"The Exodus of Millennials and Youth from the Church"

Passing the torch to the next generation is a crucial component for any entity. As believers, we know that we are called to be the Lord's witnesses in the Earth until the day of His return. This raises the concern for the state of the church in the coming years with many young adults and youth shying away from involvement. In this workshop, the root of the current Millennial and 

Gen-Z exodus from the church will be brought to light. How is today's influencer-based society affecting this falling away? Is there room for Millennials and Youth to grow and lead within the church? And more!

"Secular Culture and the Church"

Less than half of all Americans belong to any religious organizations. The Christian church has proclaimed its gospel in a world that no longer accepts the essentials of the Christian faith. In this workshop you will discover how to find hope, confidence, and an unwavering conviction through God’s Word to meet the challenges of ministering to an ever-increasing secular culture.The family is being deconstructed by diminishing the role of the man and his family especially the Black man. By using the ministry tools of our ReCreation arena and Compass Studios we can reach those who come and minister to them at their point of need.

"Post-Pandemic State of the Body of Christ"

There is an emerging trend of self-identified Christians who have abandoned the church and practice their faith and spirituality outside of the church walls only. The question is should we just fellowship virtually or do we need to fellowship in person? In this workshop we address unique ways in which to experience God and produces our mutual cooperation in God's worship, God's work, and God's will being done in the world. We also provide a means for individuals who are unable to fellowship personally due to health, distance or any other limitations.

"Nothing Left Unresolved: Balancing Spiritual and Mental Health"

In Genesis 3:9 God asks Adam the question "Where are you?” This question was asked not because God didn't know where Adam was but because Adam didn't know where Adam was. During this Spiritual Check Up workshop, you will be challenged to ask yourself the very same

question...."Where am I spiritually, mentally and emotionally"; While navigating this unprecedented era of change and step into the "Year of Manifested Promise", be prepared to challenge yourself and to be examined by The Great Physician. You will leave this workshop with a new found understanding of what those outside of the church face and how the church can help.

"Building Innovative Strategies for In-reach and Outreach Ministry"

This workshop is designed to develop, teach, and train new ways for implementation in outreach and in-reach capacities. Unfortunately, the pandemic has changed many unbelievers' perceptions of the church and the church, as a Body, has remained mute. Let’s explore how we

can restore the church's reputation while also making unbelievers disciples, as Jesus taught in Matthew 28:19. Use all available tools and methods to reach the masses. This session will also highlight the new studios as an evangelism tool.

(Main Scripture: Mark 2:21-22).
