THE DYNAMICS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST

Monday: The Genesis of Man
Tuesday: The ABC's of Relationships

THREE-DAY SEMINARS

THE GIFT OF HEALING
We ourselves, our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and parishes are in need of healing and freedom in Jesus. Is the Holy Spirit calling you to minister His healing to those who are ill, hurt, and brokenhearted? "The sick upon whom they lay their hands will recover" (Mk 16:18). This seminar requires three days — Mon, Jul 25, Tues, Jul 26, and Wed, Jul 27.

LIFE IN THE SPIRIT SEMINAR
Is God calling you to a new depth in your relationship with Christ in the power of the Spirit? Are you searching for something more? Do you have a thirst that has not been satisfied?

This seminar requires three days — Mon, Jul 25, Tues, Jul 26 and Wed, 27.

TWO-DAY SEMINARS

BIBLE TIMELINE: JOURNEY THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES
A study of Salvation History beginning with Creation and ending with Jesus and His Church will be offered in this two-day workshop. As you plot your individual timeline, you will gain an overall picture of God's design as outlined in the Bible. This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 25 and Tues, Jul 26.

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY TO STRENGTHEN YOUR PARISH
The fire of the Holy Spirit is moving in establishing small home-based communities in many places in this country and around the world. Are you missing out on the power that is present in living out your spiritual brotherhood and sisterhood? Come and learn about these comunities and their impact on parishes. "They devoted themselves to the Apostles' instruction, the communal life, the breaking of bread, and the prayers" (Acts 2:42). This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 25 and Tues, Jul 26.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP: STANDING IN THE GLORY
The Lord inhabits the praises of His people. Don't miss Bill Richart, a powerful Worship Leader, as he opens your eyes to the spiritual possibilities that come about through praise, worship and glory. Leadership is not about "leading" but rather discerning what the Spirit is doing and getting out of the way. This seminar is not limited to worship leaders, but it is a "must" for leaders of prayer groups and others who minister through worship. "My soul will glory in the Lord " (Ps 34:3). This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 25 and Tues, Jul 26.

HOLINESS: LIFE STYLE IN THE SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit wants to lead us into a new life-style of holiness. Matthew 6:33 tells us that if we seek the Lord's way of holiness, He will then supply all our other needs. This seminar offers the resources, opportunities, and encouragement to move forward. "God chose us in Him, before the world began, to be holy and blameless in His sight" (Eph 1:4). This seminar requires two days — Wed, July 27 and Thurs, July 28.

PSALMS: A BOOK OF PRAYER, PRAISE AND POWER
A psalm is the cry of real people in real-life situations. The writers of the Psalms cried out to God in very human conversation — in praise and supplication — in times of joy and distress. Look to this book to gain understanding of how to recognize the movement of the Spirit and to respond with heartfelt prayer. "I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart" (Ps 9:2). This seminar requires two days — Wed, July 27 and Thurs, July 28.

DISCOVERING YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS
Are you looking for solutions to the problems and chaos that surround us? Christ did not leave us without the resources to fight and build a different civilization -- one of love and life --- not of death and disaster. Thirty spiritual gifts are mentioned in the Scriptures -- gifts like teaching, healing, hospitality, and discernment. This course will open your eyes to the spiritual realities of God's Kingdom in today's world. "Set your hearts on spiritual gifts" (1 Cor 14:1). This seminar requires two days — Thurs, Jul 28 and Fri, Jul 29.

PROPHESY AND DISCERNMENT
How do you hear the Lord in the midst of confusion and falsehood? God does speak to us very clearly if we have the spiritual ears to hear and the wise hearts to understand. The gifts of prophecy and discernment are much needed and are being poured out on men and women of faith. "Set your hearts on spiritual gifts — above all, the gift of prophecy" (1 Cor 14:1). This seminar requires two day — Thurs, July 28 and Fri, July 29.

 

ONE-DAY SEMINARS

HOW TO BE A HOLY DEFENDER OF THE FAITH
Come and learn how to defend some of the basic beliefs of our faith. This one-day foundational seminar takes a look at the truths of our Catholic faith that are often misunderstood. "Should anyone ask you the reason for this hope of yours, be ever ready to reply" (1 Pt 3:15). This seminar requires one day — Wed, July 27.

AM I GOING TO HEAVEN?
This is the most important question of your life! Jesus tells us in the Scriptures that we are not to be presumptuous in our beliefs. But, rather we are to be confident in Him -- in His redeeming love. Our trust must rely only in Jesus as our Savior, Lord, and God. "He wants none to perish but all to come to repentance" (2 Pt 3:9). This seminar requires one day — Thurs, July 28.

GETTING TO KNOW THE GUADALUPE BIBLE COLLEGE
"Live according to what you have learned and accepted..."(Phil 4:9) This program is for those interested in learning more about being either a student or teacher (home study or classroom) for Guadalupe Bible College. This seminar requires one day — Fri, July 29.

THE GIFT OF HOSPITALITY
By opening your heart, your home, and your life to others, you will serve Jesus Himself. The Lord uses us and our homes to touch and heal those who are hurting and need a place of refreshment and peace. "Here I stand, knocking at the door. If anyone ... opens the door, I will enter his house and have supper with him" (Rev 3:20). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Jul 29.

THE GIFT OF INTERCESSION
Pope John Paul II has said that "prayer and fasting are the first and most effective weapons against the forces of evil" (Gospel of Life, 100). Learn how to be a prayer warrior in the army of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. "The fervent prayer of a holy person is powerful indeed" (Jas 5:16). This seminar requires one day — Fri, July 29.

THE LAITY: THE REAL EVANGELIZERS
The laity are on the front lines of our secularized society. Learn how to fulfill your calling from the Lord to bring light to the darkness by sharing the gospel of Christ. "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation..." (1 Pt 2:9). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Jul 29.

USING THE CHARISMS FOR SERVICE
Spiritual gifts that we hear little about are the gifts of mercy, service, hospitality, and helps. Yet, many ministries would flounder without them. Rich and Daneen Gosser will bring to this seminar their experience of the use of these gifts in practical ways. "Put your gifts at the service of one another" (1 Pt 4:10). This seminar requires one day — Fri, July 29.

WORSHIP

Worship is an important and integral part of the Bible Institute. Some of those who will lead us in worship include Presentation's Music Ministry, which is made up of many gifted and dedicated people. Paul Egan, Marianne Lander, and John Egan, along with others, have led the music in past years. The Holy Spirit is also anointing younger members of Presentation Ministry for worship through music under the leadership of Elizabeth Egan. The Lord uses them to bring us into a spirit of praise and worship at our liturgies.
