SEXUALITY: A THEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE

Hannah Bloomquist
Hannah Bloomquist

In this workshop we will unpack a theological perspective of God’s design for sexuality and how it informs our practical response. Developing a deeper understanding of his design helps us to see his created intent for sexuality as a beautiful, whole, fulfilling, and protective. Due to our culture’s polarizing perspectives regarding issues of sexuality, we will inevitably encounter various questions and conversations about this topic. We have the privilege and burden to study God’s design for sexuality so we might effectively disciple those we are shepherding toward a healthy and biblical practice.


SOUL CARE: AN INVITATION TO PAUSE 

Holly Bosier
Holly Bosier

As leaders, we sometimes find the demands of our ministries and expectations of others have outpaced our capacity to give, and we recognize that our own spiritual health is no longer flourishing. While we know our ministry to others will suffer without the recalibration of our souls, many of us struggle to find our way back to a thriving, intimate relationship with the Lord. Workshop participants will receive the opportunity to slow down and be led into the presence of the Lord through Scripture meditation, reflection, and prayer. Participants will receive guidance in identifying the greatest areas of personal need to bring before the Lord for renewal and restoration. 


Fear, Inadequacy, & Calling

Emmanuella Carter
Emmanuella Carter

It’s normal to feel afraid of things God calls us to. But what do you do when fear drives you away from the call? How do you embrace leading when you are overly consumed with your inability. Whatever our fears and insecurities, they do not negate our calling. In this workshop Emmanuella Carter will take us through scriptures to help us step fully into our calling even in the face of our fears.


Warfare Praying: How to Live and Pray in Victory

Judy DunaganJudy Dunagan

This workshop will provide practical tools for fighting the good fight against the enemy as we seek to live out the calling God has placed on our lives as ministry leaders. The enemy is always about defeating and discouraging us, especially in the areas of our calling and gifting.

EMBRACING UNCOMFORTABLE

Deb Gorton
Dr. Deb Gorton

Every day we face choices to live congruent with our Christ-centered values or fall prey to the misplaced expectations the world is offering us. Living fully on purpose requires adjusting our mindset to see the powerful impact of embracing the uncomfortable in order to stand firm in the conviction of who God created us to be no matter our season, circumstance, or relationship-status. This workshop will equip you to: 

  • Recognize your choices and what will move you inline with your purpose and values 
  • Develop the courage to radically accept your situation as it is
  • Take the steps to push beyond your fears and into your purpose zone

DEEP SMALL GROUPS IN A SHALLOW WORLD

Kristin Jaconsen
Kristin Jacobsen

Our world has never been more connected. Social Media has made it possible to know everything and nothing about each other. These superficial connections are insufficient and leave women feeling empty. Enter small groups. Whether meeting online or in-person, small groups offer women an opportunity to grow in their relationship to God and deeply connect with those around them. In this workshop, Kristin will present the essentials needed to create an environment where women can be themselves, practical ways to lead fruitful group discussions, and how to avoid common pitfalls of a failed small group. 


ANXIETY AND LONELINESS IN A HOARDING HEART

Roslyn Jordan
Roslyn Jordan

Hoarding is defined as difficulty parting with possessions because of their perceived value. When we think about hoarding generally we think about material possessions. But, do you ever think about hoarding emotions? This workshop will look at hoarding anxiety, building fortresses of safety that ultimately become caves of loneliness and decluttering to live freer and cultivate a deeper connection with God and others.

Confident Leadership: Deeper Waters, Bigger Waves

Cathie Ostapchuk
Cathie Ostapchuk

Our post-Christian world calls for leadership that understands women, the church, and our challenging culture. Leadership that is forged in the deepest waters of the soul can be carried with strength and dignity to crest the waves of challenging church and ministry environments. As women are wondering about their place in the church, we need to be deeply anchored in biblical truth about the Source of our identity, our value, our power, our voice and our positioning. We must then inspire women we lead to bravely go against the tide of conformity and lead in their spheres with confidence. 


Messages that Move: Proclaiming God's Word with Passion, Power, and Precision

MINISTERING IN THE SMALL PLACES

Olivia Ruhl
Olivia Ruhl

Jesus commissioned his followers to go forth and make disciples of every tribe, tongue, and nation…this includes the small towns of Peotone, IL, Dennison, OH, Alton, NH, and the hundreds of other small places of which you’ve likely never heard. Sometimes, however, both church and culture can give off the perception that the smaller the town the less significant or the less valuable. This is far from true and unbiblical! In this workshop, we will talk about the big impact the local church can have in the small places, the big responsibility to equip those in your local church to be ministers of the Word in the small places and the big Gospel that is sufficient to meet the needs of the small places.


Discipling Gen-Z

Christy Spader
Christy Spader

Culture is changing. We must be mindful of cultural perspectives as we faithfully answer the call of Christ to make disciples. How do cultural shifts affect our discipleship? How do we engage unfamiliar perspectives? Crucial to understanding this cultural shift is understanding Generation Z. In this Word-centered workshop we will look deeply at biblical disciple-making and unpack key needs of this next generation.
