Shout! – Creativity That Makes a Difference

Speaker: Alex Marestaing

Description: In a world growing darker by the day, God is calling a new generation of pastors, musicians, artists and writers to share His hope in unique ways. Based on Matthew 10:27, where God tells us to “shout from the rooftops” what He has “whispered in our ears,” this seminar is meant to encourage participants to face their insecurities and move forward in the creative direction they feel God is leading. With stories of Christians making an impact in the film, music, and video game industries, this seminar will help those with creative talents develop a “voice” that will reach people in the church and beyond.

Spiritual Formation: What It Means, And Why You Need It!

Speaker: Norbert Bauer

Description: In the Western World we are becoming more and more aware of our physical needs, and many are investing time and energy in exercising and going to the gym, but we totally ignore the needs of our spiritual man. We have made the connection between body and mind (soul), but have totally lost touch with our spiritual needs. Spiritual Formation is like taking your spirit man for a workout and train him to become stronger. Do you know of any serious athlete that has never had a coach or trainer help him to exercise properly, and helped him to learn how to pace himself so that he would not run out of steam before crossing the finish line? And yet, so many of us stumble through this race called “life” without much practical advice.

God at Your Workplace

Speaker: Annette Rust

Church + Creative expressions = True?

Speaker: Charlotta Lind

Description: We are many in church that is longing for more creativity in church, but why is it so hard to make things happen and what is the resistance made of? By looking at our history, the roots to the Swedish non-state church movement, we can find answers, knowing this, we can also understand where we stand now, which makes us able to move forward. God want us to be creative, as replicas of him, the creator, but is all art, art? Can we bring everything in to church? Does the bible say anything regarding this?

Your Territory of Grace

Speaker: Ted Jeans

Description: What does God want you to do with your life? How does he want to use you? What is your “calling” or “ministry”? Paul wrote: “grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift” (Eph 4:7). God has given you a “territory of grace” in which to live & serve. Understanding YOUR territory is a key to becoming what God has designed you to be.

Convergence – When Everything Falls Into Place

Speaker: Norbert Bauer

Description: Each season of life holds key ingredients to growth in what God is doing in our lives and how he is doing it. Spiritual Formation can be defined as “the process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of the world around us.” Our spiritual formation takes place through three avenues: – Our Choices – Our Circumstances – Our Seasons of Life While choices and circumstances play a big part in spiritual formation, so does our “season of life.” Too often, we have been guilty of “wishing away” the season of life that we are in. Only 20% of people reach convergence – the season if life where everything falls into place and you discover your true purpose. Your future is locked inside of you – the journey is to break it out!
