Workshop Descriptions 

Grab a pen and paper and make a note of your order of preference. These descriptions are only available here!
Suffering Well: Resting in the sovereignty of God with Rachel Wassall | Why does God allow suffering in this life? What has God promised, and what has He not promised? How can I learn, like Paul to be content in any circumstance? Come and join me as we take a biblical look at trials and suffering.

Satisfied with Empty with Sally Terrell | Healing and hope after an empty womb and empty arms can actually be the gateway to experiencing an unparalleled satisfaction in Christ that can empower a life of healing and hope.

Finding Contentment in Christ Alone with Zee Leichtenberg | What does the Bible say about contentment and how can we truly be satisfied in the Christian life? We will be exploring the fourth chapter of Philippians, where Paul teaches us how to cultivate true contentment as a believer. As he writes from prison, Paul reveals that even through difficult situations, we can know that Christ is enough.

Mentoring 101 with Ursla McCarthy | Are you a people helper but don’t know what it is to truly come along side someone and be a mentor and spiritual friend? Do you think that is for everyone but you? God uses ordinary, everyday people to help connect them to an extraordinary God. In this workshop, we will go over the biblical foundations for helping one another as well as guidance on how to best guide others. Let’s be ready in season and out of season (2 Tim. 4:2-5) and get trained on relating the teachings of Scripture to people’s problems.

Launching Arrows with Mindi Heizer | From the very beginning when you are given this child with no instruction manual, to the “terrible twos” then through the teen years and beyond, we have been given an amazing privilege to prepare these “arrows” aka children to launch. These years are fill with insecurities, fears, doubts, excitement, hopes and dreams. Just as an archer carefully aims toward his target, we too can parepare, aim and launch our “arrows” into a world that needs to hear of the Saviour.

Is my husband an idol? with Jena Kittle | Is my husband an idol? The answer may surprise you. Emotions like anger, disappointment, frustration are common in marriage. We will walk through God’s Word to see how, as wives, we can guard our hearts, minds and marriages by realigning our desires.
