SCHEDULE (August 1st-4th)

Monday 6-9PM (5:30PM Worship)Identity & Transformation

All fruitful ministry flows not from greater performance or striving but from our identity as beloved sons and daughters of God. The transformation that we need to undergo comes from the “renewal of your mind” (Rom 12:2) and thinking from the mind of Christ.

Tuesday 6-9PM (5:30PM Worship)Hearing God & Prophetic Gifts

Our goal is to grow in our relationship with God and strive to become more aware of the way he speaks to us for our own sake. From that foundation, we are able to move in the prophetic gifts of the Holy Spirit which God enables us to hear His voice in different ways for the world around us.

Wednesday 6-9PM (5:30PM Worship)Power & Healing

Jesus never proclaimed the Gospel without demonstrating it in power and love. Jesus’ healing ministry is at the heart of His Gospel of power and he expects his disciples to minister his healing on the earth (Mt 16:18-19). This class provides a foundation for partnering with the Holy Spirit to bring healing to the world around us.

Thursday 6-9PM (5:30PM Worship)Inner Healing & Freedom

Jesus Christ came to set the captives free and release the prisoners. He wants us to partner with him to bring freedom and wholeness to a broken world. One of the most intense quarters, this class will scratch the surface in understanding how we can be more effective in healing hearts with Christ and setting those free oppressed by the enemy.
