Being is Greater Than Doing
In the church we have either been explicitly or implicitly taught that a “good” Christian walks and talks a very particular way. But what if we were mistaken? What if God designed each of us uniquely for a specific calling only we could answer? What if to be like Jesus meant more than just serving a lot and being “good?” Together, we will explore how God calls each of us to love our self, live our best, and to lead from both through the Enneagram personality tool.
The call to self-awareness and loving your self – This talk will examine the importance of self-awareness, the problems of blind spots, and how God has made each of us unique.

How to Keep Serving without Burning Out
Ministry is demanding work and we often think we can lead effectively when we’re running on fumes. But we can’t and doing this is a poor example to the people around us. This workshop will help you identify the thoughts and behaviours that either drain you or sustain you.

Quarter-life Crisis and Faith
We are different from the all the previous generations. But you already know that, you are redefining what it means to grow up, be a part of society, and live a meaningful life. Even so, a bigger question lie ahead, how do you follow Jesus, and find your calling, manage work, friends, family, love life in all of this?

Mobilizing the Church through Mission and Justice
What did Jesus mean ‘But seek first His Kingdom and his righteousness (justice) and all these things will be given to you as well’? How does The Church engage with God’s mission and justice in our changing societal landscape? What does it mean to re-engage with the good news of Jesus for all people everywhere, and have fun doing it?
We will explore what it means to embrace justice (righteousness) as a core aspect of God’s mission in the world and, rather than be overwhelmed by what this might mean, we’ll lean into the exciting invitation to participate in being harbingers of a new creation.

God’s heart and ‘Bias’ towards Those on the Margins
What is God’s ‘mandate’ to engage with those on society’s margins? What is marginalization? How can the good news of Jesus be we experienced coming ‘through’ the other and not just ‘to’ those on society’s margins?
We will look at the theological mandate to be towards those on the margins and think through practical ways of engaging with people who might on the surface look very different from ourselves.
