Workshop in Prophetic Ministry
When it comes to the gift of prophecy today, many Christians are hungry for the real thing. Especially over the last few years, we’ve been embarrassed and dismayed by false prophecies, questionable motives, and bizarre behavior in the realm of prophetic ministry.
Yet we know the Holy Spirit distributes gifts according to his will for the common good of the faith community. We are confident he offers the gift of prophecy for our strength, encouragement and comfort!
Toward that end, I offer an original, Scripture-saturated training in prophetic ministry based on my Master’s thesis on the topic. Featuring nine short blocks of teaching which can be divided into a Friday evening/Saturday morning seminar, I include real-life stories about exercising the gift of prophecy.
- Old Testament Prophecy
- Prophecy from Old Testament to New Testament
- New Testament Prophecy
- Proper Response to New Testament Prophecy
- Prophecy, Other Gifts, and Authority
- The Church’s Gifts from Jesus
- What About Women?
- Taking Ownership
- Two Views on the Gifts
I discuss how Old Testament and New Testament prophecy are similar yet different, what the gift of prophecy looks like, how to set healthy boundaries for prophecy (including how to evaluate prophetic words), the difference between the gift of prophecy and the role of prophet, how women fit into the prophetic picture, and how all these elements apply to daily life. I also clarify the arguments on both sides regarding whether supernatural spiritual gifts are valid today.
The workshop includes a variety of hands-on activations in a worshipful atmosphere so attendees can practice the gift of prophecy in a safe environment..
In addition to the workshop, I’m also available to preach on a Sunday morning and/or minister prophetically to your congregation. (To listen to my sermon on “Covenant Friendship,” click here: River City Church.)
