“Writing in the Night” with Dr. Alicia Britt Chole

Offerings aren’t awaiting oases. Whereas fast faith isolates pain, slow faith integrates pain. And it is the integration of pain that brings weight to our words. In this session, Dr. Alicia Britt Chole will share on the duet between pen and pain.

“How To Trust God With Your Dreams and Plans” with Tara Sun

We all have dreams, plans and desires for our lives and ministries. But often, those dreams and plans are met with resistance, disappointment and frustration when they don’t go our way or in our ideal time frame. Is God really good? Can He really be trusted? Where is He taking me? are all questions we’re afraid to ask.

Join Tara Sun for an honest conversation about how we can practically trust God with every piece of our stories — the ups, the downs, the joys and the setbacks. This session will encourage you to see the beauty in surrendering your story to God in exchange for the wonderful plans He has for your life. You’ll walk away with practical tools to repurpose life’s setbacks for God’s glory and move forward in faith as you pursue the dreams He’s placed in your heart.

Community Lunch

“Finding Clarity and Confidence in Your Calling” with Jordan Lee Dooley

Do you believe God has given you a calling but feel a little unsure of exactly what that’s supposed to look like or where to even start? How can you fulfill the calling on your life if the details feel a little … confusing? In this practical workshop, Jordan Dooley, a national bestselling author, top-rated podcast host and entrepreneur, will help you:

  • Overcome the fear of making the wrong decision or pursuing the “wrong thing.”
  • Take action steps in the right direction even before you see the whole plan.
  • Navigate when things don’t go according to plan or you get off track.
  • Discern what God has for YOU and what’s just a distraction.

 

“Humble Theology: Learning How To Communicate the Beauty of the Scriptures Through the Power of Humility” with Dr. Joel Muddamalle

If we want to make an eternal impact, we need to learn how to communicate eternal truths effectively and efficiently. This task can feel daunting. What if we feel unqualified? What if we make mistakes? And then there is always the danger of being overconfident. In this session, Dr. Joel Muddamalle will unpack the unexpected but necessary gift God has given us for protection, prevention and preservation — the gift of humility. You will learn how humility is central to how we read, understand and communicate the eternal truths of the Bible.
