Taught by Terry Lowder
Rescheduled for December 13-14, 2013
Whether we are called to foreign countries or not, Jesus has commanded all believers to go into the world. Our churches should see the harvest field in their local cities as well as the global need. Join us for this class and be equipped to establish a total-missions culture in your church.
Taught by Dr. Terry Tramel
October 18-19, 2013
You will enjoy our October School of Ministry class immensely. Of course, you will use material you glean in this class over and over in your preaching and teaching. And there is simply not a better teacher than Dr. Tramel for this class. His command of the material and passionate presentation will inspire you to higher heights in your ministry!
A Few Suggestions for Advent
Like me, you have probably lamented the fact that Christ is so far removed from Christmas in our society. I can remember years pastoring when we struggled to find creative ways to keep Christ at the center of our congregational life. I maintained that “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” but felt that I had not done enough to make that seem real.
One way that many Christians have made Christ the center of their experience is by following the liturgical calendar and celebrating Advent. Raised in a Pentecostal home, and mentored in Charismatic circles, I was unfamiliar with Advent. However, this year I feel the Lord has led me to explore it, and I have looked for some resources to help in this journey.
