Learning to Lead Yourself | Russ Cline
When we talk about “leadership”, we all panic because either we don’t think we’re a leader, or we don’t think we’re going to be a good leader. Russ will spend this session talking about how to take care of yourself as you continue to grow in your leadership and influence of others. This time is filled with practical tools that can become a part of the regular rhythm of your life!

How to Plan, Promote, & Execute Events that Stick | Jamin Garoutte
Looking to make your event or Bible study stand out, leaving people with a solid impression or “take away?” Whether you’ve been planning events for years or you’re about to create your first experience, this breakout session will help you step-up your game. Instead of just getting the “What” details figured out, we’ll dig into the “Why,” and how to keep your experience focused on effectively reaching the goals you’ve laid-out for it. We’ll take things a step further by putting yourself in the shoes of those you want to reach & considering their thoughts, needs, etc. so you can adjust your project accordingly for maximum impact.
Does the Word Counseling Scare You? If So, Use the Term Discipleship | Dave Hills & Deanna Doctor
A common picture of counseling is a sober looking counselor sitting across the desk from a desperate counselee. That’s a scary thought for most. The reality is most counseling doesn’t look anything like that. Instead, it takes place in the informal interactions that take place between people throughout the day. YOU “counsel” people on a regular basis. So it isn’t really a question of “Am I a counselor?” It’s “How well do I counsel?” And if the term counseling still scares you, just call it discipleship. It’s a less scary word for the same thing.
Teaching the Bible Accurately & Effectively | Tony Tice
Whether it’s teaching the Bible to your children at home or a class at church or wherever it may be, it’s of the utmost importance to do two things: first, make sure you’re saying what the Bible is actually saying; second, say it in a way that people will hear it and apply it. In this workshop we’ll take a look at the key steps to deliver a talk that will do both.
