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!

Psalm 73:28; "It is good for me to draw near to God."

"You are as close to God as you choose to be" (Rick Warren). When our youngest daughter Chelsea was young she was extremely 'busy' to say the least! Always being gregarious (as she still is ), she was known to wander off and start chatting to other people and 'kuiering'. Now the Afrikaans word “kuier” does not translate easily, and, in the the dictionary, it says that it means to “visit” or “stroll".  But to us in South Africa, it is so much more than either! Anyway, that was what Chelsea was known for. I recall one day whilst living in Accra, Ghana where she, after having been told told not to wander, was, unbeknownst to us, up an escalator and out of sight - yes, 'kuiering'! As soon as we realised she had gone I was up the escalator frantically looking and calling for her. I eventually found her, and after that experience, she never wandered off again. Why? She was separated from her Dad and as soon as she realised that, it was scary for her. She understood how important it was to stay close to her Dad and Mom. Now for us, as followers of Christ, we should want to stay as close to our heavenly Father as possible. We need to remain "strong in the Lord and in the power of His might" (Ephesians 6:10). There is a battle out there, and it is a spiritual one. Some respond to it with paranoia, others with extra-biblical strategies, whilst others choose to ignore it or obsess about it to their detriment. Scripture tells us a different story. It tells us that the approach to the spiritual war is to 'stand firm' (remain strong in the Lord), immerse ourselves in truth (God's Word), choosing to cling to it regardless of our emotions and circumstances. May we choose to stay as close as possible to our Father and stand firm.
