What Do You Want To Talk About?
An Unexplainable Life
As we walk alongside Peter in the first twelve chapters of Acts, we discover a radically transformed man. In only fifty days Peter went from a timid man, full of fear and hiding in the shadows, to a courageous follower of Jesus. The change was unexplainable, a work of God in Peter’s heart and mind, because as those around him noted: Peter had been with Jesus. How did the change occur? And more importantly, can such a change occur within us—today, in the here and now?
What do you suppose God could do in and through each of us in fifty days if we spent time with Jesus in this study of His Word? I encourage you to find out!
Step away for the weekend and meet Peter face to face and encounter the source of his power. Become challenged to grab hold of that power yourself, believing that God wants to do something in and through you that is unexplainable apart from him. How about it friend—are you game? (1-4 sessions)
Bible Study Kick-Off or Wrap-Up
If you’re completing an Unexplainable study as a group, start or finish with a visit from the author. At a kick-off session, Erica can present the biblical history behind a study topic, and what God personally taught her through the research and writing process. At a wrap-up session, she’ll review some takeaways and action steps, and answer your lingering questions. Either way, Erica will challenge your group to glean as much from Scripture as possible. One to four sessions.
Note: This session can combine with a leadership training workshop for Bible-study leaders. Erica can help you cast the vision for your meeting time, managing sessions as opportunities for personal transformation. She’ll also discuss how to effectively facilitate small-group time.
It’s About Time
How do you live an intentional life, full of vitality? With an increasing to-do list, and so many distractions demanding time, how do you make the most of your days? And what are you supposed to be doing here, anyway? By looking at the incredible transformation that occurred in the disciples’ lives through the patient and persistent work of the Holy Spirit and the transforming power of the Word of God, participants are invited to think about their own story they long to tell: what is the legacy they long to leave behind? A life of fear and regret or a life of love, meaningful relationships and impact for the kingdom? Peter and John leave us with messages of incredible inspiration in their letters at the end of their days and issue an invitation to begin making the most of our time now. This also includes a practical workshop to consider your dreams, talents, skills, and passions. You’ll discover how these God-given gifts are meant to be unwrapped and beautifully displayed. One to four sessions.
Does life sometimes feel overwhelming? Or maybe you’re in a season where you’re going through the motions but you don’t feel as close to God as you did at one time? We weren’t meant to merely survive through life, we were meant to THRIVE! And God shows us how in His Word. In this practical and personal getaway, we will discover how God uniquely designed us, uncover His plans and purpose for our lives, and open our arms widely to receive the abundant life He has for us! A soul at rest, a heart set free, a life of joy and meaning..come learn to embrace your calling and THRIVE! Two to four sessions.
Managing Mountaintops and Valleys
Moments on a spiritual high feel great, but what about when you’re in a valley? Whether you’re on a spiritual mountaintop or struggling in a dry valley, God wants to teach you. You’ll explore several examples in Scripture where God led His children from the mountaintop to the valley and then back up the mountain again. There is great promise and insight to gain, no matter where you travel on your life journey. Through examining the life of Paul, we see that following Jesus involves many twists and turns, but through it all, God is faithfully molding us, equipping us and allowing us to become more like Christ to those around us, resulting in deep, meaningful relationships. One to four sessions.
Studying Scripture for Life Change
Do you feel your group or individual study time is stuck in a rut? Do you follow a handful of favorite video teachers and you’ve exhausted their available resources? Or do you feel maybe it’s time to mix it up? Are you discouraged from spending continual time in Bible study, yet not observing spiritual growth? Do you wonder how to reach across generations to encourage different ages to commit to study time? Then it’s time to rock the boat and step into the waves! In these sessions you’ll look at the Bible’s place and purpose in your life; how Jesus modeled teaching the truth; ways to make growth and change an anticipated part of study times; and why now, more than ever, effective teaching of the full counsel of God’s Word is imperative. One to three sessions. Can target ministry leaders.
A Beautiful Encounter
Your Roots & Your Reach
Sometimes things like fear, insecurity, rejection, and past hurts can take root in our heart stifling the life of God in us. Scripture provides us many examples of how this occurred in the lives of God’s people. However, God intends for us to flourish and thrive! So how do we dig out these harmful roots and begin to bear fruit that will last? God tells us in His Word how to dig up those roots and replace them with life giving truth. These sessions deal with living out our faith on a practical level and moving from surviving to thriving! Two to four sessions.
Taking Your Women’s Ministry to the Next Level
When planning, designing, revamping, or launching a women’s ministry, how do you decide which activities prove essential, and which do not? What does a balanced ministry require, and what fundamentals do you need to teach women? How do you ensure you’re teaching the full counsel of God’s Word? How do you effectively disciple women toward life change? This planning and brainstorming workshop can answer these questions, taking your women’s ministry to the next level. One to three sessions. For women’s ministry leaders.
Becoming A Transformational Writer
Everyone loves an inspirational story, but how do you move a reader to action? What’s the difference between invoking an emotional response and challenging your reader to step out and be the change? This session invites you, as the writer, to create characters and storylines that encourage your readers to go and do something with your story.
Be You, Bravely
This session reminds us of our uniqueness and how we are each specifically designed by God. Looking intently at Mary, the Mother of Jesus, we see how ill-equipped she seemed for the task set before her, yet God chose her nonetheless, to be the earthly mother of His Son. When we doubt our capabilities, wonder at our circumstances, and feel overwhelmed, Mary reminds us that it is our character that counts! This session works especially well during the Christmas season, but can be adapted for use all year.
