Bring this unique and powerful training workshop to your church.
   
Workshop Description

A much needed workshop for the body of Christ. Don’t miss your opportunity to participate in this training workshop that has made such a tremendous impact on others. 

This workshop is a hands-on teaching session on serving in the church. It is for every church member, from the pastor to the lay member.

This equipping workshop will help to strengthen your church and you. It will refresh and encourage you in areas where your commitment may have lessened and inspire you where you feel unequipped to respond to the ministry area God has called you to serve.

This workshop is also to help re-focus you in areas where you feel burned out or overworked. It is to help bring restoration and to provide a wealth of information to assist you in rising to the challenge of being an effective and consistent laborer in our Father’s vineyard.

Come and experience a refreshing and equipping day as we train and fellowship with one another.

BRING THIS TRAINING TO YOUR CHURCH
This equipping workshop is one of a kind. Full of Scriptures, we walk you through flowing together as a team. From your church's choir to its ministers, this anointed training will transform your ministry.

Truly a pastor’s dream is to have a unified team working alongside him to expand the kingdom of God. However, many will attest that it is easier imagined than attained.

Just as the frustration to reach team mentality is experienced in corporations it also penetrates churches. Yet, teamwork remains crucial because no matter how great the vision a lack of oneness can hamper if not abort it.

 Within each topics are subjects such as Effective Teams Start With the Pastor, Team Members Must Know and Understand Their Roles, "I" Must Become "We", Submission is Required in Teamwork, Looking for Hidden Treasures, Forming a Balanced Team, Church Politics Destroy Teamwork, Praising Team Members, Growing as a Team, and more.

Pastorsbring your administrative staff, deacons, board, ministers, ushers, and choir  to this unique equipping workshop.

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Gifts of the Holy Spirit Workshop Name: Gifts of the Holy Spirit

A one-day workshop to help to enhance your understanding of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and their operations.

 

 

Product Description "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.  Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.  And there are differences of administrations but the same Lord.  And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal."  I Cor. 12:1, 4-7

Do you know that before Jesus ascended on high He gave gifts unto men? (Eph 4). Also in Corinthians and Romans we are instructed of others gifts that God has imparted into us to aid us in expanding the kingdom and meeting the needs of others.

However, do we know them when we see them?

Do we know how stir the gifts inside of us?

Do we understand their operation?

This workshop walks you through body ministry, aiding you in understanding the purpose and operations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit as well as how to flow in the gift(s) God has imparted in you.

ARE YOU READY TO SOAR?

Don’t miss your opportunity to participate in this one to two-day workshop that will propel the leaders within your church to reach their maximum potential as a leaders.

This training is also offered as one of our on-site trainings.

 

Soaring as a Leader is a workshop geared at equipping you to be the leader God has called you to be. It is an equipping workshop that will take you to the next level in your leadership, because your ministry cannot rise above your ability to lead.

This often leads to discouragement, discontentment and frustration, and often a job not done. Soaring as Leader will help you move from just having the position (title) to knowing how to shoulder the responsibility.

Topics You May Choose:

It is More Than a Title

The Characteristics of a Great Leader: (this covers subtopics such as Being Called, Not Operating Manipulation, Humility, Can Handle Criticism, Being Mentally Tough, Self-Control, and more.)

Assuming Too Much

Bringing Out the Best in People

Leadership Styles

Workshops are catered to meet your church's needs.

How sad it would be to live your entire life with a crushed dream and an unrealized purpose.  This awesome, thought provoking and life changing workshop will help open your eyes and compel you to pursue your dream.  

 

What is it that God is calling you to do?

 

 

DreamKillers affect not only our individual dreams but the corporate vision of churches.

  • Toxic Relationships

  • Slothfulness

  • Ungodly Counsel
