Breakout Information

Monday, October 9th

Mission Plunge
Presenter: Esperanza Morphis
Get challenged in your missiology for both local and international missions.
Receive strategy and ideas on how to cross cultural and ethnic boundaries in your local city and the nations abroad.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
Presenter: Steve Ryssemus and panel of Pastors
Workshop being offered as a follow up from last year’s HDConference with Peter Scazzero. We will have a panel of pastors offering insight, encouragement and Q&A time from their experiences of initiating EHS as a format for discipleship in their churches.

Identifying and Breaking Personal Growth Plateaus In The Life of a Leader
Presenter: Ken L. Roberts
In a recent survey I did among pastors and Christian leaders, this topic had the highest interest among those surveyed. In this workshop I help pastors and Christian leaders assess if they are in a personal growth plateau and how to move to the next area of personal growth for their life and leadership. This workshop is extremely helpful for pastoral teams within a local church or a group of pastors within the same geographic area.

Tuesday, October 10th

Generation Z
Presenter: Angie Richey
Generation Z is here! Born between 1993-2012, the youngest and largest generation provides a unique opportunity for the church to affect culture. Described as the most diverse generation racially, ethnically, educationally, technologically, and sexually, Gen Z is also considered the first generation in the West raised in a post Christian context. Understanding the shifting generational landscape will enable Christian leaders and parents to identify implications, engage current opportunities, and plan strategically for the future.

The Way of Jesus: Building a Culture of Mission and Discipleship
Presenter: Paul Maconochie
Jesus did not just speak to the crowds, He built a culture where His followers had access to His life. They were able to imitate Him and to see similar breakthrough in their lives that He did in His. In 21st Century America, Pastors are often expected to be providers of religious services. In this workshop we will look at ways of changing the culture of our churches so that everyone can engage with the call to engage with a life imitating Jesus, and seeing break-though in our neighborhoods and networks.
