In today’s day and age, children are under a wave of social experimentation exercised by the education system, government leaders, celebrities, media, friends, family members and the list goes on. The social experiment is focused on the heart and mind of every human being. We see the effects of it in our society with the rise of suicides, violence, substance abuse, and hopelessness. This lays a heavy burden on families and the church! This workshop will give Sunday school teachers, teens/youth leaders the passion and tools to equip their students with practical Bible insight on why they matter in this world and to see themselves in the eyes of their Maker.
God calls every person to fulfill His perfect will. We always have a choice. To stay in the good will. To walk after Him in His calling, is to walk, not stand still, but to walk, fight, and to win. Not to be afraid to make mistakes, which will always happen. But His promises are true - He will be with us. Joshua son of Nun is a bright example in knowing the Perfect will, knowing His voice, obedience and mistakes, life in defeat and in victories. My personal examples, mistakes and victories will be highlighted in this topic.

My personal path from principal of a private Christian school to CEO of a Charter school. -What is a charter school?
-How is it different from the very well-known public schools? -What are the main stumbling blocks in understanding the concept of charter school system?
There are countless questions leaders can ask themselves to measure their growth. For example: How can I improve? How can I grow spiritually? How can I gain wisdom? How can I improve relationships with those around me? Growth is the only guarantee that tomorrow is going to get better. You cannot give what you do not have.

How can Sunday school teachers best support parents and include them in our ministry to maximize our impact on children’s faith?
As ministry leaders, we cannot deny that partnering with parents is a big need in our churches. But, what does this actually look like? Is it just sending home parent worksheets and the occasional text message or is it something more? Perhaps the answer lies in shifting our focus entirely from children to families. This workshop explores practical ways you can help parents embrace their roles as the primary spiritual leaders in their homes through the support from your Sunday school classroom.

Equipping leaders to help families navigate the world of technology. Tech is a subculture that is native to young users while remaining foreign to older users. Technology should be used as a tool to equip the church and share the Gospel. Rather than being feared, it should be carefully embraced with an understanding that the enemy is also using this tool.

Providing satisfying answers to questions about the scientific credibility of the Bible is a critical skill for any educator seeking to establish their students in the Christian Faith. There are currently over 300 natural "clocks" demonstrating the recent creation of the Earth. This workshop explains several simple, easy-to-remember examples of such Earth clocks. It will equip you to show to others that the millions and billions of years that evolutionists promote are merely a current consensus rather than a fact of science.
Everyone is not perfect, including young leaders. With that in mind, Apostle Peter pinpoints a few areas that people in authority should consider and a few areas that those under authority should consider. Those under authority will be challenged in their submission to authority, dealing with pride, learning to trust God, and the battle against temptations (1 Peter 5:5-11). Those who are in leading positions will be challenged in the things mentioned above but also in serving willingly, without personal agendas, and leading by personal example (1 Peter 5:1-4). This lesson is targeting leaders to challenge them in different stages of their roles in order to effectively lead the people of God.
General Session 1 - Creation of the Identity
Friday - April 29, 2022 | 6:30pm - 7:20pm
A minister should know the truth about creation in order to gain true wisdom and true longing. True wisdom in understanding the intention of God about the creation of the earth and of man. By true longing, I mean sadness about permanently lost harmony of paradise.
This seminar answers two questions:
-According to God's plan, who was man created to be?
-What would this world look like if we never lost God's original plan for it?
Practically, the value of the seminar, is to care for the zeal of the ministers of youth to restore the lost identity in every person.
General Session 2 - The Lost Identity
Saturday - April 30, 2022 | 9:30am - 10:30am
A minister must understand the teaching of "The Fall", in order to participate in true battle. When speaking of true battles, the Bible implies the battle for the heart of a person. Note the difference, not against the heart, but for it. When we say heart, we understand that it means the mind, feelings and desires of the individual. This seminar was created with the goal to learn the constant battle with sin - any thought or desire to live outside of, or against God's plan. On the other hand, we will learn to wrestle for a wise mind, right heart and holy feelings.
General Session 3 - Reborn Identity
Saturday - April 30, 2022 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm
A minister must know the truth about the redemption of the person and birth from above, to have true joy. Only in observation of God's Glory in His identity and deeds can bring true joy. We await the restoration of the lost paradise, and God creates the world and a person in greater glory than the glory of paradise. And the great joy is in the fact that we have the invitation to share this glory now, in serving children. This seminar was created to see how we can be participants in the work of the Holy Spirit over the identities of our dear ones. All of our work in this conference and in our local churches, we do for His Name's Sake.
