Infusing Prayer Throughout the Congregation

Led by: Fr. John Bailey, Fr. Jim Morehead, Deacon Laura Wicker, Mrs. Marian Kreithen & Mrs. Sharon Forrest

Come learn how to transform your congregation into a praying community by introducing prayer into every part of its life.

Practical Prayer Movements

Led by: Fr. Dennett Buettner

Throughout church history, God's people have discovered over and over again the vital significance of regular, sustained movements of extraordinary prayer to catalyzing and enabling people movements to Jesus. Prayer is perhaps the single most vital element in our carrying out of the Great Commission.

What is Spiritual direction?

Led by: Fr. Jack Gabig

This workshop will explore the ancient discipline of spiritual direction for the 21st century. What it is. How it works. What it has to do with growth in discipleship, and the life of prayer. What to look for in a spiritual director.

Discipleship Praying

Led by: Fr. Keith Almond

This workshop begins and ends with giving ourselves and our will to the Lord. As we prayerfully invoke the presence of Christ in our lives, then we "apprentice" being conformed into the image of Christ.

Saturday - 1:15 p.m.*

Deepening Our Prayer Lives Through Meditation

Led by: Fr. Steve Palmer

This workshop is directly related to growing in our love and obedience to Jesus through a deeper prayer life.

Waking Up the Prayers of the People

Led by: Deacon Barb McMillen, Mrs. Cindy Thomas & Deacon Nancy Cain McCombe

While the people of God praying for each other, the Church and the world should be exciting, Prayers of the People is often an uninspiring part of our liturgy. This workshop will offer some ways of revitalizing that aspect of our worship. 

Coaching as a discipleship tool

Led by: Mrs. Jenni Bartling

Coaching is a valuable, but often overlooked, tool in the discipleship process. Incorporating coaching deepens the discipler/discipled relationship, and can accelerate the spiritual development of those being discipled. Jesus used questions to help his followers discover where they were in their faith journey (Matthew 16), how committed they were to spiritual growth (John 5), and the resources they had to serve the Kingdom (Mark 6).

Recovery & Discipleship

Led by: Deacon Harold Hicks

In the past 8 years, we have witnessed the power of Jesus Christ in transforming the lives of people who have been in and out of recovery programs, prison, and rehab centers many times over. Rick Warren, Saddleback Church proclaims that more than 75% of newcomers to his church enter through the Celebrate Recovery program and learn to live lives of freedom and becoming lay ministers for the future. In Rick Warren's words..."Everybody needs Jesus. Celebrate Recovery is thoroughly evangelistic in nature. In fact, the first time I took our entire church through this program over 500 people prayed to receive Christ on a single weekend. It was an amazing spiritual harvest. And during the ten-week series that I preached to kick-off this program, our attendance grew by over 1,500 people! Don’t be surprised if this program becomes the most effective outreach ministry in your church. "

*When you register for convention, you will be asked to choose one workshop for each time slot.
