Understanding and Avoiding Apostasy

Tragically several high-profile Christian leaders have fallen from the faith in the last year. This workshop will consider three crucial theological and pastoral questions about apostasy: (1) Why do leaders fall away? (2) How can we guard against falling away? (3) How should we treat those who fall away?


Fighting Sin and Temptation

Every Christian, but especially Christian leaders, must fight a constant battle against temptation. This workshop will encourage leaders that through Jesus they can live a “victorious Christian life” and will provide biblical strategies for resisting sin through the power of the Holy Spirit. It will consider three crucial questions: (1) Why are we tempted? (2) Can we resist temptation? (3) How do we resist temptation?
