MOBILIZING MEN TO MINISTRY - Saturday 10:00

Have you ever tried to mobilize men? Ever been frustrated by the results, or should I say lack thereof? Don’t be. Even Jesus had a difficult time mobilizing 12 men! Yet within Jesus’ interaction with his disciples we see three keys that will help us engage and mobilize the men around us into life changing ministry.

MUSLIMS, CHRISTIANS, AND JESUS - Saturday 11:15

Minnesota is home to approximately 200,000 Muslims, with 10 recently elected into political office. Many questions have risen within the Christian community: Do Muslims want sharia law in MN? Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? Is Islam a religion of peace? What do Muslims think about Jesus? Does the Quran really teach that Muslims should kill the infidels? And most important, how should we as Christians engage and respond? In this workshop you will discover the answers to these questions and more.

THE MISSING DEMOGRAPHIC IN CHURCH GROWTH - Saturday 1:15

You can quickly grow your church by 75-100 adults if you reach only 10% of this missing, forgotten, and unreached demographic. Who are they? Single parents—specifically Single Mothers. They comprise 30-45% of families in many MN communities, including rural areas. This breakout will show you how to find your local demographics, give you practical ways to navigate the world of ministry to single mothers (yes, they can be messy), and encourage you to grow your church by intentionally including this “Missing Family Demographic”.

AWAKENING PURE WORSHIP - Friday 4:30

Why do so many people encounter songs, artists, and atmospheres in our services yet still miss encountering God? Why do so many folks find themselves absent in God’s presence? Why are so many of us tempted to put ministry for God above intimacy with God? We will look at these questions and more as we seek to awaken true and Biblical worship in our hearts and in the hearts of those we serve. Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of Jeff’s new book by the same title.
