2017 Family Camp Talks

Here are the talks from  the 2017 Family Camp:

Speaking with the enemy: Lessons from Jesus’ conversations with those who opposed Him

Speaker: Geoff Lloyd
Description: As we try and live like our saviour, we inevitably encounter resistance and questions just like He did. This week we’ll look at several occasions in Mark’s Gospel when Jesus responded to his enemies’ questions and traps. My prayer is that as we see the Master at work, our love and awe of Him will grow and we will be better equipped to face the challenges of our friends and neighbours.

Talks:

Grace in Affliction: The Story of Joseph

Speaker: Erik Stolte
Description: It’s a well known story full deception, a murder plot, betrayal, injustice and eventual rise to power. The story of Joseph has held readers spellbound for centuries. But what is it really about? Well, its not so much about Jacob, Joseph, or even the brothers. It’s really the great story of how the sovereign God of all grace deals with weak, afflicted, sinful characters … like us.

Talks:

Martin Luther – his life and times

Speaker: David Bayne
Description: This year is the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg so David will be speaking on Martin Luther – his life and times and the flowering of the Reformation.

Talks:

2017 Discipleship Camp

 

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what.

Hebrews 4:12-13

The focus of the Christian Discipleship Camp is to equip young people for life through Bible teaching, practical lessons and discussion.

You might be about to consider leaving home shortly – maybe to move onto studies and flatting, or perhaps a career and even starting your own family.

As we become adults in this crazy world we often come under pressure to conform to the ‘worlds wisdom’. It can be overwealming dealing with your friends and family that may view Christianity just a fairy story. We aim to give you encouragement, wisdom and tools to continue in strength with your walk with the Lord.

This camp is designed to help you live ALL of LIFE for GOD.

Topics covered include:

  • How does Christianity stack up compared to other religious worldviews?
  • How can we maintain our walk with the Lord once we leave home?
  • Christian Flatting: a howto guide!
  • What is my calling in life?
  • How are we to relate to the world?
  • Defending our faith against naysayers
