BREAKOUT SESSIONS

REPENT WHILE IT IS DAY—Regency D (Ballroom Level)
Pastor Jim Garlow*, Sr. Pastor, Skyline Church, La Mesa, Ca.; Author, Moderator; Josh McDowell*, Founder, Josh McDowell Ministries; Alex McFarland*, Religion and Culture Expert; Author; Nationally Syndicated Radio Host, Exploring the World; Todd Wagner*, Sr. Pastor, Watermark Church, Dallas, Texas
Repent is the first word of the Gospel (Mark 1:14-15). But it is a lost word in our culture and increasingly in the church. Yet it is a word we must recover and put into action. How do we deal with sin in the church, beginning with our own lives? How can we respond to the brokenness of sin redemptively and with a view to restoration? Our panel will seek to answer these and other questions.

 

UNITE ON COMMON GROUND—Columbia A (Ballroom Level)
Bishop Harry Jackson*,Sr. Pastor, Hope Christian Church, Beltsville, Md., Moderator; Pastor Hernan Castano*, Director, Hispanic Church Development, Houston Area Pastors' Council; Dr. Paul Kim*, Sr. Pastor, Antioch Baptist Church, Cambridge, Mass.; Bishop Angel Nunez*, Sr. Pastor, Bilingual Christian Church, Baltimore, Md.
Unity is an elusive goal among such varied expressions of the Church. Yet it was our Lord’s prayer that his followers “may all be one” – united (John 17: 21). The Book of Acts records again and again that the early believers were of “one accord” (e.g., Acts 4:32). They were united. With all the differences and diversity in the Church, how can we move closer to that ideal? Our panel will pursue solutions to this and other questions.

 

ENGAGE THE CULTURE—Congressional A (Lobby Level)
Todd Starnes*, Syndicated Columnist, FOX News Contributor; Host, The Todd Starnes Show, Moderator; Michele Bachmann*, Former Representative (R-Minn.), U.S. House of Representatives; David and Jason Benham*, Founders, The Benham Companies; Ryan Bomberger*, Founder, The Radiance Foundation
Engagement is the natural result of Christ-followers who are functioning as “salt” and “light” (Matt. 5:13-16). Thanks to Holy Spirit entrepreneurship, there are as many expressions of engagement as there are believers and local bodies of Christ. What does engagement look like in your context and community? What are some practical ways your church can make a positive difference? Our panel will trace out some ideas in answer to this and other questions.

 

SUPPORT YOUR SPOUSE WHEN THEY STAND FOR TRUTH—Lexington (Ballroom Level)
Dr. Wendy Castano*, Wife of Pastor Hernan Castano, Director, Hispanic Church Development, Houston Area Pastors’ Council; Pat Cureton*, Wife of Dr. Kenyn Cureton, VP for Church Ministries, Family Research Council; Lawana Perkins*, Wife of Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council
Ministry is a team sport and ministry spouses are the Most Valuable Players. Standing up for Jesus and standing firmly on the Word of God not only requires great faith and courage, but unwavering support. Now, more than ever, we face an assault on everything we hold dear. As pastors and ministry leaders rise up to proclaim the Gospel and its practical implications for how to live it out in society, the encouraging support of their spouses are critical to this mission. Often overlooked, undervalued, and rarely rewarded is this vital contribution. In this breakout for ministry spouses, you will be strengthened, inspired, and equipped to further God's purpose of standing by your ministry mates while they stand for truth.
