Kali and Danny Luecke.A "thin space" is a place on Earth where heaven feels closer. Our prayer for our home is that it would be a thin space, a place where people meet God. God has given us an incredible tool for seeking His kingdom - our home and more specifically our dining room table. Come to this workshop and learn how we can use hospitality and our homes to live missionally.
Laura Cooper.Rooted in a synopsis of John Piper’s book, “Don’t Waste Your Life”, this session will challenge prevailing ideas of what it means to live by faith, and focus on the power of risk in the promise of God. We will share scriptures and principles to answer those who question choices you make to glorify God that are counterintuitive to the world's economy.
David Michael Smengee, John Bayon.Sit with us in Malachi, the Spirit’s diagnostic text for our session. Let’s talk and pray about upholding the mission King Jesus has given us and encourage one another for costly service under Christ.
Kate Abraham, Calvin Gross, Rachel Reiss, Paul Abraham; The sin of idolatry is hard to ignore during medical school -- desiring the best education, the most knowledge, the best grades, entrance to a top residency program, popularity, respect, comfort. Praise Jesus that the Gospel offers so much more than that, and for the accountability that the Body of Christ (including the CCHF network!) provides. Come hear the stories of four very imperfect medical students as they pursue a perfect God and His commandment to make disciples of all nations.
Janet Aguirre, Katie Huff; You don’t have to have an MD or MBA to be used by God. God calls us all to be missional in the way we approach our jobs, and every other area of our lives. Janet Aguirre and Katie Huff, a medical assistant and a registered nurse, will share stories and experiences. They never expected to be thrust into leadership roles at a grassroots homeless clinic, but offered their training and their path to honor Christ, and have learned/are learning what it means to live missionally. Doing work that is often unfamiliar with their training, God is using them and teaching them how to walk out the adventure of serving God’s purpose in one of the most broken communities in America.
Daisey Dowell; You know that you've been called to serve in the inner-city. However you sometimes wonder how you can effectively serve in a community whose culture may be quite different from the one that you have always known. This workshop will utilize discussion and case study illustrations to provide practical steps that we can take to better understand the culture, and engage more fully, with the community that we have been called to serve as urban missionaries.
2017 Conference - There & Back Again, A Hobbit's Tale: God's Faithfulness in Long-Term Overseas Medical Mission Work, Start to Finish
How does God call normal, broken people into service cross-culturally? In an interactive session, Dr. Doug Collins will share how God called his family into medical missions in Cambodia 2001-2011, the lessons learned along the way, how their 10-year career as missionaries was brought to a close, and how God has proven faithful through it all. During this session, he will also explore the advantages and disadvantages of long-term work vs. short-term work and of serving as a single vs. married missionary. Time for discussion will be given throughout. Doug collins
2017 conference - "3 out of 10 ain't bad": advice for the considering, or new to, relocation and missional living
Relocation and missional living can be exciting and mundane; fulfilling and disappointing; enlightening and confusing; fruitful and barren. Come learn with several brothers and sisters at various stages in this process, who will share their struggles, victories, and advice as they have joined Jesus in the at-risk areas of our cities. There are many fears and misconceptions regarding relocation and missional living which might prevent disciples from moving to and remaining in “hard places”. In this session, we will seek to challenge and encourage those considering relocation, as well as empower rookies with pearls from those with more experience. Tyler Whitaker
Addressing the mindset needed to weave relevant truths of our living faith into contemporary practice in seamless, mutually edifying, and fruitful ways. Bill Morehouse
It is easy to think that living missionally is something you will get to when you complete your training - when you have more time and control over your life. Russ Ayers
