1) Neighboring Like Jesus—Dave Runyon
Dave Runyon uses this break out to help
you explore the concepts of his book more deeply. Plenty of time will be
dedicated to questions and answers as Dave lays out his motivation for writing
the book and how The Art of Neighboring has influenced his spiritual journey.
You'll also learn how to be a good neighbor in a non-urban setting.
2) Incubating Entrepreneurism—Dr. Steve Harling
how to create a missional church culture that equips and empowers members to
fully express their individual ministry callings (while still keeping everyone
headed in the same direction). You will hear a pastor’s reflections on what the
missional movement got right and wrong, and how to keep it moving into
3) Neighboring in Small Town Settings—Marlan Mincks
In a small town setting, bringing together two diverse
groups of people is often difficult but your success in ministry here depends
on it. The first group has been there forever. They own the property their
Great, Great Grandparents owned. They are as internet savvy as people
in a large city but are change resistant.
Transitional people who have moved to the area make up the second
group. They often have had a larger world experience, they view
life differently than the natives, and they like change. Let's
take a look at walking with a foot in each trail while moving
toward the mission to which God has called you.
4) Understanding Islam (and ISIS) Today—David
Clark, Vice President and Dean at Bethel
Media of every kind are telling us
about the rise of Islam in all its various expressions. What is Islam's story—how
did it begin, what does it teach, and how is it practiced today? What about
ISIS—what is its origin and is it just another branch of Al Qaeda? And what
should we do—how should Christians think about and respond to the growing
presence of Islam today?
5) Finding Joy and Hope in the Weariness and Wounds in
If you are finding yourself “drained and
discouraged" in serving, there is hope. If you are losing your passion and
purpose in ministry, there is hope. The Lord can provide authentic joy, healing,
perseverance, and power in the journey of faith and ministry (especially for
those who are weary and tired!) All women are invited to join us for this time
of encouragement, support, and practical steps to health and growth in the
midst of the different seasons of life and ministry.
6) Helping Students Be Good Neighbors—Jared Coe
In a barrage of Insta-pics, Likes and Friending, how do students
build authentic, caring relationships with their neighbors,
classmates, and others in their areas of influence? In the midst of 21st
century busyness and wireless connection, the antithesis of healthy face to face
relationships, students have multiple avenues to learn and live
out good neighboring. Jared is eager to share how students become great neighbors to others
by being connected to Jesus and then to others.

Dr. Sherry Mortenson, who spoke to us last year, has graciously offered to present her Woman at the Well Seminar this year.
Please note: This is available to ALL the women in your church! Any and all!
In John 4, we see the love of God overcoming every racial, religious and cultural barrier to reach imperfect people with His love, forgiveness and grace. Jesus was waiting for the woman at the well, to offer her life, to speak transforming truth into her life, to offer her relationship rather than religion. He was waiting to transform her life to reach others!
Come disengage from the busyness of your life and ministry to meet Jesus at the well.
Seminar is $10 for materials. This seminar is not included in the registration for TTT, and attendance at TTT is not required to come to Woman at the Well. The seminar will take place after the Friday Luncheon and before the TTT opening session.Date
