Click here for a concise outline of a seminar. The apostle Paul wrote to ordinary people like you: “I am earnestly calling you to walk in conformity with the calling to which you were called.” (Ephesians 4:1). He is saying, you have a call, now get to it… walk, act and live in a way that matches with the incredible worth and weightiness of this calling that YOU have been given. Do you know God’s call? Knowing the Lord’s call is crucial to being who God intended you to be. What is the Lord calling you to do? What is your unique part? Where is your mission field and how are you bringing Jesus’ rule and reign to this mission field?
At a seminar, you will have the luxury of INTENTIONAL TIME to seek and listen for God’s call. The “Ordinary People” seminar has six main sessions… each with teaching, prayerful reflection and comfortable conversation. The seminar is adaptable for various ages and settings.
