SERVICE and SEMINAR OPTIONS
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT EMPHASIS
These messages would emphasize the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and living the Spirit-filled life and there would be prayer at the end of each service for people to receive the baptism or to be refilled. This has been a very popular emphasis and has been well received by congregations across the country.

RAPTURE / END-TIMES EMPHASIS
These messages would deal with the events we see happening in our world today and our need to be ready for the rapture of the church. Also, we would preach on the end-time events that follow the rapture and relate them to what we can learn about God from them and what it has to do with us today.
EVANGELISTIC OUTREACH EMPHASIS
This emphasis is geared strictly for reaching the lost. These services may be held at the church as a special emphasis or at an auditorium, a park, etc.
EACH OF THESE EMPHASES CAN BE DONE AS A ONE-DAY EMPHASIS OR AS A SERIES OF SERVICES. WE ALSO CAN DO ANY COMBINATION OF THESE EMPHASES ON A SUNDAY OR AS PART OF A SERIES OF SERVICES.
This seminar would cover principals of prayer and would be helpful in developing a person’s personal prayer life and would encourage participation in the corporate prayer life of the church.
This seminar deals with the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit listed in I Corinthians 12 and 14. In this seminar we look at what the nine gifts are, why they are important, how they are to operate in the church today and how we can be an instrument God can use in the gifts.
This seminar deals with teaching the basics of evangelism. Some of the things that are covered are: how to lead someone to Christ, how to approach someone with the gospel message, how to find people to lead to Christ, how to follow-up on people we have led to Christ, etc.
EACH OF THESE SEMINARS CAN BE DONE ON A MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT, A FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY OR ON A SATURDAY ONLY.
ON THE SUNDAY BEFORE OR AFTER THE SEMINAR, WE WOULD PREACH MESSAGES THAT WOULD EITHER LEAD INTO THE SEMINAR OR BRING THE SEMINAR TO A CONCLUSION BY ENCOURAGING THE PEOPLE TO GO OUT AND PUT THE INFORMATION INTO ACTION.

An Unsanctified Saint?
Are we perfect? Not likely....but our position is what really matters! When talking with others about Christ we need to clarify that none of us are perfect, but what God really desires is a relational position that allows Christ to have lordship and leadership of our lives.
