The Power of Story
In this class you will learn how to teach truth effectively so others can easily learn by grouping several stories together in a storyset or in a chronological format. This training is great for teachers and other communicators. When you want to influence others, there is no more powerful tool than story. Story can give meaning to life, reframe our frustrations, and give meaning to our challenges. People need story to organize their thoughts and make sense of the world around them. The cost of the class is $50 per person, which covers all printed materials. Taught by Dr. Darrell Horn.
Apologetics (basics)
Apologetics is the study of how to give reasons for our Christian hope. 1 Peter 3:15 reminds us to always be ready to make a defense for the hope that lies within us. This course will seek to constitute a rational basis for believing in Christian theism, by answering the objections and critiques of other worldviews. The cost of the class is $50 per person, which covers all printed materials. Taught by Albert Diaz.
One-Day Seminars:
Discovering Who Lives In Your Neighborhood
This one-day seminar on Thursday February 2, 2017 will focus on giving you the tools to research the community that lives around your church property. This is vital information for any church that wants to impact its community. Consider sending your mission committee or several key leaders to this event.
Additional information to follow.
The Missionary Nature of God and His Church
This one-day seminar on Saturday March 4, 2017 will discuss our missionary God and His plan and purpose for the whole of creation. The mission of God is what unifies the Bible from creation to new creation. The nature of the church, rooted in the very nature of God, is missionary. Our understanding that the Church is called and sent to participate in Jesus’ redemptive mission will influence how we view our local community. Practical ways in which to engage your local community will be discussed. Consider sending your mission committee or several key leaders to this event. Led by Brad Brisco, NAMB Church Planting Catalyst in Kansas City.
Additional information to follow.
Prayer Walking
This one-day seminar at your church facility will focus on the importance of walking through your community while praying for your neighbors. Church members are stepping into the streets to pray effectively for the community. This is intercession on a new level. Consider hosting a prayer walking event at your church. Call the SABA office to schedule your event.
Corporate Prayer
This one-day seminar at your church facility will focus on using the Lord’s Prayer to fervently pray as a church body. This can be a power gathering as your church collectively focuses on impacting your community through a guided prayer experience. This is a prayer experience not a Bible study. Consider hosting a corporate prayer event at your church. Call the SABA office to schedule your event.
