    Gil Stieglitz

    God the Holy Spirit brings the grace of the Lord Jesus and provides over thirty different ministries to the Christian. But the average Christian doesn’t know how to access or work with the ministries of God the Spirit of Holiness. In spite of the excesses and denials going on in parts of the church, Christians need to understand and be practiced at working with the various ministries of the Holy Spirit. This seminar may improve your connection to the Lord Jesus in dramatic ways.

    Strategy Ministry Development: Reach, Grow, Groups

    March 3, 2017 - 1:30 PM Room: WC 214

    Michael Baggett

    Michael Baggett

    It seems like every church leader is talking about small groups. But why don’t they always work? Why do people leave their groups? Why don’t they sign up in the first place? Shouldn’t the church grow after a season of small groups?

    The truth is that our culture has changed quite a bit in the last 10 years. Busyness now rules as the number one reason why people do not exercise their bodies or their souls. In this elective, we will discuss some proven methods for developing effective groups that will deepen the faith of your church members AND reach the community. We will also do some brainstorming about this “Go and make disciples, teaching them to obey…” strategy.

    With a huge passion for transformation, Michael brings unique insight and experience for developing a wide variety of ministries from married life discipleship groups to outdoor sports groups for relational evangelism. With a primary gift of leadership, Michael loves the challenge of adding mid-week transformation to weekend services.

    Why Discipleship is Broken in So Many Churches

    March 3, 2017 - 3:00 PM Room: N9

    Gil Stieglitz

    Gil Stieglitz

    The process of guiding a person from beginner to godly Christian has been lost in so many of our churches. The Church as a whole is not turning out the quality of disciples needed for this new period of hostility to the gospel, especially leaders. We have seen people come to a church for five years and still remain the same whiny, self-focused, angry, unchanged person they were when they came in. This is a problem—a big problem. Why has discipleship broken down and how do we fix it?

    In this seminar, we will examine a discipleship path that works for most churches in our modern world, transforming believers into thriving members of the body. We will explore the four key discipleship cycles that contain the secrets to getting a person growing and keeping them growing. We will also detail five specific actions that can change a small group into a transformative experience.

    Spiritual Warfare Basics

    March 4, 2017 - 8:00 AM Room: N9

    Gil Stieglitz

    Gil Stieglitz

    Today’s current events, twisted morality, and negativity clearly establish an increase in Spiritual Warfare at a level of intensity that demands our attention. More people are facing an increased level of temptation like they have never faced before; oppression and pure evil is visible everywhere. God has given us exactly what we need to win these types of spiritual battles. In this seminar, we will discuss the biblical basics of winning against the various battles we are facing now and will face in the future. God wants us to choose to follow His plan for a great life of meaning and purpose. We can choose righteous deeds to practice and move towards, and avoid evil deeds that lead to chaos and destruction. This class will help you understand the difference and how to escape the snare of the devil (2 Timothy 2:24-26).
