How do we live our lives in such a way that when we share the Word of God, we speak with the wisdom and power of the Spirit? Gary Wilkerson breaks down how we cultivate a heart that listens to the Spirit's directions. A ministry that is built around the Lord's Word alone will have a unique fire and life at its center.
Believers and spiritual leaders are called to risk everything to make a difference in the world. John Bailey talks about the incredible, wild life that the Great Commission summons us into as we obey Christ's command. The cost of living this way, though, can be high and turn the world against us.
Every generation has its own unique questions that the gospel can address if church leaders are sensitive to the spiritual needs of their people. In this session, Tim Dilena explores how the church can avoid getting caught in cultural movements and miss the chance to minister to people's real spiritual needs.
Over 80 percent of the unchurched have a believer in their life whom they trust. The popular saying that actions speak louder than words in evangelism is false; actions speak before words. Barry Meguiar points out that God has uniquely placed us to boldly share the gospel with others.

Have you ever stepped out in faith to follow God's will only to feel like God didn’t go with you? In this session, Tim Dilena discusses what we should do when the first step of obedience feels like we made a mistake.

What do you put your hope in? We’ve all been trained in church to say “God” automatically, but is that really true? Gary Wilkerson explores how the great falls in our spiritual walks happen when we’ve placed our aspirations on something other than Christ. He discusses how we can desire good things in life without putting our hopes on anything other than God.
We all have seasons where we become discouraged and question God’s plans. Often the ways that Jesus moves in our lives or the lives of our loved ones doesn’t make sense to us.

God’s grace will carry his children through terrible, impossible situations even when we can’t see a way through. How do we understand the way God’s power and the presence of the Holy Spirit give us hope as we face very real issues of evil and suffering? Chris Palmer explores the biblical answer to this question.
Many pastors are weighted down by increasing expectations among believers for bigger churches and better performances on the stage. Chris Palmer spends this session dismantling the impossible pressure that church leaders face to be perfect. The church is not called it be perfect; it’s called to be anointed with the Holy Spirit.
None of us are exempt from a desperate need to die with Christ and be brought into new life. Living a holy life isn’t just hard; it’s impossible without the Spirit’s power.
