*Kindness: What does it mean?

Mary Beth Gladwell
Class Instructor
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 210

There is a lot of talk in our culture today about kindness. But what does it mean? In this session we will look at the New Testament, and especially at the life of Jesus, discovering the bar extends far beyond being nice. It will challenge us and excite us for the adventure God has for those who would set out to love in this way.

*Start Something New

Jeremy Stephens
Associate Exec. Director
Underground Network Tampa

Main Campus Cafe

The home church is a massive gift and the epicenter of incredible Jesus-centered activity. Yet, for some of us there is an itch to expand, experiment, and try new things. How do we innovate to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel in creative ways? Come learn how to develop environments that start something new.

*The "Downward" Call of God

Mike Woods
Senior Leader
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 204/206

Most of us want to be recognized, valued, and seen as someone of consequence. This is true in a culture that highly values status and accomplishment. It is also true within the church. This session will explore Jesus’ radical alternative to a pitfall that can so easily neutralize us from a life of fruitful ministry and promises true honor. 

*The Greatness of Being Small

Nick Hetrick
Biblical Counselor
Dwell Community Church

Building X

It's tempting to cast yourself as the main character in life's story. But if the least are the greatest, we should view ourselves as minor characters in God’s story even as we value our roles in his plan. This workshop uses Abraham as a case study to help us see both our smallness and our significance before God.

*The Reasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics

Mike Sullivan
Sr. Leader
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 205/207

Ever wonder how it's possible that the abstract language of mathematics can be used to make stunning predictions about the world we live in? We'll explore answers to this question, including those consistent with a biblical worldview.

*The Ways of Knowing

Jim Leffel
Teaching Pastor
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Auditorium

This session explores the Bible's teaching on the nature of truth and how we come to know it. Truth has three dimensions: propositional, practical, and personal. Each aspect of truth brings God's revealed Word into the breadth of human experience and draws Christians to a deep and fulfilling connection with the Lord.

*Bash: Portrait of an Ordinary Leader

Josh Benadum
Pastor
Dwell Community Church

Building X

E.J.H Nash, known as "Bash," was an obscure and ordinary man. He lacked charismatic leadership gifts. Yet he is quietly credited by some with the rise of 20th-century evangelicalism. This workshop explores his life and extracts lessons on the quiet but powerful nature of servant leadership. 

*Persevering through Persecution

Brandon Grant
Student Ministries
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 204/206

This class will focus on the early African Methodist Episcopal Church in America. We will learn about their founders and foundation, and how they used the gospel to overcome their sufferings in early America. 

*Why and How to Memorize Scripture

Ryan Weingartner
Class Instructor
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 210

Have you ever thought about memorizing large sections of Scripture but are uncertain how to start? This workshop will address motivational reasons for memorizing scripture and practical tips to help you become an approved worker, accurately handling the Word of Truth. 

Insights into Servant Leadership

Gary DeLashmutt
Teaching Pastor
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Auditorium

Isaiah's predictive descriptions of God's Servant were fulfilled by Jesus during His First Coming. But, since all Christians are called to be God's servants, these passages also contain valuable insights into how we should live. This material is personally challenging, fortifying, and useful for studying in small groups. 

The Master Teacher and the Rich Young Man

Taelor Gray
Pastor
Linden Life Fellowship

Main Campus Cafe Auditorium

In Mark 10 a rich young man displays his religious expertise to gain affirmation from the Master Teacher. Instead, Jesus invites him to follow a revolutionary command - this man sadly refused. His response gives us a peek into our hearts. True conversion repositions our priorities, giving us a new way to respond to Jesus. 

Who Is the Messiah?

Dr. Patrick Reeder
Equipping Director
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 205/207

At a time when leadership and institutions seem unstable, we sense the need for a strong leader. The Royal Messiah is a key figure throughout the Bible. Yet, what it means that He is Messiah often remains opaque. This session will get underneath that concept and show its implications for both following Christ and leading others.

*How to Struggle Victoriously

John Ross
Pastor
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 210

*Humble Ambition

Kait Casassa
Home Church Leader
Dwell Community Church

Main Campus Classroom 205/207

Paul argues that it is a noble ambition to aspire to the role of a spiritual leader. However, for many of us, the godly desire to influence others is polluted by our arrogance and self-promotion; for others, our insecurity and fears keep us from sharing in this aspiration. This session will explore how to develop godly ambitions. 

*Learning to Wonder

Brian Adams
Student Ministries
Dwell Community Church

Building X

Becoming great is to be a servant of all. One practical way of doing this is by devoting our mental energy to thinking about others - "consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds." In this session, based on Hebrews 10:24-25, we will brainstorm how to wonder about the people God has placed in our lives. 

*Spiritual Resiliency

Chris Risley
Senior Leader
Dwell Community Church

Scripture describes the Christian life as a race and a battle. In order to finish well, we must acquire spiritual toughness and resiliency. This workshop will include practical steps on developing your spiritual fortitude as well as discovering the connection between standing firm (toughness) and humility.


*What Is and Is Not Trauma

Greg Schad
Executive Director
Crossroads Counseling

Main Campus Cafe Auditorium

Trauma is an important topic these days that many have experienced. We know that the Enemy wants to confuse us - especially in our pain. This session will take a look at the distinctions of trauma and help us gain clarity. We will also explore paths to healing and resiliency.

Leading People Out of Porn

The Ethics of Recreational Marijuana Use

James Rochford
Pastor
Dwell Community Church

Why has public support for marijuana doubled during a time when research scientists have revealed its damaging effects? What should followers of Jesus think about recreational marijuana use?
