2013 Workshops

Evangelism & Outreach: Why Aren't We Feasting More With the King?

3/8/2013

A biblical overview of God’s design for food. God meant for food to be more than sustenance. Food is used for worship, sacrifice, celebration and fellowship, beginning with the Seven Feasts or Festivals in the books of Moses. In the New Testament, Jesus sits down for a meal every day – with sinners and saints alike. He used food as metaphors for life. He taught using fishing, farming and shepherding as his basis. Therefore, we, as God’s people, should be using good food to connect with friends and neighbors, sharing God’s goodness along the way. Maybe that’s what he meant when he said to “love they neighbor.”

Evangelism & Outreach: Feeding the Hungry and the Homeless

3/8/2013

In Deuteronomy 15, we get the first biblical mandate to feed the poor. Every church in America should be doing something to feed the homeless, even if it’s one day a month. We will review the various opportunities that are available in our communities, whom we can work with as partners, with other churches, nonprofits or city and county government. That may mean food distribution to the needy, providing food for the homeless, planting community gardens or giving money to beggars on the street.

Evangelism & Outreach: Breaking Bread Together in Small Groups

3/8/2013

Want to beef up your attendance in your church’s small groups? Do like Jesus, who ate with His disciples every day, often teaching them a lesson at the table. By eating a meal together before sitting down to study God’s word, people build relationships. Jesus constantly uses food to tell his Father’s truth, and His disciples eat it up. Cook it and they will come! I share my secrets of combining a meal with studying the Bible.

Singles & Single Parents: Helping Single Parents Grieve

3/6/2010

The worst thing single parents can do is to enter the dating scene before they have found healing. Churches need to provide a healing atmosphere that includes relationships with mature Christians of the same sex, as well as sending them to divorce recovery workshops.

Singles & Single Parents: Mentoring Single Parents

3/6/2010

Single parents often come to the church after the disaster of divorce or break-up of a meaningful relationship. What they need are mature Christians - not other immature single parents - to come alongside them and see them through the dark side of their journey and into the light.

2009 Workshops

Singles & Single Parents: Dynamic Singles Groups

3/7/2009

Most single adults aren’t really into that meat-market mentality that sometimes occurs with large singles groups. Singles groups of maybe 8-10 who study the Bible on a weekly basis are the best way for singles to connect with each other. But to really make your singles Bible study dynamic is incorporating two important elements: praying for each other and serving together. That’s how Jesus did it: by hanging out with 12 guys who changed the world.

Singles & Single Parents: Single Men Serving

3/7/2009

There are three kinds of men who attend singles groups: 1) Those who are on the prowl; 2) those who are wounded from past relationships; and 3) genuinely decent guys who may or may not know the Lord. Regardless, all three say they get bored at most singles groups whose messages cater more to the touchy/feely nature of women. Instead, give men a purpose by helping them find fulfilling service. The best way to accomplish this mission is to get your single men involved with your men’s and missions’ group. Your single men will come back trained as leaders.
