6 Foundational Habits & Practices of Jesus
“Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked” (1 John 2:6 ESV). If we are to obey this command in 1 John, we need to examine the earthly life of Jesus and discover what exactly were His priorities, how did He “walk”.  In this breakout we will identify 6 foundational habits and practices that are seen in Jesus’ life. We will discuss how they can be applied to our lives to help us make and multiply disciples like Jesus.

How to Mobilize People to Serve
In this session we will discuss better ways to equip leaders to mobilize people from seat and study to works of service. We’ll answer questions such as: How can you help group members step into the most thrilling part of the Christian life (Service)? What obstacles prevent people from serving? How can we help people overcome obstacles to serving?

Self Care Made Easy
More than just stress management; “self-care” is stewarding what God has given you by taking care of yourself—heart, body, mind, and soul. With the current trends of high stress levels and of burnout by those in ministry, it has never been more important than now to take care of yourself so you can take care of others. Proper self-care helps you perform at your best, supports overall wellbeing, and manages the stress in your life.

Human trafficking, abuse and extreme poverty are three evil giants of evil that plague our world. The church is desperately needed in the fight. Jesus is the only real answer to the plight of those in such great need.

Reaching Out to Families Affected by Incarceration
One group of people often overlooked by those in the church are the families of incarcerated individuals. The emotional pain of a loved one’s incarceration is felt by children and parents alike, especially at Christmas. Learn specific needs of families like these in your community and how you can help through the ministry of Angel Tree.

Reaching, Raising and Releasing Men 
Research in both the secular and Christian arenas show the overwhelming influence of a man on a family. As a dad goes, so goes the family. If this is true, then why don’t we invest as much or more time, energy, and resources on ministry to men than we do to children, students and women? In this breakout, we will share how to not only reach men in and outside of your church, and to raise them up in their walk with Christ, but to also them to their God-given calling.
