The grand sweep of Scripture reveals a blessing story. Since our fall, God has been on a massive re-blessing project in the world, culminating in Jesus, God’s blessing in the flesh. In Christ, we discover that the deep meaning of blessing is not “my life my way” but communion with the Triune God and one another.

The neglected art of blessing God can vibrantly enhance our participation in the Triune life. Praise advances intimacy. Communion deepens as we take up our unique role in voicing all creation’s praise and enthroning the Triune God in our worship.

How do we really know God loves us? Let’s take a hard look at why it’s important for Jesus to be the reference point for all things divine and human when it comes to receiving the gospel for ourselves and proclaiming it to others.

This workshop will examine the true history of our denomination beginning from the late 1800s to the
present day. How did this denomination get its start? What was the first name for the denomination (hint:
it was not the Radio Church of God)? Where did Herbert W. Armstrong really get his doctrines? How did
we come to be where we are today? Join us for an eye-opening exploration of the true history of Grace
Communion International.

This workshop will examine the ancient Hebrew understanding of the world (cosmology) and how the imagery from this understanding provides a background for a better
understanding of the Bible. We will seek to find answers to such questions as: Why was
there a talking serpent in the Garden of Eden? Why is Satan called a “dragon”? Why did
Jesus walk on water (couldn’t he have swam, flown, or just appeared)? What were the
tower of Babel and Jacob’s ladder? Why will there be no sea in the New Heavens and
New Earth? These and other intriguing Bible questions will be explored in this workshop.

In this seminar we will discuss the question “If the old man is ‘gone,’ as this verse
seems to indicate, then why is he still hanging around?!” What are we to think of
sin as Christians, and how do we walk and teach without falling prey to an over-realized or under-realized
eschatology?

This seminar helps us to spy the critical differences between cooperation and
participation in Christ and how to avoid dehumanizing people or the opposite,
“throwing people back on themselves,” for salvation and sanctification.

Blessing belongs to the story of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. Receiving,
returning, and reflecting the blessing love of the Triune God lie at the heart of
participation in Christ. Thus, this threefold blessing dynamic forms the heart of
day to day ministry in the church. We will consider what blessing looks like in practical application.

When Jesus returned to heaven, he did not shed our humanity. He kept it, taking
human being where it had never gone before: into the heart of the Triune life of
God. In Jesus ascended, we see our future, and that makes all the difference in
how we do ministry today.

Family ministry is more than just large events and Sunday morning handouts that end up in the church
parking lot. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the best ways to create a church environment that encourages
parents (and other adults who bring children to church) to partner with your children’s ministry team as you
raise up children in the faith together. We’ll discuss the common pitfalls that family ministry models fall into
as well as simple ways you can make your ministry more family friendly.
