As the end of summer approaches, we have one more week to offer all those who want to bring Light and Life to the world they live in. We are here to help you understand the message of the Bible, practically work through difficult passages and invite and help you into a relationship with Jesus Christ that allows you to live the life that He created you to live. To do that – we ALL need to be EQUIPPED!
We’ll spend a great week together relaxing, enjoying activities and worshipping. Through Bible teaching, conversation, reflection and the Spirit’s inspiration we’ll gain the insight and understanding needed to be ’servants of God thoroughly equipped for every good work’ (2 Tim. 3:17).
Bible Teachers and Topics
Derek Burnside – Equipped to Serve
God has good works prepared in advance for all of us to get stuck in to, meaning our lives will bear fruit that lasts into eternity. That’s exciting – and sometimes a bit scary. Good news, though; through the Spirit he has given us just the right tools for the job. Derek’s sessions will explore spiritual gifts: what they are, how we get them, how we know what ours are, and how to use them faithfully, biblically, consistently and fruitfully.
Seidel Abel Boanerges – How to Answer Tough Questions
As Christians we often face tough questions about our faith. Come and explore with Seidel some of the toughest questions about the Christian faith such as the existence of God, the reliability of the Bible, are miracles real? Or why does God allow pain and suffering? The teaching along with the discussions and case studies will equip you to be confident of your Christian faith and to share the gospel with non-believers with coherence and relevance.
Jemma Wraight – The Heart of a Pioneer
Jemma will help us rediscover the role of the Church in a fast changing culture. We will discuss how the people of Jesus keep distinctive missional values in a world full of change and uncertainty. We will explore an incarnational approach to ministry and creative models of church expression – which form Jesus-centered communities. We hope this will stir in our hearts our responsibility to equip, support and encourage ministry leaders in our context. Through these sessions together we pray we will be inspired and motivated about our role in the church and how God wants to use us to build His kingdom. Let’s remember God has no backup plan – we are it!!
