2017 America: How Did We Get Here (and what can be done about it)?

Why is same-sex marriage the law of the land? Why is euthanasia available to one in five Americans? Why is religious liberty more challenged than ever before? Why has our culture gotten to where it is today? There are reasons why we think the way we do. Americans are influenced by three cultural metanarratives. When we understand them, we are better able to understand where our society is and where we’re going. And we’ll discover practical ways to engage our fallen culture with the transforming truth of Scripture.

Jim Denison bridges faith and culture by engaging contemporary with biblical truth. He co-founded the Denison Forum in February 2009. Since that time, he has spoken to over 100,000 people on five continents. He is the author of eight books, including his most recent, The State of Our Nation: 7 Critical Issues. Dr. Denison also serves as Resident Scholar for Ethics with Baylor Scott & White Health, Senior Fellow as well as with the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative in Washington D.C.

Wasting time with God: Why Christ-Centered Worship Matters

How do you contend with people who are never happy with the worship experience? Do you feel like you have to be a “people pleaser” concerning worship? What are some helpful steps in creating a Christ-centered worship experience? Is there a difference between “Christians worshipping” and “Christian worship”? Does the church calendar, pastoral prayer, reciting creeds, etc., have a place in today’s worship? What expressions of faith are relevant in today’s worship? What is the purpose and place of worship in the church today? Are you still doing worship that feels like you’re in the 1950’s? Is that wrong?

Kevin J. Navarro serves with CRM Empowering Leaders and their Spiritual Formation Community, Imago Christi. He is the author of The Complete Worship Leader (Baker Books, 2001) and The Complete Worship Service (Baker Books, 2005). He served as the senior pastor of Bethany Evangelical Free Church in Centennial, Colorado for fourteen years and on the staff of Bethany for 23 years. He and his family make their home in Centennial Colorado.

PRC with Hugh Halter

Bill Nicoson —  April 21, 2017

How To Help Your People Be On Mission Without Splitting Your Church In The Process

Hugh says that many people have asked, “Hugh, what is the one key to turning a typical small group into a true missionary community?” Another asks, “Hugh, how did all those people find faith…really how did it actually happen?” Another asks, “How do you disciple people to live more human lives like Jesus?” Hugh’s answer is always the same. “You have to teach and disciple people in how to throw a good party. It’s where everything starts.” It’s where we learn to listen instead of judge. Where we become advocates instead of adversaries and where people cease to be targets or projects because they are our friends. Remember, when teaching about the gospel of the kingdom, our living metaphors are that of a wedding feast, a banquet, and a supper. It’s time to include this in our own spiritual formation.

Hugh Halter moved from Denver in 2016 to Alton IL, with his wife Cheryl and three grown children to participate in a brand new missional living adventure which is allowing them to live out the incarnational ministry values they hold deeply. He speaks extensively across the country encouraging and equipping pastors in incarnational ministry and missional leadership.

Creating a Culture of Generosity

Learn how to build on biblical principles, your best giving practices, and your ministry’s DNA to weave together a strategy that will help you fund your God-inspired vision. This workshop will give you ideas on how to capture the amazing, God-inspired vision you have for your ministry and help you fund it. Led by Brad Leeper from Generis, this workshop will make you think out of the box. It works! Generis has inspired ministries to raise over $6 billion since ’89.

Brad Leeper has the privilege of working with the best people on the planet in accelerating generosity toward God-inspired vision. For any generous and giving culture to succeed, three key questions must be answered: ‘Is God in this plan? Have church leaders cast a vision for the project that exceeds the brick and mortar story? And does each church member understand the sound, biblical basis for engaging in joyful giving in support of that vision?’ Creating an environment where individuals ask God what He wants them to do–in light of what He has called their church to do–is Brad’s ultimate task.

Brad and his wife Lisa have two delightful adult daughters, Laura and Sarah. Both are married to incredible men who, he says “have made our family even better.” Brad earned a Masters in Theology degree from Dallas Seminary and a B.S. in Economics from West Virginia University. He has professional certifications in church risk management and human resources with diverse experience in financial analysis, adult education, cross-cultural missions and strategic planning.

This event is free for Pacific Church Network, Cornerstone Pastors Network, Missionary Church, Transformation Ministries and Acts 29 Member Churches and includes lunch. $25 for non-members.
