Reconnecting of Sunday with the Rest of the Week
What does Sunday have to do with the rest of the week? What does faith have to do with work? We often spend over 40 hours a week in the workplace and wonder whether our work even matters to God. Work is sometimes rewarding but also stressful and tiring — many workers today experience burnout or purposelessness in their work. Our work matters to God and God desires us to flourish in our work. Why? This workshop presents some of the common myths, seeks to reconnect who we are and what we do and reframe it within the biblical narrative with the goal of reinvigorating our imagination and passion for service in God’s Kingdom.

Becoming a Leader Others Want to Follow
In my experience of hosting various ministry events, two of my greatest fears have always been to not be able to recruit enough volunteers or not be able to motivate them enough to fulfil the goals of the event. During this talk, I will be sharing my own journey of how I became a volunteer leader at Tenth Church, a few of my insights on how to effectively recruit volunteers into your ministry and to provide some guidance on becoming an effective servant leader yourself.

Introduction to Mental Health – Understanding and Caring for Those who Struggle
Mental health problems affect many of us. Whether or not we ourselves struggle with a diagnosed mental illness, we likely know of someone who does or have witnessed and experienced the impact of mental health problems on one’s life. As Christians, we are not immune to mental health difficulties. We do, however, have the hope of the gospel through Christ, and can have the joy of sharing God’s peace and comfort with our loved ones who may be experiencing mental health struggles. In our desire to help, it is common to be uncertain as to how to best support those who are hurting – What do I say? How should I respond? This talk will provide basic information about common mental health problems, and offer practical strategies for the Body of Christ to support those in our families, schools, workplaces, and churches. This talk will also offer perspectives on God’s purposes and plans for those who struggle with mental health difficulties, providing encouragement for continued perseverance in faith even in the midst of struggles with mental health problems.

Prayer: The Tool of Intimacy, Transformation and Spiritual Authority
Kim is someone who hated praying and had a lifeless, rote prayer life merely 5 years ago. Now prayer has become her main avenue of ministering to people and intimacy with God. She has seen God use prayer to bring healing and freedom to people physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. In this session, you will learn about and practice the foundational biblical principles that drive Kim’s prayer life in the hopes that you will be equipped to have deepen your prayer life when you return home.
