Breakout Sessions

Session 1: 3:00-4:00

Abiding in the Storms of Life

Ashley Reffit

The storms of life will come—they are inevitable as we live in a broken world. For each person this might look different, but Christ tells his followers to abide in him, even as the storms rage. Together, we'll make practical application of God's Word in our trials as we seek to rest and trust the Lord in difficult circumstances.

Cultivating Multiethnic Relationships

Yana Conner

Multiethnic relationships are the building blocks to becoming a multiethnic church and cross-cultural ministry. But, how do we do it without hurting others or becoming a token? Join this breakout session for a conversation on how to cultivate multiethnic relationships with a faith-filled heart.

Go Therefore and Make Disciples

Panel Discussion with Lesley Hildreth, Michal Rudolph, Erin Hardy, Bree Carnes, and Madison Collier

In Matthew 28, we are told to “Go therefore and make disciples.” This was Jesus’ last command to everyone before he ascended into heaven. This command was not to just share the gospel but to make disciples. In this breakout, we will discuss what it looks like to be obedient to this command in each of our various stages of life.

Single and Seen: Trusting God and the Hope That He Brings

Bonnie Shrum

Romantic comedies, TV shows, books, and songs all seem to center around relationships. Even the church places a high emphasis on marriage and family, so where does a single fit in? In this breakout, we will talk about how to stay centered in Christ and how the church can support and affirm singles, whether you are single and questioning God or walking with someone who is.

Session 2: 4:30-5:30

Everyday Evangelism

Elizabeth Hughes

God has given us relationships with family members, neighbors, coworkers, and friends who do not know him. In this session, you will learn how to ask questions and share your story to initiate spiritual conversations with the nonbelievers in your life.

Hidden with Christ (In Spanish only)

Betsy Divers

Discovering our true identity, enveloped in the intimacy and security we find with Christ, in God. 

More Than Music and Amen: Knowing God Through Worship and Prayer

Toiya Dunbar and Cherie Scholes

So much more than performance and spiritual discipline, worship and prayer are conduits to knowing God himself and living a life in response to his glory and grace. Join us as we go to God's Word to see our need for his power and presence in our lives and discuss practically how to use these tools to access it!

Sexual Sin and the Power to Move Forward

Lori Frances and Jessica Gravelle

For those who are in Christ, our sexual past and purity struggles do not define us. Christ offers us forgiveness, freedom, and redemption as we rest in our new identity in him. But it doesn't stop there! Whether we are single or married, the love of Christ then compels us to move forward in obedience as our old affections are replaced by a new and greater affection—Christ himself!
