  • Our Royal Authority:” Our identity and positioning in Christ is recognized in the church but generally not appropriated. Our identity does not shift depending on our behavior.
  • Money: A Kingdom Weapon:” Having money is not wrong. The question is: Do we have money or does money have us?

THEO-LOGIC: Evidence of God

“THEO-LOGIC: Evidence of God Conference”—Real information and tools to talk with and debate those claiming science as “disproof” of God. Available sessions include:
  • ‘Fine-Tuning’ Theory of the Universe—The Anthropic Principle:” The creation of the universe and the life within it can only exist inside of an extremely narrow range of perimeters in terms of the laws of physics.

  • Proof that the Bible Was Written by God:” A look at the three types of Biblical prophecy and mathematical odds of their fulfillment by chance.
  • False Evidence of God:” Exposing the deception of the occult, parapsychology, New Age and false religions. These “false evidences of God” are deceiving our children and creeping into the Church.

Is Politics the Church’s Business?

Constitution II
“The Church and Politics”—What every Christian should know about our government and politics from an informational and objective viewpoint. 
  • The Meaning of ‘The United States Constitution’ and ‘The Bill of Rights’:” A breakdown and explanation of the archaic language and meaning of the Constitution and our rights as listed these critical documents.

  • The Christian’s Responsibility in Government:” Does a church’s involvement in politics work against the call to evangelize the world? Is there a way to reconcile the two without compromising either? Should a Christian ever not vote? How do we interact with those who won’t discuss facts and only want to argue and insult us and our convictions? Does praying for our government even matter?

Evangelism: Answering the Hard Questions

Casting Nets
“Equipping the Saints for Evangelism—Information provided on the most effective ways to answer the “hard” questions asked by non-Christians, atheists and even those in the church who don’t agree on the Biblical stance on many difficult topics. (Facts only, no debate.) Some questions include:
  • Is there really a hell? How can there be if God is a loving God?
  • Why do bad things happen to good people and good things to bad people?
  • The “good person” dilemma—why isn’t that enough?
  • How can you say Jesus is the only way when there are many other religions?
  • What happens to people who’ve never heard of Jesus or who aren’t capable of understanding the Gospel?
  • Doesn’t living in a democracy mean we can choose what we want to believe?
  • What does the Bible say about controversial social issues?

Is the Occult Really Just “Fun and Games?”

Dabbling Stats
“Under Cover of Light”—Exposing the deception of the occult, parapsychology, New Age and false religions. These “false evidences of God” are deceiving our children and creeping into the Church. 
  • The New Age Movement: “Spirituality” has become the mantra of the NA movement, claiming that it doesn’t matter what you worship because all paths lead to God.
  • Witchcraft and the Occult: More overtly evil than the NA, occult activities are still being increasingly depicted as practiced by “nice” characters in books and movies, deceiving people into believing that occult practices are simply “harmless fun and games”.
  • False Religions: Every major religion (outside of Christianity) contains some flaw in its logic when followed to its end: Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and, the coming world religion—Chrislam.


Keys to Leadership

Leadership Key

Leadership—Must-know principles for being an effective leader in the Kingdom of  God.
  • The ‘Do’s and Don’t’s of Leadership:” The good or damage done depends on whether or not people in leadership abide by specific Biblical principles: operating under Kingdom authority, loyalty, unity, stewardship, servanthood, and forgiveness and trust.
  • Kingdom Vs. Democracy:” The laws and requirements of a kingdom operate very differently than those in a democracy. The Kingdom of God is not a democracy and Jesus is not our president. Confusing the two has consequences in the life of a Christian. Leaders need to know this and teach it.
  • Motivational Giftings:” Leaders operate very differently based on their motivational gifts (Biblical personality types). Knowing the various perspectives through which others view circumstances, will help to determine which leaders should counsel whom and lessen conflict between leaders.

  • The Parable of the Good Soil:” What is “good soil” and how do we get rid of “hard ground,” “rocks,” and “thorns” in our hearts to cultivate fruitfulness?
