SESSION #2: Effective Conflict Resolution: Overcoming the “Junk” that Separates Us

Based on Jesus’ simple comment: “Blessed are the peacemakers.”

We all experience conflict: With our spouses, our children, our co-workers, our employees, other folks at church. Sadly, most of us never truly learn how to resolve conflict. Sometimes we settle for compromise—but the conflict remains.

This is the session where you will learn the proven strategies that lead not just to compromise–but with true and lasting consensus.

Every Christian should either be a mentor, have a mentor—or, do both.

SESSION #4: The 7 Keys to a Worry-Free Money Life

Your Money: How to Get It, Give It, and Grow It!

Millions of Christians are living in financial bondage that destroys their peace and relationships. This is where Steve helps the 70% of people who are in financial distress. Jesus warned, “You cannot serve God and money.”

Based on updated material from his popular and internationally acclaimed, No Debt No Sweat! Seminar, Steve outlines the essential keys to “getting it right with the money.”

This is a session for teens through retirees—and for those who are struggling and those who are doing very well with the money.

SESSION #5: Brand YOU: How to Share Your “Life Message”

This is Steve’s favorite session. “Brand You” is the most unique session of all. This is where Steve draws upon his 30 years of experience in the advertising world to teach Christians how to “heard” above the noise of our culture.

Each of us has a vital “Life Message” to communicate to our “Essential Target Market.” Whether your ETM is a spouse, a prospective client, a student, children, friends at church, or your employer—without knowing how to effectively “brand” yourself your “Life Message” will get lost in the clutter.

Scripture teaches the importance of communicating Godly principles to the next generation: “And these words which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” (Deut. 6: 6,7)

This is the session where Steve will teach you how to communicate your personal life message in clear, persuasive, and memorable ways.

Here’s How It Works…

Typically the Re-Tooled & Re-Fueled Essential Christian Life-Skills Seminar is hosted in a church building or other public venue. Some churches use the seminar simply to minister to their own people. Other churches promote it throughout the neighborhood-or even the city-as an outreach ministry.

Usually the seminar includes 5 sessions, each approximately 45-50 minutes in length. There are several effective ways to host a Re-Tooled & Re-Fueled Seminar:

1) 1-Day: An all-day Sunday event is a wonderful way to build church-wide enthusiasm and support. Generally, all-day Sunday events begin by presenting Session #1to a combined (adult and teen) Sunday school. Sessions 2, 3, 4, and 5 usually begin at 4:00pm and conclude around 8:30. (Times often vary based on individual congregations’ needs and desires.) Usually the church provides a light sandwich supper after Session 3.

2) 2-Day: Sunday and Monday-Presenting Session 1 as a combined teen/adult Sunday school; Sessions 2 and 3 on Sunday evening; and Sessions 4 and 5 on Monday evening. (This format is especially effective for congregations interested in using the seminar for outreach and evangelism, since un-churched people are frequently free on Sunday and Monday evenings.)

3) 1-Day: All 5 Sessions on Saturday

4) 2-Day: Same as #2, except we present the sessions on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. (Either 2 or 3 each evening.)

The Blessing Your Church or Group Will Receive By Hosting a Re-Tooled & Re-Fueled Essential Christian Life-Skills Seminar:

From his unique perspective with decades of experience in both the business world and the church, Steve understands that Christians face the same problems that most of our secular face. The trouble is, unlike business and sales people, Christians are rarely taught the vital life-skills necessary to survive—and thrive. God’s people are in the same jam that our secular friends face. As a matter of fact, our plight may actually be worse. Christians tend to hide their struggles. Frequently, they’re in denial-and we’re not talking about the river in Egypt! We’re talking about a dysfunctional lifestyle that depletes spiritual vigor and zeal for the Lord’s work. And, the devil loves it!

A Re-Tooled & Re-Fueled Seminar teaches Christians how to free themselves from bondage and live the spiritually vigorous and victorious lives that God intends. As Christians learn that holiness (not happiness) is the ultimate goal—they begin to experience true joy. Attendees see that they have been attempting to fill the holes in our hearts with stuff. Yet, with closer examination, we see that these holes are shaped exactly like Jesus-and, nothing else will fill them.

The Re-Tooled & Re-Fueled Seminar is designed for insightful Christian leaders who are dedicated to equipping their churches with the tools and skill-sets necessary to go the distance in a very dark and difficult world.

What you will get…

Each participate in the 5-session, 5-hour seminar will receive a Re-Tooled & Re-Fueled Seminar Workbook to enhance the learning experience and facilitate at-home study and follow-up.
