    Get equipped to address your No. 1 Unspoken Need! The facts are in, it’s not just ‘out there in the world.’ Half of Christian men, even pastors, are trapped in the cycle of toxic sex from the pornification of today’s culture. The harvest is passive men, devastated wives, broken families and derailed destinies. Yet, some courageous churches are dealing openly, yet tactfully with this silent plague, offering compassionate help, hope & healing. Churches reap bold, brave, giving men, restored marriages and families. Get equipped to gracefully and tactfully address the real needs of your members, your community, and become a hero in the process. Come learn how.

    Samantha Trimble

    Do you have a elementary student? Do you minister to elementary students? Do you ever come in contact with elementary students? Then this workshop is for you! Early school years significantly shape a child's formation, spiritual and otherwise. As we interact with elementary children, especially those we are in a relationship with and responsible for in some way, we need to be intentional about understanding how they are growing & understanding the world. Doing so can inform the way that we help them understand their own spirituality and better help them to meet the God who is already speaking to their hearts. This workshop is especially suited for those are looking to build into the home as the primary place where faith is lived out and nurtured.

    Maintaining honor and avoiding shame is the cultural world view of the majority of the world while in western countries most people view the world through guilt and innocence. Many people from honor shame cultures come to the US to study and work here so it is important for the church to learn how to minister to honor shame cultures.

Join me in learning how to share our faith with people from an honor shame culture.
