Leading SMALL

As kids’ ministry leaders, leading kids towards a genuine relationship with God and others is our number one priority. But how many times have you asked yourself, “Are they missing it or are they truly getting it? Do they really know God personally? Do they know the power they can have right now, as a child?” I believe that the Lead Small model of leadership can help you answer those questions. This model of leadership is centered around doing for a few what we wish we could do for many. In this breakout session I will share my experience, as well as practical ways you too can “Lead Small.”

Effective Ministry Approaches to LGBTQ People

Churches worldwide are grappling with the question of ministry to people who come to us saying, “I’m gay,” “I’m trans,” or “I’m lesbian.” Many of our families, too, are dealing with loved ones who have “come out” to them and are looking to us for guidance and support. How will the modern church respond? In this workshop, Joe Dallas will draw on his 35 years of ministry experience in this area and explain the ministry approaches that have not worked, other approaches that are not Biblical, and ministry approaches that are practical, easy for any church to adopt, and biblically sound. A definitive model for ministry to gays, lesbian, and transgender people will be explained and proposed.

“UNCHARTED TERRITORY” – When you don’t fit the Ministry mold!

(Isaiah 43:19) God is always doing a NEW thing – Even when we don’t have eyes to see it! It’s CRAZY how we struggle to embrace such new things, especially when they challenge our assumptions, change our routines, and throw us off our game. Often as pastors/leaders, we feel like we need to project strength and competency in order to minister effectively. But deep down, we know our own limitations, our own weaknesses, our faults. We still fear that if people knew who we really are, we’d be disqualified from Ministry. But in God’s new things we’ll find springs of living water that turn deserts into gardens an impossible situation into places of hope. If you don’t feel like you fit the mold, maybe this is the invitation to try something new. Will you follow Jesus into uncharted territory?

Addressing the “Gay Christian” Movement

Many women and men are now claiming to be both gay and Christian, either by embracing a reinterpretation of the Bible that condones homosexuality or by choosing celibacy and calling themselves “Gay Christians” who are a “Sexual Minority” that should be recognized within the church. Modern Christians are challenged to respond, first by refuting the “pro-gay theology” and second, by challenging the idea that “gay” and “lesbian” are terms Christians should identify with and even celebrate. Joe Dallas, who served on staff with a gay-affirming church from 1978-1984, will explain how to confront and correct these misconceptions, and how to dialogue with grace and respect with those claiming a “gay Christian” identity.

Matthew Larson *Location: Prayer         

“I Do Not Think That Means What You Think it Means.”

Towards a Biblical Definition of Prophets and Prophecy The promised Holy Spirit poured out at Pentecost, unleashed the prophethood of believers, and answered the prayer of Moses, “I would say that all would prophesy.” Much of Christianity today neglects the role of the prophet. Christians who do acknowledge prophetic ministry commonly limit the impact of prophecy. Pentecostals, who embrace the role, often do not have a full biblical understanding of what a prophet is and what a prophet is to do. This session will work to understand the biblical role of prophets and encourage sons and daughters to live as prophetic witnesses in the community. This prophetic ministry model could help contemporary believers develop discernment to engage the culture and confront the day’s voices in the power of the Holy Spirit.

One Family, One Church, Don’t Forget the Teens

It is vital that the teens in your family and at your church, feel that they belong, are valued, are loved, and are needed.  After 2020 and due to the pandemic, teens have become increasingly isolated. Depression, self-harm, and suicide rates amongst teens, especially girls, are increasing at an alarming pace. Teens are longing for connection and a sense of community, in their own homes and in their local churches. That sense of belonging should start at home and spill over into our congregations. Engaging teens in your church will be critical in reaching families for Christ and keeping them involved.

As kids ministry leaders, leading kids towards a genuine relationship with God and others is our number one priority.

The Pentecostal Origin Story

You may know the origin story of many Superheroes… but do you know your Pentecostal origin story?

“UNCHARTED TERRITORY” – When you don’t fit the Ministry mold!

(Isaiah 43:19) God is always doing a NEW thing – Even when we don’t have eyes to see it! It’s CRAZY how we struggle to embrace such new things, especially when they challenge our assumptions, change our routines, and throw us off our game. Often as pastors/leaders, we feel like we need to project strength and competency in order to minister effectively. But deep down, we know our own limitations, our own weaknesses, our faults. We still fear that if people knew who we really are, we’d be disqualified from Ministry. But in God’s new things we’ll find springs of living water that turn deserts into gardens an impossible situation into places of hope. If you don’t feel like you fit the mold, maybe this is the invitation to try something new. Will you follow Jesus into uncharted territory?

Speaking of Homosexuality: Having the Dialogue

Countless numbers of believers have friends or family members who hold pro-gay views, and who consider the Biblical view of homosexuality and transgender to be “hateful” and” archaic.” Christians are left wondering how to explain, and then defend, our position with clarity and grace while striving to maintain good relations with people we love who disagree with us. Joe Dallas has participated in debates and discussions on this topic for over three decades, and at one time, as a gay activist, he also promoted the very positions he now refutes.

“I Do Not Think That Means What You Think it Means.”

Towards a Biblical Definition of Prophets and Prophecy  The promised Holy Spirit poured out at Pentecost, unleashed the prophethood of believers, and answered the prayer of Moses, “I would say that all would prophesy.” Much of Christianity today neglects the role of the prophet. Christians who do acknowledge prophetic ministry commonly limit the impact of prophecy. Pentecostals, who embrace the role, often do not have a full biblical understanding of what a prophet is and what a prophet is to do. This session will work to understand the biblical role of prophets and encourage sons and daughters to live as prophetic witnesses in the community. This prophetic ministry model could help contemporary believers develop discernment to engage the culture and confront the day’s voices in the power of the Holy Spirit.

One Family, One Church, Don’t Forget the Teens

It is vital that the teens in your family and at your church, feel that they belong, are valued, are loved, and are needed.  After 2020 and due to the pandemic, teens have become increasingly isolated. Depression, self-harm and suicide rates amongst teens, especially girls, are increasing at an alarming pace. Teens are longing for connection and a sense of community, in their own homes and in their local churches. That sense of belonging should start at home and spill over into our congregations. Engaging teens in your church will be critical in reaching families for Christ and keeping them involved. Parents need a church that can partner with them to usher their teens out of the dark, and into the light. This workshop will help leaders rise to that challenge.
