BREAKOUT SESSIONS - Choose one for each time
(More details coming soon):
Tuesday, March 18, 1:30-3:00pm:
#1: Dr. Russell West - "They Call Me Mentor"
will explore trends and practices of an emerging Church Depth movement
with an eye to help pastoral and lay partners to do the one thing Jesus is truly counting on
-- the making of disciples who can faithfully lead and extend the
gospel borders of the church. Each leader can mentor the next generation
of leaders in a way that truly counts. We will explore practical
insights on how.
#2: Dr. John Oswalt - "Jesus in the Old Testament"
everywhere believe that the New Testament teaches us about Christ. But
what about the Old Testament? Is it legitimate to find Christ there? Did
Old Testament writers really look forward to Christ, or do we impose
something foreign to their real intent when we see Christ fulfilling the
Old Testament. This seminar will explore these and similar questions
and propose legitimate ways to preach Christ from the Old Testament.
#3: Dr. Stacy Minger - "Preaching the Gospel"
As preachers we readily affirm that the goal of preaching is to Proclaim the Gospel
In this breakout session we will take a closer look at the nature of
the Gospel (Could it be that re-familiarizing ourselves with the Gospel
will add fresh vibrancy to our preaching?) We will also explore how
our preaching from week to week can faithfully engage the Gospel message
to the end that those who hear are more fully formed as disciples of
#4: Dr. Fred Long - "The Beatitudes: Living the Life of the Rabbi"
The Beatitudes (Matt. 5:3-10) frame the entire Sermon of the Mount (Matt. 5-7), but how and why? Careful investigation of the "list" reveals an
("order of salvation") that entails a challenging vision of living in
the world that embodies the Kingdom Ethics of Jesus. This session
explores the setting, structure, content, and implications of the
Thursday, March 20, 9:30-10:30am:
#5: Dr. Timothy Tennent - "Teaching the Faith, Forming the Faithful"
Discipleship is at the core of Wesleyan identity. This is the great contribution of the Wesleyan movement in the post-Reformation renewal movements of the 18th century. The very word “Methodist” reflected our intentional methods of discipleship formation. Today we are experiencing a long overdue rebirth of discipleship and catechesis in the life of the church. Catechesis is sometimes wrongly understood as only focused on the key doctrines or beliefs of the church which are “passed down.” However, while it is true that it is essential that the church protect itself against false teachings and preserve the Apostolic witness, this is not the sole function of discipleship or catechesis. Historic catechesis has always been like a three-legged stool; the loss of any results in the collapse of the whole. The three “legs” of catechesis are doctrine, holiness and practice. In other words, the church has not been satisfied that the faith has been “passed on” until the new believer was shaped and formed in what they believe (doctrine), how they live (moral/holiness) and what they practice (spiritual disciplines). A survey of catechesis over the centuries shows a remarkable agreement that the core doctrines of the church are best captured in the Apostles’ Creed; the core moral or holiness code is best captured in the Ten Commandments; and the core spiritual disciplines are best captured in the Lord’s Prayer and the Sacraments. This seminar will focus on how these can be effectively used today in the formation of new believers.
#6: Dr. Matthew Sleeth - "On Sabbath"
Sabbath Rest. Good for our souls. Good for the planet. Come hear Blessed
Earth founder Dr. Matthew Sleeth share how adopting a 24/6 life can
radically transform your life, your church, and God's green earth.
#7: Dr. Michael Matlock - "Second Temple Judaism: Between the First and New Testaments"
intertestamental history and literature is vitally important for
understanding the exilic and postexilic period of God's people and the
New Testament. We will consider both overall trends as well as
developments unique to a particular portion of this history. Come be
informed about elements in early Judaism that shaped Jesus and the
#8: Dr. Steve Elliott - "Preaching to the Millenials"
don't have to speak their language...you have to speak their values. A
conversation about speaking into the lives of millenials utilizing 'the
value roads' they travel on. Cool hair, plaid shirts and skinny jeans
