Breakout Information

Monday, October 15th

The Next Big Win, Not Exit 
Presenter: Jim Becker
A common phrase we hear today is “Stay in your lane.” Too often this philosophy has been adopted by the church when it comes to generations within the church. The fact is that God has called us to run the race together, to reach the world together, and to grow together. There are specific challenges that come with engaging, empowering and supporting NextGen ministry and young leaders. This interactive workshop will focus on practical steps your church can take to enhance NextGen ministry and become multi-generational.

The Cycle of Discipleship
Presenter: Lynn Cooper
By looking into the life of David as a young man, we will identify the magnificent need for discipleship and every believer knowing WHO there God is. In addition, how to be released into the individual call God has given each believer. WE must release a generation to answer Gods call even when it looks DIFFERENT than what we know or have experienced.

Creating Leadership Development Programs 
Presenter: Chad Garrison & Chris Radke
If we’re looking to future-proof our churches and ministries, we have to be intentional in developing leaders. In this breakout, we will pass along practical steps, best practices, resources and any hard-earned wisdom gained in developing, launching and maintaining a leadership development program.

Engaging Your Community Through NextGen 
Presenter: Natalie Werking
Find out how to reach the largest generation right where they are!  We are each called to pastor our communities, so let’s minister to the kids and youth who are there.  This breakout will help stretch our hearts and vision for people outside the walls of our church AND provide practical ways to reach and disciple them starting right now!

Tuesday, October 16th

Presenter: Esperanza Morphis
The term “city” is found over 1,000 times in the bible.  Whether a small American city or a large international city, the Lord has equipped the church to engage the cities we find ourselves in. Engaging missions within cities, has everything to do with equipping the church to transform its members.  Transformed people, transform cities! #letsgo

Empoderados para establecer la cultura del Reino de Dios en nuestra cultura terrenal
(Empowered to establish God’s Kingdom culture in our earthly culture)

Presenter: Eliana Caudillo
Dios nos ha llamado y empoderado para servirle y establecer Su Reino en el lugar donde Él nos ha puesto y Su Reino tiene su propia cultura.  Somos embajadores del Reino en un país con otro idioma y costumbres pero el Dios que servimos es el mismo. Es nuestra labor, valga la redundancia, extender Su Reino empoderados por el Espíritu Santo.

A Holistic Model for Empowering Others
Presenter: Ken Roberts
In this workshop I will lay out a template that helps leaders simplify how to disciple/empowers others in their ongoing growth. This grid will empower leaders to empower others who can empower others.

Empowering Legacy
Presenter: Harlyn Matson
The “Leaving A Legacy” workshop will be worth your time!
It’s packed full of common sense, biblical insights.
Harlyn wants to help you and your family with plain and straightforward financial nuggets.
It’s powerful, practical and most of all biblical. You’ll be equipped, inspired, and compelled to live beyond today and leave a legacy that will bless generations to come.
“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”  –  Proverbs 13:22
