Jesus in every situation, and intentionally allow His supernatural empowering to flow out through us. This session will give you both great theology and time-proven practices that you can easily train others to use!
Time: Wednesday, 2:30 – 3:30pm
Location: Faith Hall - Room 372

Workshop Session 5: How to Help Others Live Surrendered Lives by Hearing God's Voice More Clearly
As leaders in God's Kingdom we all know the importance of living a surrendered life, where we seek God's direction in every situation. This is dependent upon knowing how to hear God's voice – and yet many of us don't feel able to explain how to do this to others. This workshop will walk you through some foundational teaching on how to hear the voice of Jesus more clearly, and give you practical tools to help you lead others on the same adventure!
Time: Thursday, 8:45 – 9:45am
Location: AP Buildings - AP 6
