Join us for a day of fellowship, equipping and prayer, so we can be Jesus' witnesses as He calls Canada back to himself.
We will be hearing from Bob Beasley - VP of Int'l Ministry for Bible League Canada. For more information please see our brochure.
Are we really in some kind of spiritual warfare?
Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12 that “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” What is he talking about, and what else does the Bible reveal about our role and God's role in the struggle against the world, the flesh and the devil?
When we engage in the work of kingdom advancement for the glory of Jesus Christ, we are in direct conflict with the work and agenda of the kingdom of Satan. Subsequently, we will inevitably come across spiritual opposition, whether subtle or direct. If we are to see the “captives set free,” if we are to remain obedient to the work of Christ, and if we are to have a deeper and more faithful walk with our Lord and Savior, then we must know how to rely on his authority and power when confronted with the reality of evil.
This fifth Dunamis Project addresses the reality of the demonic realm, personal deliverance ministry, the discernment process, the importance and effectiveness of the armor of God as outlined in Ephesians 6, spiritual warfare, and kingdom advancement.
Some of the topics covered include:
- Introduction to Spiritual Warfare
- The Believer's Preparation for Spiritual Warfare
- Personal Spiritual Warfare: The Battle Without
- Personal Spiritual Warfare: The Battle Within
- Kingdom Advance, Setting Captives Free, Understanding the Role of Spiritual Warfare
Are you looking for a way to help your church grow, not just in numbers, but in being alive?
Are you open to growing in the knowledge and work of the Holy Spirit, but aren’t sure how to help your congregation join you in that process?
At the Growing the Church conference, you will learn of the 7 dynamics of cooperation with the Holy Spirit so that you and your congregation can enter the grow with Christ and the Holy Spirit, through which Christ grows His Church.
The course, intended for pastors accompanied by others in their church leadership, gives participants tools so that when they return to their congregations they can implement what they have learned.
“Learning to be led by the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to work through me to do the ministry of Jesus is the key to an alive and growing congregation that is reaching out in missions.” - Richard White, Pastor, Christ Community Church - Montreat
Participants will have opportunities to build prayer support and relationships with others in ministry as well as receive on–going mentoring, if desired. A team offering intercessory prayer, hospitality and ministry will help to make this a restful and transforming 4 days.
The leadership team of teachers and small group leaders have had extensive experience in applying these principles in cooperation with the Holy Spirit in ministry.
The book, Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit, will be used as the text for the course. Written by Brad Long, Paul Stokes and Cindy Strickler, it presents the two foundations and seven dynamics of growing the Church. Published by Zondervan.
At this four-day equipping event you'll experience a unique combination of personal prayer retreat, biblical and reformed teaching on the Holy Spirit and practical application of the teaching. You'll have tools you can use when you return to your congregations that you can implement what you have learned.
“Solidly grounded in biblical truths and Reformed faith, the teachings and stories told were an inspiration to welcome the Holy Spirit into my walk with God, and further into the life of my church work.” Ed
Jesus Christ has invited us to work with Him in building His Church and extending His Kingdom in the world. He does this by sending the Holy Spirit to grow us from within to be his disciples and to come upon us for empowerment and gifts to work with Him.
Do you desire to be effective in ministry, but have come to the end of your strength? Do you work to spread the Gospel, but just see a culture that opposes it? Didn’t Jesus’ disciples deal with these same challenges? How did they do it?
We know that it begins with a relationship with Jesus Christ. But, what about the power and work of his Holy Spirit?
In the first of six Dunamis Projects, Gateways to Empowered Ministry looks at a Scriptural view of the person and work of the Holy Spirit.
By the end of the first Dunamis Project you will have a sound, Biblically-based knowledge of
- who the Holy Spirit is and
- what the role of the Holy Spirit is today.
- what it means to be filled with the Spirit.
Comments from recent participants:
- The teaching on the Holy Spirit ‘within’ and ‘upon’ was the best I have heard.
- Wonderful pulling together of Biblical instruction about the Holy Spirit.
- What was most helpful? The teaching, the prayer, the atmosphere of community.
- You’ve given me a biblical grid to understand my experience of Holy Spirit.
You’ll cover topics like:
- The Holy Spirit and the Trinity
- The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament
- Jesus and the Holy Spirit
- The Four Basic Works of the Holy Spirit
- The Infilling With the Holy Spirit
- The Nature and Experience of the Holy Spirit’s Power
- Receiving and Growing in the Power of the Holy Spirit
Whether you have reached a place in your Christian faith or ministry where it feels like you are trying to do too much on your own, or you are simply curious or skeptical about the nature and work of the Holy Spirit for today, this conference is a fantastic way to begin your journey in cooperating with the work of God.
The Early Bird cut off date is April 10th, at which time there will be an additional charge of $25.
