Developing a Discerning Heart: Deeper Personal Walk and Peer-Helping

September 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - October 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Registration for this module is now closed. Check back for another opportunity in 2020!

Hosted by: SIM USA     Charlotte, NC

Facilitated by Ramonda Lunsford

Based on the manual Developing a Discerning Heart, by Entrust. Do you sense there is MORE about “freedom in Christ” than you are enjoying in your relationship with God and others? Every believer, at every stage of maturity, has new ground to gain in experiencing the truth that has set them free in Christ.   God’s heart for His children, and the work of His Spirit, is to expose the underlying lies that run and ruin our lives and, layer by layer, replace them with the redeeming truth that restores us more fully to the joy of God’s Image in us.  Learning to discern the great information contained in our thinking, choices, feelings, and desires is a lifetime exercise. As we grow in this understanding and change in our own lives, we are better able to help others as well. Matt 7:5.  Some advance preparation.

This development experience will help you build confidence and discipleship skills that strengthen your ability to step into the opportunities God is putting before you!  Invest now in a relational learning experience with peers, in a lovely setting for renewal and growth!   Learning is done in interactive peer-groups, guided by experienced mentors, with a maximum of 10 women in each group. First come, first serve!  Register by July 26, 2019. (After this date, contact us to see if places are still available.)

We will enjoy a worship time together on Sunday morning and a Free Afternoon on Wednesday for a break to rest or to enjoy the area for some fun/relaxation.

Advance Preparation: 
Upon close of registration, you will receive the preparation assignment 2 months ahead of time, for those modules that have advance prep, so that advance work can be reflective, reasonably paced, and enjoyable. (Interactive sessions are normally dependent on advance preparation.) Be praying now that God will use this time powerfully in your own life as well as for the sake of others you will encourage and mentor.

Though we will enjoy stimulating interaction and friendship, this is an intensive course, so we will also be interacting together in full days.  But by being undistracted together for the week, you may even get a bit more sleep than you do at home! J  (No husbands, children, pets, . . or chocolate you don’t plan to share!)
