Adventures in Faith

This workshop will encourage you to stand in the promises of God, walk in faith, encounter His love and learn how faith and love are tangible realities!
Made to Lead

The Bible is filled with examples of how we were made to lead. Leadership is a get to, not a have to. The blessings that result from answering the call to lead are life-changing for those who answer 'yes'. Leadership is not a title; it is the result of serving in an honest, thoughtful way that utilizes wisdom to set a course. This workshop will help you gain skills to elevate your thinking and view things as God intends. You can reach your full potential in glorifying God with your talents!

Walking in the Spirit - Learning to Keep No Record of Wrongs
Brian and Marcia Ridpath, Math Professor, NCAA Consultant
The Bible gives a beautiful illustration for married love - a love that keeps no record of wrongs. How do we cultivate and nourish a love like this in our marriages? We use the gifts that God has hand-selected for each one of us to reflect His character - His Fruit of the Spirit. By walking in the Spirit, we can awaken to a deeper love for one another. Join us as we laugh, be real and explore the role spiritual gifts play as we grow in grace.
