Bible & Theology I & II
Drinking Deeply from God's Word
Drinking Deeply from God's Word
Description:Do you desire to make time for Bible study, but struggle to actually sit down and do it? Do you spend time in God's Word, but come away feeling bored or frustrated? Would you like to dive deep into the Word of God and come up with your thirst for truth quenched, your spirit revived, and your head swirling with the mysteries of God? We will discuss approaches I have used during my last 15 years in ministry and some of my favorite insights from the Word of God.
O Come, O Come Emmanual: Jesus, Israel, and the Gospel
Description:We probably sang this favorite Christmas hymn in the last few week--"ransom captive Israel" and "Rod of Jesse?" But did we get it? And did we notice that the song itself shares the Gospel? Using insights from Bible professor Scot McKnight's new book, The King Jesus Gospel, (plus others), we'll explore again how the Gospel we share today relates to Israel.
Becoming What God Intended One Womans Journey out of Homosexuality
Description:Compassion and hope: These are the tools needed both for someone struggling with same sex attraction and those who want to help others overcome. Andrea will share stories from her journey out of homosexulatiy and into what God intended: wholeness. Our format will be more intimate, focusing on story and questions, rather than lecture.
Being Real: Our Journeys through Depression and Anxiety
Description:Neil and Nick aren't good at much; but they are good at being depressed and anxious. This workshop will be a candid conversation about their experiences as they have struggled with depression and anxiety over the years. This workshop will explore how we connect with God in the midst of the dark places in our lives that stem from depression and anxiety.
Emotions: What Do We Do with Them?
Description:The world often tells us that we should let our emotions guide our lives. The message of the Church is often, "You can't trust your emotions; they'll lead you astray... After all, Jeremiah says that 'the heart is deceitful above all things'!" What does God actually think of our emotions? Why did he give them to us? And what does he want us to do with them?
Description:Are Twentysomethings expecting too much of work? They were raised to believe they could do anything, and now they're demanding more from work than previous generations ever did. Will they change the world or have to lower their sights?
Tragedies and the Truth About God's Love
Description:Do you have a hard time understanding or believing God's Love in the face of hard times, tragedy, and many other apparent contradictions? Do you ever wonder why God does what He does? If you are like me, you don't always see a loving God behind these actions. We're going to dive into the truth about God and HIs Love, and figure out why this understanding is crucial to our walks with Him.
Stand Up, Stand Out, and Spark Change
Description:Every campus has that guy who calls down hell, fire, and brimstone on the drunks and fornicators. This approach to reaching students with the message of the gospel puts people on defence. They want to fight back. But what if were able to get around defenses and engage campus in a creative way, sparking curiosity, sparking conversations, sparking change, and ultimately, sparking the campus.
Passing It On: A Model for Multiplying Leadership
Description:It's one thing to lead. It's a whole different thing to teach others to lead. And it's even crazier to teach others to teach others how to lead. Whether you're leading or learning to lead, let's talk about the fundamentals of how to pass on what you know. Classics like 2Tim 2:1 and the four coaching levels. Perfect for small group leaders, coarches, or apprecntices, and/or those who want to be campus staff.
