Experiencing the Peace & Power of Who You Are in Christ

We live in a world that encourages us to seek fulfillment of our core longings in things other than Jesus. Unfortunately, the foundation of our true identity in Christ can be lost to things such as acceptance, success, demands of life, comfort, self-protection, etc. In this seminar you will learn what it means to be defined by Jesus and the building blocks of self-definition in Christ. You will also experience the power that comes from living out of your true identity. Come and experience the unshakable uncertainty of who you are in Christ!

Program Topics Include:

  • The Journey to Self-Awakening
  • Sitting Securely at the Table of the Lord
  • Moving from Mastery to Mystery
  • Self-Awakening and the Holy Spirit
  • Self-Definition and the Holy Spirit
