Getting men in groups is a little like herding cats. We are fiercely independent, somewhat private, and don’t like to feel vulnerable. So how can we help men get past those barriers and experience the best God has for them? In this workshop we’ll explore best practices for helping men experience healthy, life-changing small groups.

All of us have parts of our lives we wish were different. But embracing our prickly parts--our faults & failures, weaknesses & regrets--is absolutely essential to our spiritual growth. In this seminar Mac talks about how having a child with special needs not only exposed his weaknesses, but paved the way for necessary spiritual growth.
Tyler Loomis - Toward Oneness Marital Intimacy or Isolation
Lake Country Campus • February 4, 2017 • Tyler Loomis
Sex is a result of intimacy. Sex provides intimacy. But sex within marriage is also a metaphor for intimacy - a reflection of the unity that exists within God himself: The Father, Son and Spirit. Emotional, sexual, and spiritual intimacy are the gifts and the intention of a Godly marriage, but how do we get there? In this seminar, we will look at the pitfalls of passivity, dominance and resentment that hinder the path toward biblical unity as God intended it and the call of husbands in the face of those pitfalls.
