  • Multicultural Leadership

    Christopher McFadden


    When thinking about multi-cultural leadership often times the first thing that surfaces especially in our current social climate is the idea of race. Although, race does play a part within the constructs of multiculturalism that is just the surface of the idea. Becoming a more culturally aware leader will help you to become more effective in leading and serving those around you. Our goal as Christian leaders is to reach as many people as possible for the cause of Christ and our door into the conversation begins with understanding someone from a cultural standpoint. 

  • How To Hear From God: A Proven System for Daily Devotions

    Most ministry leaders admit that they struggle with a consistent time with the Lord. What if you could constantly hear from God? What if you could sense his voice like never before? What if you could start each day with a intimate, deep time with Christ? The solution is easier than you think. With the right system, you can hear from God with great clarity. In this workshop, Pastor Scot Longyear shares the simple system of Life Journaling. Originally developed by Pastor Wayne Cordeiro (New Hope Fellowship, Oahu), Life Journaling is a system of daily scripture reading and writing. Scot will give an overview of the Life Journaling system and lead each person through life journaling from start to finish.
