CONNECT is a life-changing week of intense interaction with God and each other. As leaders from across Europe gather to learn and grow, the goal of Connect is to encourage, empower and equip those involved in student ministry. From the committed student volunteer to long-term workers, we want to share the message of the gospel more effectively within the European university environment and our own unique local contexts. The week will include worship & prayer, seminars, workshops, evening meetings, sports & games, and time to build relationships in small groups.
You will be asked to choose one 12-hour seminar from the list below during the registration process.
Reaching Today's Student
Instructor(s): John Koeshall Jr.
**Strongly recommended for first time attendees or as a refresher for long-term workers.**
The purpose of this class is to present the primary method of Christ in order to change our university campuses. The goal of this course is how to apply the biblical principles of discipleship, which Jesus modeled with His disciples, to your own individual contexts and campuses.
Instructor(s): Mark and Dalene Good
When the daily demands of life suck the oxygen from our spiritual sensitivity… when difficult seasons douse the flame of our faith...when we long for more than status quo spiritual maintenance – the Holy Spirit invites us to draw near and reignite our spiritual passion. Misunderstanding and uncomfortable past experiences can hinder us from pursuing the "forgotten God", the Counselor and Guide Jesus gave to shape and walk with us. Journey with us this week as we: 1) discover the Holy Spirit's pivotal role, 2) learn to partner with Him in prayer and in seeing practical evidences of His power, and 3) allow Him to renew and saturate us. "Every once in a while, God brings us to a crossroads...we either go toward a useless Christian life, or we become more and more on fire, giving our utmost for His highest..." – Oswald Chambers
The Psalms and the Christian Life
Instructor(s): Jason M.
This course will look at the Psalms from a variety of angles. We will see the Psalms in their Old Testament, Hebrew context and look at the importance of the Psalms in the New Testament and early Church. This course will then look at the Psalms today and how they are important and useful for our Christian life today.
Taking It to the Next Level
Instructor(s): Steve & Deanne Turley
Building Up Yourself and Those Around You to Better Serve
Each day we will delve into one (or two) proven ideas, concepts or tools that can help us become better servant leaders, both personally and within a team. Some of the topics we will be considering: Building Trust, Culture vs. Strategy, DISC assessment, Level 5 Leadership, Team vs. Hero, Redemptive Conflict, Defining the Win.
In addition to theory, we want to brainstorm ideas on the topic immediately so as to give the content impact and application beyond head-knowledge. Our objective is that every participant leaves Connect with deliberate, actionable steps and/or goals for each idea, concept and tool that we discuss.
