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!

Philippians 3:13-14 (NLT); “No, dear friends, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven.”

Firstly, Sally, Cara, Chelsea, Chad and I wish you and yours a year that abounds in God’s peace, love, joy, and wonders anew in your walk with Him! It is a privilege for us to be called your friends. As you consider the text above and the year ahead our prayer is that we would remember one thing, whatever happened last year, whether in your career, your family, or your church community, failure is not final. The deal is this: The future is wide-open. Likewise, as 2016 ends and 2017 begins, it is an ideal time for you and I to do some “spiritual-housecleaning’. Perhaps the questions we need ask ourselves are; Has there been spiritual progress in my life? Has my relationship with Christ grown closer over the past year? Finally, have I grown and developed in the gifts that God has heaped out in my life? As we consider this deeply, one thing is certain as we get our ‘brooms’ out, all of us bar-none have erred this past year, we have made mistakes, taken wrong turns, made poor decisions and are in serious need of a ‘tune-up’, a ‘check-up from the neck-up’, and some rigorous house-cleaning. For me, it is time that we refuse to see our current situation from our own limited perspective and worldview, and chose God’s perspective. Whilst we will always see the immediate view, God already sees the ultimate. So, may we choose to re-evaluate what we are doing both in and with our lives? May we choose to cast aside that which hinders and weighs us down? Importantly, let us get real and radical and truly forgive and seek forgiveness from those we have wronged and who have wronged us, refuse to carry that baggage around for one more day. If it is slowing you down and baulking you in the race of life it is a hindrance – lose it … today. Far too often we are crippled by our past failures and sin and, research tells us, most of us tend to keep repeating those things. Refuse to do that. Forget the former things, learn from your mistakes, and ‘fail-forward’! So may we refuse to live in the past and choose to move forward with every ounce of our being as followers of Christ? My prayer is that you and I, as we enter a brand-new year, ask God to speak into those areas of our lives that need to be rearranged, changed, and start with our house- cleaning and do not cease until it is deal! Bless you guys – Happy New Year!
