Rick Brittain–Disciple-Making Essentials

The key command in Jesus’ Great Commission is to make disciples. But what does that mean, and where do we start? Disciple-Making Essentials proposes a set of core “internal” truths that lay a solid foundation for the life-long journey of a disciple. We’ll present these topics with the help of a panel of practitioners: New Mexico pastors and leaders who are using the material to effectively make disciples and reach the lost across our state.

Michael Catt–The DNA of a New Testament Church

So many churches are struggling to find their identity in this new normal of ministry. Yet, the New Testament gives a picture of a balance approach to ministry that leads to effective evangelism. I believe there is a precise order to these things, they aren’t random or haphazard. The early church and the effective church through history has followed this pattern and found “fruit that remains.” It’s not about being the biggest or the brightest, it’s about being faithful to a balanced approach to ministry and judging every program, ministry and calendar event in light of these priorities. For over thirty years, we used some version of this “model” at Sherwood Church. While we served a dying community, at the same time, we averaged over 100 baptisms a year, and started multiple, regional ministries. It’s not the size of the church, it’s the focus that matters. Focus brings balance. Balance brings effectiveness.

Mark Custalow–Starting My Journey in Bible Storying

We’ll learn together about God’s grand story recorded for us in the Bible, and how we can make disciples and grow them in their walk with Jesus using the many stories from God’s Word.  You’ll walk away with the skills needed to begin your journey of becoming a fruitful disciple maker as a Bible storyer.

Rick Fisher–Developing a Powerful Praying Church

What did Jesus mean when He said “My house will be called a house of prayer”? Today’s Church faces challenges and crises it can only overcome through knowing what is on the mind and heart of God. In this session, Rick Fisher, co-author of “Developing a Powerful Praying Church”, focuses on the priorities along with adjustments leaders and congregations must make to establish a culture of prayer in the local church. Never underestimate what God can do through a praying church!

Dennis Garcia–IDEA WORKSHOP  Investigate – Discover – Equip – Act

Join us as we work better together. IDEA workshops are designed to be run by facilitators that help the group investigate solutions to problems the church faces, discover things that can truly make a difference, identify how people/churches need to be equipped to be used by God, and finally, act on what God has raised to our attention. Come ready to share, dream, create, and grow from the expertise that comes from the group.

The Workshop Question:

In your context how can evangelism become a catalyst for community, church, and individual restoration?

TJ Greaney–Starting an Outdoor Ministry in Your Church

You can create an outdoor ministry for the men of your church with the mission field the fatherless boys, father/sons in your church and community. Jesus reveals His training ground for His men in John chapter 21. An outdoor ministry can change your men, your church, your community. Come find out how.

Kolby King–title coming soon

Melissa Lamb–Missions in YOUR Church!

What does your church look like? Is it big, small, urban, or rural? Do you have older members or younger members? That’s perfect! YOUR church can learn about missions, pray for missions, support missions, and do missions! In this breakout we’ll talk about ways your church can be a part of missions whether you have 2 minutes at the end of the service, a week night class for kids, or just a table to display things on in the foyer.

Kenneth Priest–Re-engaging the Church to be OnMission

In the midst of disruptors, such as Covid, often times we need to refocus our attention on accomplishing mission and ministry. This session will cover how to get re-engaged after a disruptor impacts your ministry.

James Walker–A Live Conversation Between a Christian and an Atheist

Does God Exist? Atheist activist Bill Kluck and Christian apologist James Walker will hold a live dialogue on the question “Does God Exist?” followed by Q&A. Learn how to have a meaningful conversation with a skeptic without losing your mind or your religion. James Walker is president of Watchman Fellowship, a Christian apologetics ministry and Bill Kluck, is a former Christian who is now an atheist. Together they cofounded The Atheist & Christian Book Club four years ago. It is a monthly gathering of believers and skeptics respectfully discussing important books from both perspectives.

Paul Worcester–3 Habits For Everday Evangelism

In this workshop we will dive into a simple strategy that any church or youth ministry can use to equip members to live a lifestyle of evangelism. We have seen God use this to equip and empower students to share Jesus with friends as a lifestyle across the nation and it can be applied to any context.
