Workshop Info

At Journey you will have the opportunity to attend two workshops! Here are the workshops to choose from: (Full descriptions coming soon)

Session One | An Invitation to…
1) Build your friendship with God - Sustaining lifelong friendships involves intentional choices and habits, and so it is with our walk with God. And yet, it is often easy to get lost in knowing how to launch! Often, after we have started, we sometimes we feel like we are in a rut. In this workshop we will explore and practice ways to connect more deeply with God through our devotional lives.

2) Find your place in God’s purposes and story - Can God really use me to help others in their faith? What role does God have for me? My ministry to others doesn't look like I want it to, What should I do? If you have things you’re curious about around these questions come join our conversation to hear more about what God may have for you.

3) Expand your intake of the Bible - Why memorize a verse when Alexa can quote them all? Why spend a semester studying a book when my iPhone can play the message series in a weekend? Why read pages of black and white text when I can watch the Bible come alive through creative video? Come join us as we discuss modes of Scriptural intake in today's culture, how these influence the way we approach and handle the Bible, and what we can learn from our rich heritage in The Navigators as the next generation of learners, leaders, and lovers of the Word.

4) Overcoming obstacles in sharing your faith - Sharing your faith scares many of us. It causes many of us to avoid the topic completely. In this workshop we will learn to grow our heart for people, their need for the Gospel, and some of the obstacles we all commonly face. Our goal is to help see the value of sharing our faith and develop some practical steps you can take back with you to Campus.

5) Become captivated by God’s heart for the world - God's love for people extends to every corner of the earth. Learn what the Bible says about God's plan to bring the Gospel to every tongue, tribe, and nation. We will investigate together what Jesus said about His heart for the world in the book of John. Finally, we will see how God is bringing the nations to each of us and look at some practical steps on how to engage with international students on our campuses.

Session Two | An Invitation to…
1) Transition By Faith: Moving Ahead After College - Moving ahead after college challenges you to live-out your faith and to trust God with the next chapter of your story. It's a season to listen to God, to your inner-self, and to those people you trust and who love and care for you. Then, you must move ahead with the PRESENCE of God alive in you, according to the PURPOSE of the gospel, and by the POWER of the Holy Spirit. It is God alive in your story, "Go therefore..."

3) Give your summer to short term missions - Have you begun to ask God what He has in store for your summer? Have you considered using your summer to take the gospel to a corner of the world that is desperate need of it? Hear from past participants about their experience ministering to the Muslim people of the Sea Tribe Islands in SE Asia. You'll discover how short-term missions can be used in the lives of others and learn how to take practical steps towards pursuing this once in a lifetime experience.
