What to Bring
A - Growth
Keeping the Lord’s Day… in College?
When you are in college, there is always homework to do and studying to be done. But should it be done during all seven days of the week? That is what most students do, but God calls us to keep the Lord’s Day holy to Him. Come and find out why you should keep the Lord’s Day and how to do so while a college student.
In the House of God
The Bible says the local church is very important to the growth of a Christian. But why is it important? And if it is so important, what should I look for in a local church and how can I be involved in one as a student? These are the questions this workshop will explore and seek to answer.
Like a Tree Planted by Water
As with all living things, growth is essential for the Christian life - growth in knowledge, growth in faith, and growth in obedience. And no matter how long we have walked with the Lord, we should desire more of this growth in our lives. But what produces this kind of spiritual growth in us? This is what this workshop will address from God’s Word.
B - Ministry
Making Sense of Sexuality and Gender
Today there are many beliefs regarding the subjects of sexuality and gender. The church has also become confused about them in their thinking. In this workshop, we will examine what God’s Word says about both of these subjects and how to help those who are struggling with them.
An Hospitable Life
In this workshop, we will explore a broad, Biblical definition of hospitality as essentially relational and also how we can develop hospitality regardless of our station or place in life.
Building Up the Body of Christ
The Bible says we are to share with others what we have learned ourselves about walking with God. Two ways to do this are: one-on-one discipleship and leading a small group Bible study. In this workshop, we will learn how to build up the body of Christ by engaging in these activities.
