Spiritual Retreats and Worship Workshops.

Since returning to Cape Town it has been awesome being invited to teach and facilitate at various church retreats and Worship Workshops and Conferences. Whilst the retreats have only been predominantly for Men's Groups or Ministries within the ambit of Christian Spiritual Formation and male spirituality, I do also enjoy taking couples. Regarding the Worship Workshops, this can either be for the ministry itself, or a worship-leader specific in-depth practical and spiritual workshop. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss the possibilities of us getting this together for your church!

Spiritual Retreats: These range from single-day retreats to, what tends to happen mostly, those that are given over a weekend. I am able to travel should you wish me to do so.

Worship Workshops: Those that tend to work the best are given over the course of a day. Most churches tend toward that being a Saturday. What we deal with is basically discovering our highest calling and how we best serve God within that given our talents, gifting, and leadership abilities for those who have been called to lead. "The power to bless the world around you is a direct result of your ministry to the Lord" (Gerrit Gustafson). In these workshops we speak into what worship is, our calling within it, the anointing, worshipping in "Spirit and in Truth", and, among other areas, worship and the Presence of God. This normally takes until lunch-time. After lunch we get stuck into the practical side of church worship. This moves from instrumentation, vocal, harmonies, utilization of 'light and shade' in what we do, planning worship sets, best key options, and a host of other areas. I always summarise what we have learnt and mail that through in PDF format to each participant. Should you wish me to attend practices after that, I will gladly do so. I look forward to hearing from you in this regard!

1 Corinthians 1:27-29; “God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that he may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God.”

I was speaking to a man at a church here in Durbanville a few months ago who was convinced that God had called him into ministry. I have heard this statement many times before from different people so my first response is always “when do you believe He first called you?” The reply in this instance was 20 years ago. My response was; "Then why the wait!?" Most of those who believe they are called and do not act on it, state that they became paralysed by fear. Fear of the unknown. Actually so much so that they felt as though they stopped growing, stopped learning, stopped exploring, stopped discovering, and even stopped dreaming. Why? All, bar none of them, stated that because they felt as though they had chosen average, or easy, or ordinary, and this let the routine of life put them in a rut. Is that you? So whilst I cannot tell you what to do, here are my five-cents worth: when you feel that way remember a hero or two in Scripture. I mean think about this with me. There was Noah who was fond of wine, actually really fond of wine. Abraham was too old, Jacob was a liar, Moses had a stuttering problem, Rahab was a prostitute, the Samaritan woman was divorced (more than once), Saul (Paul) as a Pharisee was too religious, and Lazarus was … dead. Yet, and if you believe this message is meant for you, here is the real deal: they all played a huge role in Biblical history and they are the heroes of the faith, as sinful and as ordinary as they were. God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Bless you!
