Conference Theme

Jesus crossed social, racial and gender lines to spread the Gospel and He calls His Church to do the same. At Together To Transform 2017, we're going to build our understanding of people groups we may tend to avoid and discover ways to reach them with the Gospel. Keynote speaker Dr. Christopher Yuan, a Moody Bible Institute professor, and his parents will share their spiritual journey of unbelief to vibrant faith, a mother’s prayers for her prodigal son, and Dr. Yuan’s miraculous redemption from a destructive life style and prison. The purpose of TTT 2017 is to train pastors and volunteer church leaders and attendees. Begin to pray for this significant conference now, register soon and invite your friends.

 Nature or Nurture-Christopher Yuan

Dr. Yuan uses scripture and secular studies to explore the debate of why people identify as homosexuals. Is it inborn, or result from how they are raised? He will share how the Word of God, and the prayers of many, transformed his own life. 

 

 

 Ordinary Parents, Extraordinary Father- Dr. Leon and Angela Yuan

Guidance and hope for people who have a close friend or child who identifies as a gay individual. What are your Godly responsibilities? How do you deal with the emotions that flood over your soul? How should a parent respond? In what ways does God use our heartbreak, our prayers, and the Gospel of grace in our own lives and in the lives of those for whom we pray?

 

 Reaching Muslims- Jimmy Smith

Through Horizons International, Jimmy is fulfilling his passion and calling to share with churches, missionaries, & countless believers how to engage with Muslims in a way that shows God’s wonderful love and leads them to Christ. His practical teaching will help you build bridges with your Muslim neighbors and co-workers through which you can look for opportunities to share the Gospel.

 

 Reaching Mormons- Ross Anderson

Raised Mormon, Pastor Ross Anderson brings a unique perspective on reaching those who are involved in the Church of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Saints through relationships. Certainly you need to be ready to give a defense of your faith, but Pastor Anderson has learned that stepping across this line begins with building a credible relationship and looking for opportunities to share Christ.

 

 

 

Why Can't We All Get Along? Dr. Ruben Rivera and Dr. Robin Holland

Our country is divided politically, economically, and racially. Yet God desires His people to pursue shalom: the mutual wellness of all people and things under His loving rule and His encompassing peace, justice and harmony in all relationships in community. Through this seminar, you will be empowered to build a better understanding of yourself and those who are different from you, and will discover action steps to pursue shalom and effectively reach your world with the Gospel.

 

 

Reaching Hard To Reach Students - Taylor Whitmore

Youth groups are often filled with "church" kids. But how do we connect with students who have not grown up in church and point them to Jesus? How do we help those already convinced to see the spiritual needs of their lost friends? Learn together with other youth leaders how to build redemptive bridges while navigating the tensions of mixing churched and unchurched teens.

SOUL THIRST - Psalm 42 

“As the deep pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.” Psalm 42:1

A Seminar for ALL the women in your church! 

Psalm 42 is written from the anguish of an exile’s thirsty soul. He cries out for refreshment, for God’s presence, for answers, and for hope. His words beg us to examine our own lives and ask: What am I thirsting for right now? What brings me to tears these days? Am I longing for a connection with God that seems beyond my reach? And, where is my hope? 

Join Stephanie Price, CRM’s Women’s Ministry Consultant, for a look at SOUL THIRST. 

Details: 

Cheyenne Hills Church 7505 US Hwy 30 Cheyenne, CO 82001 

Friday, March 10th 2:30-4:30pm 

Cost is $5 for materials. 

SOUL THIRST is not included in the cost for TTT and attendance to Transform is not required. The Seminar will take place after the Friday luncheon and before the TTT opening session.
