Leadership Principles For Life (Leadership By Christ's
This workshop was the forerunner in the outreach ministry
workshops sponsored by Developing Fishers of Men.
This workshop was developed to teach four (4) powerful principles that
Jesus provided His disciples with (through His example) to aid them in
the development of godly men and women who are called to take on the
responsibilities of ‘Disciple-Leaders’ in
the Body of Christ (Matthew 4:18-19), as well as be
leaders in other areas of their life. This workshop will explore these
four solid, simplistic, yet powerful principles and teach how to execute
them in all four (4) corners of your life (i.e. work, community,
home and church) and to be successful in leadership/discipleship. In
this workshop you will learn Leadership Principles for Life.
- You will learn about bible-based Leadership
Principles that not only have application in the church, but also all four corners of your life (i.e. work,
community, home as well as church).
- You will learn that Discipleship
is not just about evangelism, but also Leadership; Leadership which
God ordained for each and every Disciple of Christ to be in this world,
but not conformed to its ways.
- You will learn how the riddle "You can lead a horse to
water, but you can't make him drink" is solved, and how its
principles have their application in teaching/training new converts towards the development of leadership.

Life, Love & Unforgiveness:
Most people can identify with 'Love and Forgiveness', but
few ever give thought to what is 'Unforgiveness' in their
relationships. Yet, unforgiveness dominates the lives of so many
people, more than they have come to know. And this fact does not exempt
practicing Christians who probably make up the bulk of people who are
in denial of their 'unforgiveness state'. This workshop will explore
what unforgiveness looks like and ways on how to navigate through its deadly spiritual consequences. You will
learn how unforgiveness is a secret weapon of the enemy that's
effectively deployed against Christians. (For a limited time, to obtain a
handout that contains steps towards exercising forgiveness, send an
email to the following address: ChurchAdministrator@wordsforyourlife.org
and make your request known.)
- You will learn how so many people have not
truly forgiven (maybe because they were never shown how to forgive) and
what the consequences for that behavior will be.
- You will learn what it is to forgive someone
from a biblical perspective and learn actual steps on how to approach
Time: 10:00AM to 1:00PM
Understanding Predestination Well Enough To Save Your Life:
So many people have read the scriptures that say that before
the foundation of the world they were chosen by
God, predestined to be His adopted child, yet
when asked why did God choose them over another, they are stymied and
unable to answer with any level of confidence or assurance. This
workshop will explore why you were chosen and take into account how God
does not violate a person's 'free will' or 'right to choose', nor does
He arbitrarily predetermine a person's salvation without their 'input'.
This workshop explores the answer to the questions of "what is the
essence of life" and "what is the greatest lie ever told by the adversary" that is still tricking people up
today and impacting them on reaching their spiritual
destiny and inheritance. This workshop raises the bar on our
becoming more accountable to God and challenges those who believe
- You will come to understanding how
Predestination is linked to living a holy life and how the 'biggest lie'
ever told has some Christians tricked into believing that they can
continue to live any kind of lifestyle and still obtain their spiritual

confidence or assurance in knowing why you were chosen which will impact
on how you will approach making decisions for the rest of your life.

Ethics In Contemporary Christian Life:
In this world, there are so many opportunities to abandon our
Christian ethics and integrity, yet most Christian do because of their
lack of knowledge. Most people don't have a clue about what Christian
ethics or what integrity looks like. This workshop will provide a
simplistic way of understanding from a biblical perspective what
Christian ethics and integrity really looks like. The impact of this
workshop has the potential to show you even more reasons why we need a
Savior more than we ever thought we did. This workshop will move a
person beyond wearing a 'gold cross' around their neck (as a ornament)
to figuratively carrying a wooden cross on you back. This workshop will
open your eyes to what scripture means when it says we must mortify our flesh. Also, aspects
of sanctification and holiness, and the spiritual transformation process
are covered in this workshop. This workshop will also cover the three
(3) divine characteristics of God and how they fit into the picture of
Christian Ethics and Integrity.

Integrity looks like in contemporary Christian life and Gain a better
understanding about the requirement to live holy and how it is directly

acceptable life before God, and to embrace the transformation process.
