Prayer, the Armor of God,

and the Battle

Whether you're part of a growing, thriving church or a church in desperate need of revitalization, you are in the midst of a battle--a spiritual battle.  In this seminar, we will look at what Scripture says about the spiritual battle and how prayer plays such an important role.  We will also talk at length about the armor of God in Ephesians 6 and it's connection to prayer and everyday life.

This seminar would be perfect for your leadership or your entire Body . It can be taught in a weekend setting or in a shorter version as a one-day event.

Lessons from the

Church in Acts

Join us for the birth of the early church and be reminded of God's heart and purpose of the church!  Learn the joys and sorrows of the church.  Learn the ministry and mission of the early church.  From this study leaders and the members learn who the church should be and what she should be about.

This seminar could be for your leaders or for your entire Body.  It can be done in a one-day setting or in a weekend retreat/seminar setting.

The Essentials of Prayer

Prayer may be the greatest indicator of our dependence on God and is a must-factor in any church coming back to "life!"  No church is healthy without a vibrant prayer life.  So, we'll look at the "Model Prayer" of Jesus' and the truths and principles behind each part.  This "model prayer" becomes a perfect outline for the elements of prayer that should make up our own prayer life.  This seminar is a good start for those who are new to prayer, those who are timid in their prayer life, or those who just want to "get back to the basics."  

This is perfect for a Friday & Saturday retreat or it could be used as a one-day event on Saturday or Sunday.

Lessons from 

the Old Testament

The Old Testament is filled with amazing lessons for the church--whether you're looking at the life of Joseph or Joshua, or looking at the time of the Judges, or walking with Joshua into the Promised Land. 

 

This seminar can be a Sunday morning and evening event, a one-day event with multiple sessions, or even a full weekend event.  The choice is yours. The more time we have, the more truths we can share.
