Pride is at the heart of all sin. It's what destroyed King Uzziah's legacy and has plagued all of humanity since the fall in the garden of Eden. C.S. Lewis says, "Pride is an instrument strung, but preferring to play itself because it thinks it knows the tune better than the Musician." Each of us must address our own pride in order to exult Christ. If we refuse, the consequences could be devastating! [Donny Macaluso - Calvary Baptist Church, Youth and Families Pastor]
This workshop will begin with a discussion of the background of the term “Dark Night of the Soul,” it’s original meaning and use, as well as it’s modern day equivalent. Principles for growing and persevering through the Dark Night of the Soul will be developed. These principles will then be applied for that experience as well as other “trials” we may encounter in the midst of our daily lives. Finally, the workshop will conclude with a discussion of how these trials can work toward the renewal and transformation of our minds as described by Paul in Romans 12:2. [Dr. Jeffrey Barrows - Grace Haven House, Founder]
Is there something that is hindering your pursuit of holiness? We will identify factors that inhibit our spiritual growth and keep us daily struggling with sin. Typically, this includes any strong desire that contends with our relationship and service for the Lord. Our goal will be to evaluate our lives in light of Scripture and learn practical ways to defeat the negative aspects of sin that control us. [Dr. David Gaffner - Grace Global Ministries, Chairman]
Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and God instructs us to honor Him with it. We will explore together in God's Word the appetites or desires He has built into us, especially the desire to eat. What does a holy God desire of us in this area of our lives? We will discuss feasting and fasting and health, but most of all seek to be obedient followers of Christ and to bring all of our appetites and desires under His control for His glory. [Dr. Charles Kratz - Oakhill Medical Associates, Family Doctor]
The Bible gives husbands the responsibility to: Learn his wife -- Love his wife -- Lead his wife. In this session we will explore the hinderances, how to’s and happy endings involved in pursuing these priorities! [Tracy Figley - Strong Tower Christian Media, President & CEO]
