Battling Anxiety & Depression

by Elissa Lin Rathe
It’s not unusual for us to experience feeling down at times or discouraged, especially with all the pressures and expectations surrounding us. However, for many, this is something more serious than just an occasional sadness. Are you or know someone who is overly worried about things that others around you don’t seem to be? Before you go diagnosing or self-diagnosing, let’s learn what the real signs are and what we can do about helping someone or ourselves who may be struggling these ways. In this workshop, we will tackle anxiety and depression from Biblical and psychological perspectives. We’ll also gain a better understanding of the nature and causes of anxiety and depression, and what the Bible says how we can battle against them. Practical and scriptural steps will be delineated to help us fight against these common issues.

Creativity Isn’t a Talent

by Sam Won (afternoon only)
Creativity is more than just art or the performing arts. It’s the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination. Too often creativity is considered to be a talent or an ability, but as children of God, it’s a birthright. Having been created in the image of the Creator, it is only natural for us to create. This means that creativity isn’t a skill set, but a mindset. Dive deeper into your identity and learn more about the value of creating. It isn’t limited to just some of God’s children, but all.

God, is that you? Learning to Hear the Voice of God

by Ellen Hwang
Ever wonder if when you’re trying to hear what God saying is really from God or just in your head? If you’re looking for a formula, you can forget it because there isn’t one. God speaks to each person in different ways because He has created each one of us to be unique. We’ll learn how you can figure out what your ways are so as you grow in your relationship with Him, you’ll be able to discern what’s from Him and what’s not.

Who Am I?

by Josh Kim
Our identity is the foundation of our lives. What we think about ourselves and what God thinks about us ultimately shape who we become and what we do. As second-generational (or even third-generational) Asian-Americans, identity can be somewhat challenging growing up bi-culturally. On top of that, we also face the challenge of living out our Kingdom identity and culture in the world. This seminar will practically help out how we can discover our identity from a cultural perspective, kingdom perspective, and calling/destiny perspective.
