• Do I Really Need to Go to Sunday School 

The church’s mandate from our Lord Jesus Christ is to make disciples, “teaching them” (Matthew 28:20). Traditionally, Sunday School is the place where much of this teaching has occurred. However, recently some churches are experiencing declining attendance in Sunday School. Pastors, teachers—and even students!—may question the value of going to Sunday School. Does it really make a difference for children? Won’t teens be bored? Are adults too old to be interested in Sunday School?

These questions and more will be addressed in this informative workshop. Plus, you’ll learn easy-to-do suggestions on how to revitalize your Sunday School. And, learn how to increase your teen classes by inviting children who are living in foster care to church. This is a lively, hands-on session you won’t want to miss!

• How the Changes to Health Insurance and Tax Law Impacts Your Church 

Tax Reform has passed…what does this mean for your church?  Ministries that understand the law are saving 20-50% on their health insurance.  How?  Churches can now offer health insurance to their employees and help fund the costs through subsidies.  Other churches can offer Christian medishare programs that cost half the price of for profit health insurance programs.  Yes, things are getting better in the area of health insurance…attend this seminar and you’ll learn how.

• Equipping and Empowering Girls : Teenager to Young Adult 
We all know that girls and boys are different, and at times, have very different needs.  We also know that sometimes youth are less inclined to speak up in mixed crowds, and often hold back from sharing their true feelings around the other gender. Alongside traditional children’s and youth ministry programs, a ministry with girls is a way for girls to have the opportunity to deal with tough questions honestly and to build close relationships with each other.

• Teaching Children to Love God’s Word

The Bible tells us to, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” (Proverbs 22:6). The heart of every parent, pastor, and teacher is that the children in their home and church would fall in love with Jesus and love reading the Bible! How else will children and youth avoid the traps of illicit sexual activity, drug experimentation and abuse, and other harmful behaviors? 

How do we encourage children and youth to enjoy reading the Bible? How do we teach valuable life-saving principles to our children? What’s the best method to teach them, and what’s the best Bible translation for kids? 

One thing is sure . . . wishing, hoping, and dreaming won’t make it happen! But there is something you can do. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to begin today to impart God’s living Word into the lives of young learners. And, you’ll be surprised also to learn the one principle that you’re already practicing that’s a guarantee! Come with your questions, and leave with answers.

• Fresh Expressions: New Communities with Those We Have Yet to Meet
Established churches were at one time new communities of faith.  To fulfill our calling as Church we need to keep creating and encouraging fresh expressions of Church.  We must embrace a blended economy of Church in order to extend the faith to those who have yet to experience it.  Where to start?  We will answer this question.

•The Changing Face of Evangelism
The Changing Face of Evangelism is a workshop designed to stimulate honest dialogue around two hot topics that are driving the 21st century church, culture and tradition.  The workshop derived from an evangelistic effort of sharing the love of Jesus while walking with my wife from Desert Hot Springs to Sacramento California with a nine foot cross.  One of the glaring truths we learned on this journey is   culture and tradition determines everything from worship to the way people are evangelized. 

The first part of the workshop covers how unconditional love shifts the evangelistic experience.  It teaches that as ‘Fishers of men”, we must learn to use the appropriate bait.

If you’re interested in examining the culture and tradition of your church, come join the conversation as we learn about equipping ourselves for the new face of evangelism.
