2016 Youth Workshop – Henry Wan
It’s normal to worry about how other people see us. Sometimes, teenagers could experience a heightened sense of self-awareness when around other people causing them to act unlike themselves and feel uncomfortable being in their own skin. In this workshop, we will look at why social situations sometimes make us feel awkward and discuss strategies in how to be okay with being ourselves.

When was the last time you you heard a really great story? Maybe you couldn’t put down that novel you recently finished. Perhaps you loved that movie that you saw last weekend. The stories that engage us as we read, watch, and hear not only tell us about ourselves, they tell us about our Maker. Movies, TV shows, books and other forms of media – in addition to being entertaining – can be analyzed to potentially strengthen our relationship with Christ.

Whether you’re a Christian or not, you may be interested to learn about the types of challenges a person will face after finishing high school. As many youth pursue college, the opportunities for personal growth also come with challenges to faith and spiritual growth. In this workshop we highlight some of the common challenges people face as they transition from high school age to college age. This workshop aims to help prepare people to grow spiritually in the post-high school life. This workshop is not limited to just seniors but will be most relevant to those who are.

Without a proper framework for justice and social issues, we can easily become inconsistent with what we say vs. what we actually believe. In this workshop we want to consider what God says about Himself and how we are created in His image, and how those two things change everything about how we understand justice and social issues going on around us.

Loss is a reality for every person in this world including believers. We must grieve the painful losses of the past seasons of our lives before we can effectively embrace the present and the future. Grieving is part of God’s healing plan for our lives. Come find out why and how to do it!
In John 8, Jesus encounters a woman trapped in sexual sin and leaders trapped in religious bondage. Jesus teaches us in this passage how to fight the battle for people’s hearts instead of their behavior. When we learn to fight the right battles, true freedom comes to us and everyone we encounter.
“Divine Healing: Giving and Receiving with the Spirit of Christ” is a practical training on how to better position ourselves to both receive and minister healing in the power of Christ.
Emotional wounds and trauma will often result in debilitating lies being attached to those events. Left unchallenged, these lies will destroy any hope people have for joy and effective living. Jesus knows how to confront the embedded lies of our past with His amazing light and truth. Freedom and emotional healing is possible and available in this life, right now.
There are some Christians who act as if the Holy Spirit did not exist before the New Testament and ceased to exist as soon as the New Testament canon was completed. In truth, the Holy Spirit was actively filling and empowering people throughout the Old and New Testament and continues to fill and empower believers in our day. This teaching is designed to open our hearts to a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit in our day.
“Bounded Set vs Centered Set” addresses the danger of replacing our intimacy with God with a religious system of rules and regulations. True freedom and real transformation can only be experienced in a relational Centered Set.
“Modernity and World View” addresses how living in the Modern Era with our penchant toward Western Rationalism has robbed us of our spiritual perception and spiritual power. Recognizing these blind spots is the first step to recovery and toward the development of a learning curve for the supernatural.
