Spokane, WA – October 10 & 11, 2014
The Prophetic . . . For some the mere mention conjures unpleasant images as in: I never want to hear that word again! For others, there’s general confusion and uncertainty. For others, a measure of benefit, mixed with: “I’m tired of the nonsense.” There is a great need to understand what makes up a prophetic person in mind, temperament, and calling, beyond just a gift and its expression.
Over the years, as I have talked to many people individually, I have been both encouraged and surprised by how helpful and impactful some things I have shared can be. Often things I might consider basic, or commonly understood, are “big news” to others. I have come to realize that in spite of about 100 years of Pentecostalism and 50 years of things Charismatic, this matter is still not well understood, particularly from a new covenant perspective of integrated personality wholeness. There is a lot of “giftedness” and “gift expression” out there. Not a lot of wellness.
I decided to offer a compilation of a lifetime of experiences and private conversations into one intensified seminar on this topic. I am happy to announce with appreciation and anticipation that the family of God at The Bridge in Spokane will be partnering with me in offering this seminar, to which you are invited, October 10 and 11, 2014. Registration deadline is August 31. 2014.
Understanding the Prophetic Mind, Temperament, and Calling Seminar
This will NOT be:
- another “how to prophesy,” here’s your gift,” here’s your “ministry”, “what is your ministry office,” seminar.
- a spiritual gift technique, “bless me-give me a word,” let’s indulge ourselves in hours of introspective “propheticness” seminar.
- based on common Pentecostal and Charismatic stereotypes and expressions of this topic that many might have been exposed to, for better or worse!
- about gift expression in a meeting
- only for Ephesians 4 prophets
My burden is for the psychological and relational wellness of prophetic vessels, and those who relate to them in community–for an effective and redemptive kingdom expression of that gift, in a new covenant, grace-based, relational paradigm, integrated into apostolic purpose, mission, evangelism. The emphasis will be on relational health and wellness: within our selves, with God, with one another, and in the world for His kingdom testimony’s sake.
This is for anyone who is, or thinks he/she might be, or has any “prophetic” leanings at all in his or her personality; those who would like to better understand the “prophetic” people in their lives (maybe you are married to one!) and what makes them “tick;” and those called to father/mother/equip/disciple young prophetic vessels.
I am unaware of any opportunity like this “out there.” I encourage you to attend. Please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone you might know that you think could benefit from this. You can download a .pdf brochure with all the seminar logistics and details by clicking here.
