Leadership Workshop:  Thursday, April 23; 7:30-9:00 p.m. and Friday, April 24; 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

We’ve added a Leadership Workshop on Thursday for ministry, family group leaders/assistant and aspiring single leaders.  As leaders it is time for us to RISE UP!:

    • and Be Inspired: (Doug Arthur)


    • and Witness:


    • and Lead: One of the most important skills of leadership is being able to effectively lead a small group of disciples in an inspiring, engaging, and encouraging way.  This class is perfect for equipping young leaders or those aspiring to become leaders themselves!


    • and Raise Up: Instances of raising up someone to take the reins of leadership are found all throughout the Bible, and the Kingdom will always be in need of new, zealous men and women capable of leading and training others! This class will explain how to train and raise up new leaders in your ministries.


    • and Fish for Men: This will be a facilitated brainstorming session as we seek to become more effective at keeping, converting and engaging men for God.


The Retreat:  Friday, April 24; 7:30 – 8:45 p.m. through Sunday, April 26 , 1:00 p.m.

This retreat promises to be a time of great fellowship, powerful lessons, and inspiration to do great things for God. God is moving in the singles’ ministry and He is calling each and every one of us to RISE UP!:

    • and Worship:


    • O Men of God:  (Charles Stuart and Zach Wolfe)


    • Women of God:  (Kim Reed and Angela Perry)


    • and Dream Again: God has incredible plans for each person, but sometimes it can feel like our dreams, goals, and spiritual lives can take a nose-dive after years take their toll or trials come our way.  Despite obstacles, it is not only the time to start dreaming again but to dream even bigger than ever before!


    • Levantate y Ponte a Soñar de Nuevo: Dios tiene planes increíbles para cada persona, pero a veces se puede sentir como nuestros sueños, metas, y vida espiritual puede caer en pedazosos después de los años, y las pruebas que viene a nuestra vida.  A pesar de los obstáculos, no es solo el tiempo para comenzar a soñar de nuevo, pero para soñar aún más grande que nunca!


    • and Claim the City: Single men and women are a massive demographic all across the world, and God desperately wants these lost souls to be saved.  This class aims to inspire and equip those who are eager to play their part in the mission of evangelism.


    • and Take the Lead: Kingdom-wide, the Singles Ministry needs to realize its incredible and unique potential to be the tip of the spear in the efforts of leading God’s church! God wants to use our lives to inspire others and to take the church to new heights that we have never reached before.  It is time for the world to hear the roar of the Singles ministry! This class is designed to capture and impart the spirit and drive of Caleb when he declared “Now give me this hill country” (Josh. 14:12)


    • and Build Up: (Adam and Bethany Smith) A topic of much discussion in the Kingdom is how to best create and maintain godly friendships between men and women as well as transitioning those godly friendships into godly dating relationships.


    • and Praise: (Carrandias Moore and Obiageli Ukadike) There is no better time than the present to deepen your personal connection to our Heavenly Father!  This class will focus on how to strengthen your relationship with God and what a life of a disciple who is deeply in tune with walking in step with the Spirit looks like!


    • and Shine: (Doug Arthur)
