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!

Isaiah 43:18; “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.”

As we enter another year in our lives of challenges, new beginnings, opportunities, adventures, and great prospects, perhaps we need change our outlooks as we do. Many of us are not able to enjoy the present or prepare for tomorrow and New Year because we are still living in the past. Warren Wiersbe states that; “You do not move ahead by constantly looking in a rear view mirror. The past is a rudder to guide you, not an anchor to drag you down. We must learn from the past but not live in the past.” Thomas Holdcroft seems to nail it by stating that; “The past is a guide post, not a hitching post.” Worth thinking about – perhaps it’s a great opportunity for all us to give ourselves a ‘check-up from the neck-up’! One thing we know for certain, every single day going forward with God is fresh. It is for us to now set our past assumptions of Him aside and venture with Him, because what we have seen from Him in the past is absolutely nothing compared to what He is going to do!
