Workshop Descriptions

Please read the description for each of the workshops.  Choose five workshops that you would like to attend and number those five 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (with 1 being your first choice and 5 being your last choice).  You will be attending three workshops. You MUST use numbers in making your choices.

“Culture Shock”  

As Christians, we are perpetually on a battlefield.  The kingdom of this world is like a carnival, calling us to play games and ride rides that they promise will fulfill us, but at the end of the day, we are left empty inside.  How do we live the Christian life while surrounded by these lies and temptations? In this workshop we will look at how to live in the kingdom of God while surrounded by the kingdom of darkness.

“Living with Purpose”

We will explore the significance of living with purpose and the dangers of living without purpose.  Moreover, you will be equipped with tools and strategies to discover and support your purpose. Living with purpose allows you to #LiveFearless.

“Life Hack”  

Life hacks are intended to make life easier and to show people ways they can save time and money.  In this version of Life Hack you will learn how to save something way more important than time and money.  What’s more important than time and money? Come to Life Hack and find out!

“Warrior’s Boon: Conquering with Jesus”  

Jesus is leading God’s war against the kingdom of darkness.  He has already won a massive victory, and we look forward to His return when He will finally win the ultimate victory over the darkness.  Let’s explore the mind-blowing promises Jesus has made to His faithful disciples who join Him here and now in His epic conquest. (Revelation 2-3)

“I Am the Christian the Devil Warned You About”  

How to get our faith and actions to match.  James 2:14-26

“The Brave and the Afraid”

There are a lot of brave people in the Bible.  There are also a lot of people in the Bible who were afraid.  Sometimes these people were both brave and afraid. We’ll look at these people and hopefully see that they are no different than you and I.

“Telling Yourself the Truth”  

Whether we realize it or not, all day long we tell ourselves messages.  “I’m not as smart as I should be,” “Nobody cares about me,” “I need to make everyone happy.”  But are our messages helpful or true? What does the Bible say about telling ourselves the truth?  In this workshop we will talk about identifying our messages and look at how God’s truth can free us from lies and bring us closer to each other.

“Parables Unlocked!”

Unlock the mysteries of the Parables of Jesus.  Learn the true meaning and how to apply them to our lives today.

Note: Sponsors will attend the "For Sponsors Only" workshop with Eric Epperson during the first
 and second workshop sessions.  Session three you will meet in the dining hall.  During this
 time, sponsors will be given instructions for the afternoon and also have the opportunity to give
 us feedback concerning the weekend.  EVERY SPONSOR needs to attend session three.  We
 are asking sponsors NOT to attend the youth sessions due to over-crowding in the rooms.
