Workshops (please select ONLY 2 workshops to attend)

  • DiscipleMaking in College - Rashelle Porter

    The word “disciple” shows up over 260 times in the Bible, which probably means it’s important. Jesus gives us a wonderful example of what discipleship looks in the everyday context, so let’s explore it and see how we can model it in our everyday lives as well.

  • Be Strong in Grace: Prayer and the Bible in Your Daily Life - Michael Torres

    Prayer and the Word of God have always been foundational in the believer’s daily life with God. But if you’re like me, prayer can be a struggle, and the Bible can be confusing, intimidating, and seem disconnected from my daily life. What is this practice of a “quiet time” supposed to look like? And why do we need these daily practices, anyway? If time in the Bible and prayer feels like a struggle for you, or you’re unsure how to teach this to others, come join me to explore the heart of this practice and learn a simple model that I hope will help you experience God’s grace as you journey to know Christ and become more like Him.

  • Intentional disciple making after graduation - Scott Grant

    What does your personal ministry look like after college? Learn how to influence co-workers, neighbors and family members after graduating. Hear stories of failures and success as we talk about walking with Jesus and ministering to others.

  • Biblical Decision-Making - Mark Scaffidi

    An alternative to the magic 8 ball, flipping a coin, and judging whether a vibe is good or bad. Each of us is faced with thousands of decisions each day, some hold massive consequences, and some are simple. No matter what kind of decision you are facing, they can bring a lot of anxiety. As someone who once spent 45 minutes in the deodorant aisle at Target, Mark has spent a lot of time thinking about making decisions, and is convinced that God has something to say about each decision of our life. In this workshop we will look at stories of people forced to make life changing decisions, small everyday choices, and even a few course corrections. As we learn from the past, we will develop a framework for making our own decisions in the future. Expect to walk away with a plan for deciding what deodorant you will wear, who you will marry, and what career path you will take.

  • The Unfinished Task: Global Missions for a New Generation - Jason Stuhrenberg

    The efforts of the Church aimed at finishing the Great Commission in our day are commendable. But the task of making disciples of all nations remains unfinished and the need for new missionaries is increasingly desperate. So what are missions? What does it mean to be a missionary? And what does Jesus want from me when it comes to making disciples of all nations? Come explore the Bible, hear from Jesus, and (I’m 87% sure) have some fun as we look to ignite a new vision for missions in our generation.

  • The Gospel is Not Safe - Madison Thielen

    Do you long for safety? Do you want to make sure everything is going to 'be okay'? Is your life characterized by fear? Come and discover why following Jesus is worth the risk in the midst of the unknown.

  • Is the Bible Trustworthy? - Pastor Rustin

    Christians describe the Bible as the Word of God, but can we trust this Word? Some claim that the Bible you hold in your hands today is not the same as was originally written. In this seminar we will investigate why we can trust the Bible, from both its history of transmission and its internal consistency.

  • The Gospel and Sexuality - Buck Wilson

    We will explore Biblical sexuality and how it applies to our faith. To see how the good news of the Gospel is good news to our sexuality!
