1) Creating a Culture of Generosity – Scott Ridout
This breakout will help leaders create a culture of generous giving in their churches. You will learn how to create a thirst for generous living in your leaders and your church. You will also learn some basic generosity principles you can take and apply in your local church setting.

2) The Disciplines of a Joyful Life – Dr. Jerry & Dee Sheveland
Your world can be discouraging at times. Sometimes life is down right painful. But in the darkness you can live with an ongoing sense of strength, hope and joy. Jerry and Dee will unpack Philippians 4:4-9 and help you discover how to live a joy-filled life in all circumstances.

3) Disciple-Making Begins With Your Personal Spiritual Journey – Sherry Mortenson
Often Christians proclaim and call people to an abundant kind of life they have yet to experience themselves.  Learn how to grow, stretch and go deep in your personal faith journey. God wants to meet you personally in powerful, intimate, transformational ways and in that Divine relationship He will prepare you well for the Kingdom mission He has called you to accomplish.

4) ) Discipleship: More than a Buzzword – Pastor Doug Dameron
Churches have become very skilled at many different methods and programs. We know how to attract people to a service, but do we know how to equip them to do the work of the Lord? Discipleship has become a common buzzword in churches. It's on banners and mission statements, but is it truly our mission? Come and explore the why's and how's of Biblical discipleship.

5)  "Can Scientists be Christians? Thinking about Science and Faith" -Dr. David Clark, Bethel Seminary
Perhaps you've heard people say that science opposes faith. That miracles contradict natural laws. Or that scientists must shut down part of their intellect in order to follow Jesus. Fortunately, this is sheer prejudice. Scientists (and others, too) need not park their brains in the church parking lot in order to worship the Lord. Come discover the surprising truth about why and how science and faith fit together.

6) Disciple-Making in Student Ministry – Pastor Shannon Popp
Student ministry provides an exceptional platform for teen-agers to discover who they are in Christ, build a dynamic faith and utilize their skills and spiritual gifts to make more disciples. Shannon will equip you with practical skills to create a disciple-making vision in your group.
