9:30-10:30 Finding Our Identity in Christ – Kirk & Melanie Lewis (DDC)

What’s your name? Who are you? What defines you? Our true identity stems from God’s perspective of us and connects us to Christ. Once we are convinced of our identity, we can be connected in intimacy and be compelled to industry to accomplish His good pleasure. Come explore the foundational truths of the iProcess.


11:00-12:00 Desperately Dependent Testimonies – Various

Have you realized that you cannot successfully live independently from Jesus? Have you discovered His divine enablement that produces personal empowerment? Come hear the stories of some who sought and are finding Christ relevant to their lives.


1:00-2:00 Finding Christ in Prayer & Parenting – Kirk & Melanie Lewis (DDC)

Parenting and prayer share very common ground – both deal with the developmental growth process between parent and child. It could even be argued that prayer is what a child does and answering prayer is what a parent does. Come consider how prayer is my conversation with God as my Father as I relate to Him as His child.


2:30-3:30 Finding Christ Relevant in War Time – Liane Brown (author of Refuge)

As a 10-year-old girl, Liane watched with excitement as Hitler paraded past her living room window in East Prussia. The hope of Germany became the monster of the world. Where could the millions of East German refugees who were forced from their homes turn? Liane Brown tells the story of how her family managed to survive despite brutal treatment and harsh conditions by finding Christ relevant in war time.


4:00-5:00 Finding Christ Relevant – Lane Gordon (Life Action)

As we turn from the brokenness in our life to the gospel and come to Christ, we are still in a “pursue and recover” stage. We have to stay as desperately dependent throughout our lives as we did the moment we came to saving knowledge of Jesus. He has to stay relevant to every area of our life! Come hear Lane’s story of how this has been true in his life.
