FINISHING STRONG: DEVELOPING THE CONTOURS OF A FINISHING SPIRIT

Beginning August 10, 2022

Register here for this class. You will receive weekly class notes and updates, via e-mail.

YouTube link for this workshop

This Prophetic Life Workshop focuses on living a significant life all the way to the finish line. In our time together, we will explore the contours of a finishing spirit, leaving a legacy, dealing with imperfections, cultivating heavenly mindedness, and how to carry passion as we age. FINISHING STRONG will equip us in living a sacramental theology, creating a living awareness that we live in a God-bathed world. It is the presence of God that will enable us to say with the Apostle Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). I pray that this workshop will help us all to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and to Finish Strong.

This Prophetic Life Workshop will seek to give you a clear picture and concrete guidance for cultivating genuine maturity in your relationship with God. The Triune God created us for intimate fellowship, partnership, and friendship. In this workshop, Pastor Steve will guide us toward a life that brings joy to the heart of our heavenly Father.

God’s Word calls us to a life lived in union with God, filled with His Spirit, and abiding in His Son. As we grow deeper in God, we begin to experience His presence, His peace, and His power.

If you are hungry for something more, join us in this Prophetic Life Workshop as we explore our capacities to be filled with God.

EMBERS TO FLAME: IGNITING YOUR LIFE THROUGH PRAYER

January 12 – March 30, 2022

YouTube link for this workshop.

God is intimately with us, and He is also infinitely beyond us. It is prayer alone that can reconcile these two polarities. Through prayer we begin to experience both God’s intimate presence and transcendent dominion. Consistent prayer helps us to feel companioned by God.

Ps. 62:8 Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.

Prayer is a key that opens the door to a secret chamber of your heart where your true life is hidden with Christ in God (See Colossians 3:3-4). In prayer we shift the center of living from self-consciousness to self-surrender. As a tree torn from the soil, as a river separated from its source, the human soul wanes  when it is detached from God through the absence of prayer. Without prayer, we are like the scattered rungs of a broken ladder. To pray is to become a ladder on which our lives and others can mount up to God. And He also comes down the ladder to us.

This Prophetic Life Workshop will explore how to experience a satisfying life of prayer that leads you into ever deepening companionship with God.

BEDROCK: FAITH THAT LASTS FOREVER

August 11 – October 13, 2021

YouTube link for this workshop.

This class will address the issue of faith. What is faith? How does it work? Why is faith important? These and many other questions concerning our faith and its nature will be explored over this semester. The world we live in will trivialize our lives unless we learn to “walk by faith and not by sight.”

This class is aimed at deepening our intimacy with God through cultivating a bedrock faith in our soul. “Without faith it is impossible to please God, for those who come to Him must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Faith is a bedrock substance that increases God’s pleasure and presence in our lives.

SPRITUAL FORMATION: BECOMING LIKE JESUS

April 7 – May 26, 2021

YouTube link for this workshop.

Spiritual formation is not a quick-fix, a one-size-fits-all, or a controllable technique. Disciples are hand-crafted, not mass produced.

Authentic spirituality must touch our lives in meaningful and practical ways. During this course, Pastor Steve will bring a comprehensive approach to spiritual growth, revealing a number of ways that God conforms us to the “image of His Son.” Ultimately, all spiritual formation is about learning to be loved and to love the Living One we call God.

LIVING A GOD-FILLED LIFE

January 6 – March 31, 2021

YouTube link for this workshop.

Through His Spirit and His Word, God continually calls us to be filled…to be filled with his Word (Col. 3:16), to be filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:18), to be filled with Christ (Gal. 4:19), and to be filled to the fulness of God (Eph. 3:19). Our calling as followers of Christ leads us to experience God’s presence and anointing until our cup overflows (Ps. 23:5).

Would you say that your cup is overflowing? Is your life bathed in the presence of God? What would your life be like if you were filled to all the fullness of God? How would your life be different?

This Prophetic Life Workshop will guide and inspire you to experience all that God is offering. Augustine said, “We come to God by love, not by navigation.” Spiritual formation is about removing the things that hinder love. If you are longing to increasingly experience God’s nearness, this workshop is just for you.
