Seminar 1 Options

Brokenness & Emotional Health (Part 1) Steve Lee

Peter Scazzero writes, “Many are supposedly ‘spiritually mature’ but remain infants, children, or teenagers emotionally. They demonstrate little ability to process anger, sadness, or hurt.” This seminar will explore the ways in which the brokenness of our past causes a distorted view of God, others, and ourselves. Our emotions become one of the most important windows into that brokenness. Thus, we will also explore how processing our emotions can help us get to the core issues of our heart, and understand the ways in which God desires to move us beyond our brokenness and into the image of Christ.

Note: Due to the extensive content of the lecture, the Brokenness & Emotional Health seminar is for both sessions on Thursday. You must sign up for both lectures if you want to participate in this seminar.

Knowing God’s Will Paul Chi

Children are often asked this question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Over the years, this question can develop into quite a confusing dilemma. As we approach our young adult years, we are filled with questions like, “What career path should I follow?” “Who should I marry?” “Where should I live?” Do I have any real choices in my life or is it all just destiny?” In this seminar, Pastor Paul will offer both a biblical and a practical perspective on this important topic of knowing God’s will.

Christian Authenticity: Finding your truth in the True God Edward Kim

Authenticity is something we all seek today. We look for it in our friends, leaders, celebrities, and our church communities. We hunger for what’s real in a world where we are fed so much that is fake. We tire of the constant routine of bringing out our manicured identities only to meet someone else’s. Most of all we crave to be true to ourselves—if we could only know who that is. There comes a time when we must leave the funhouse mirrors of Facebook lives and come face to face with the true God. It is only in Him that we come to find our way to the truth of our own lives.

The Post-College Life Assignments Steve Chang

There are some things in life that can wait. But there are few things that should be done earlier as they can set the destiny of the rest of one’s life. Discover the three things that every young man and woman should absolutely do before the age of thirty.

Small Group Leadership KJ Kim

In an attempt to give people a place to get into each other’s lives and shepherd one another, the small group system is an invaluable component of many churches and fellowships. Maybe you’ve even been asked to lead one or are leading one. Have you ever thought, “What is a healthy small group?”, “How can I better lead and shepherd my group?”, or “How can I better foster a sense of community in my small group?” Pastor KJ Kim will discuss essential elements to having Christ-centered and God-honoring small groups.

Gender Identity Min Chung

One of the most publicized and debated topics in our time is the issue of gender identity. Major celebrities, legislation, and culture in general seem to be heading towards acceptance of individuals who want to identify with a gender different than one’s biological gender. How can we understand this issue through the lens of Scripture? How should Christians navigate ministry to individuals and the wider culture? This seminar will help provide a biblical framework for God’s intent for gender and also give wisdom on how to be people full of grace and truth on this topic.

Seminar 3 Options

Heart Motives (Part 1) Sang Caleb Kim

“All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD” (Proverbs 16:2). What makes us get angry, frustrated, or depressed? Why are we drawn to certain people but can’t seem to “click” with others? Why do some memories linger for years when others are forgotten in a moment? The revolutionary heart motive system will address these questions and help us get to the root of our thoughts and actions.

Note: Due to the extensive content of the lecture, the heart motives seminar is for both sessions on Friday. You must sign up for both lectures if you want to participate in this seminar.

Singleness Jung Lee

Did you find anyone yet? You’re still single! When are you getting married? It’s difficult not to see singleness merely as a waiting or preparation stage for marriage when everyone around us treats singleness as a disease to be cured. But what does the Bible say about singleness? Can we actually call singleness a “gift”? How should we view this blessing that often feels more like a curse? And how can we care for singles in the church? We’ll examine this topic to help singles live out this particular calling in a redemptive way.

Pursuing the Mission Together Scott Daniel

This topic surveys the work of Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the early church in Acts as they pursued God’s mission and talks about ways we can each glorify God with our gifts in the great commission.

Coffee, Con’s and Christ. Why did THAT happen? Pete Leonard

In 2007 Social Entrepreneur Pete Leonard blended Passion, and Purpose to found Second Chance Coffee Co.; His Passion is roasting and distributing truly exceptional coffee, and his Purpose is seeing God transform the lives of post-prison people. By June of 2009 Pete completed the invention of the company’s coffee roasting system and Second Chance Coffee Company began roasting commercially. Shortly thereafter, it adopted the DBA “I Have a Bean.” The business model of I Have a Bean is as simple as it is unique: Meticulously select beans from the top 1% of coffee in the world, roast and deliver them the same day, and hire post-prison people into an environment that allows them to shine through the simple dignity of work. But why? In this session, Pete will answer the ‘why’ and relate how he realized this specific vocational calling in his journey of “Work on Purpose” He will talk about how God is in businesses… all types of businesses, and relate some of his experiences in establishing and running an unusual for-profit business that helps a particular group of people to redream lives.

Heaven Touching Earth Mitch Kim

11am on Sunday morning remains America’s most segregated hour, even though Jesus prayed for, the early church modeled, and Paul prescribed a church united across cultures (John 17:21; Acts 13:1; Rom 15:7). Sadly racial division in America’s history is propagated often driven by the church. But the power of heaven gives us power to transform the broken realities of earth, both inside and outside the church. In this seminar we will look at how heaven’s grace enables the church to embrace unity in diversity so that we might “welcome one another as Christ has welcomed [us], for the glory of God” (Rom 15:7).
