It is essential for today’s church leaders to recover a biblical (rather than cultural) definition of hospitality in order to fulfill God’s purpose for the church. Scripture presents hospitality as a vital ministry for both men and women to practice in order to advance the gospel and model God’s welcoming heart.
There are many admonitions in Scripture for us as believers concerning our duties toward one another in the church. In this seminar, we will discuss a number of these responsibilities, with an emphasis on how to apply them, so that all in our church would be edified and Christ would be exalted.
During the past few years, more and more people have been confronted with the stark reality of death, and many of us have had to admit to feeling unprepared for the conversations that arise with those struggling with this reality. This seminar will offer a biblical approach to shepherding those we love through the crisis of suffering, fear, and loss by examining key aspects of counseling that highlight the believer's duty to weep with those who weep in love.
