May He produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to Him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen”. (NLT)

Breakout Sessions

The Church’s Response to Depression and Suicide – Krista Fox

No-one is immune from depression…sadness, loneliness, and brokenness can affect all of us. How the church, and its ministry workers, responds to those who are hurting and depressed is important to caring for those we minister to. This session will look at how the church can respond to the very real issues in the church of depression and suicide in an effective, caring and Biblical way. 

Ministry to Gen Z – Nikki McCauley 

What comes to your mind when you think of Gen Z? Nikki will challenge you to think differently about coming alongside this often misunderstood generation, particularly in the realm of ministry. Difficulties come with ministering to Gen Z, but have you considered the vast potential? Join us for a conversation about the statistics and the how-to’s of reaching our Gen Z friends.

Fully Equipped for Marriage and Ministry – Jen Morris

Every woman has her story of how she came to be in ministry; every married woman also has her tale of how she entered into marriage.  The beginning of each story is astoundingly unique, but all of our stories converge at a point.  As married women serving our community, we get to stand in the balance of marriage and ministry and seek the Lord’s wisdom and strength to fulfill our calling.  Above all, we seek His heart for how to honor Him with our days.  In this world full of responsibilities and opportunities, where is our focus to be placed? How can we know what the Lord is calling us to do? What if being married AND in ministry feels like more than you have to give right now?  Or maybe you are feeling the Lord’s call to offer yourself to Him in a new way this season? In this workshop, we will look into the Word for answers and discuss practical ways to live being Fully Equipped for Marriage and Ministry.

Discovering, Developing and Exercising your Spiritual Gifts – Brenda Leavenworth

Spiritual gifts play a huge role in our Christianity and are foundational to our faith. As the Holy Spirit distributes these gifts, it is our responsibility and privilege to exercise them wherever He leads, according to His prompting and will. Come get a full understanding of your unique, God-given abilities, as we deeply explore discovering, developing, and exercising our spiritual gifts.

Creating and Sustaining Ministry Culture – Rosemary Cady

Culture is everywhere, and all of our churches have their own culture: our ways of speaking, thinking, and behaving. Everyone is affected by the culture they experience at your church. Is your culture what you desire it to be? Is it Christ-centered? Come and learn how to identify your church’s culture and how to shape it.
