Understanding the World We Live In: Missions Education and Trip Training

Andrew Gale

Do you want to increase your church’s awareness of what’s happening in the world? Do you want to give your church tools to understand the global church? Recent research has shown that most people who go on mission trips do not experience life change. The one factor that affects this is whether the person has done pre- and post-trip training. In this session, you will be given FREE curriculum that can be used as trip training material for mission trips or simply as a class curriculum in missions education.

 

Pentecost Life: The Spirit Still Speaks

In 2019, the Church of God was given the opportunity to engage in Pentecost Life, a Global Strategy initiative to educate and involve the church in God’s work in the world. Pentecost was a singular day in the life of the disciples, yet Pentecost is so much more than a single event on a single day. The burst of Pentecost continues to ripple across history, transforming lives. The Spirit continues to fill, to call, and to send. Come and hear stories from both the global church and local churches involved in the Pentecost Life initiative.

 

Acts 2 Journey to Church Health

Alton Garrison

This session will explain how implementing the functions of the Acts 2 church (connect, grow, serve, go, worship) can strengthen a church to be fueled by vision, become outward-focused, and more missional. The Acts 2 Journey Cohort is a yearlong process of discovery, discernment, and development that builds on the strengths of the congregation to learn from the past and envision the future. A church experiencing the Acts 2 Journey Cohort can expect to have adequate answers to ten questions:

  • Why does this church exist?
  • Where are we going?
  • How should we behave?
  • How will we get there?
  • How will we engage new people?
  • How will we treat them when they arrive?
  • How will we disciple them?
  • How will we train them to serve?
  • How will we inspire them to be missional (locally, globally)?
  • How will we help them encounter God?

 

Spiritual Leadership: Living Our Call, Loving Our Service Members

Gary Carr
Military Chaplains ONLY

10:00am – 3:30pm.

Sub-topics on this theme include:

  1. The chaplain as pastor, as well as public theologian.
  2. The chaplain discerning God’s leading in the midst of crisis and disaster.
  3. The chaplain’s personal life, 24/6.

Armed forces chaplains are, at their core, ministers of the gospel. For ministers to grow, they need to engage in a time of spiritual reflection and insight to address the quality of ministry they are providing. Since the ministry setting is so vastly different than a congregation, their unique call to ministry involves a focus on multicultural/multi-faith awareness, operating in a fast-paced industrial workplace, responding frequently to pastoral crises, and imposing extensive demands on the family. Retired Navy/Marine Corps chaplain and military endorser Gary Carr will discuss the minister’s personal life and the lasting impact a minister has on a military unit as the resident theologian.
