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!

Pride and finishing the race. PDF  | Print |  E-mail

2 Timothy 4:7; “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

"When I have learned to do the Father's will, I shall have fully realised my vocation on earth" (Carlo Carretto). There is no higher achievement than completing the assignment God gives us. So, we need ask ourselves, are we completing the task that He has given us in the manner He would have us do that? Whilst I can speak particularly from a worship/preaching perspective, an area that Satan gets involved in wholesale, it happens in any ministry and we need to understand where it’s coming from. That we wouldn't let pride, selfish gain, or any other method Satan would throw in the mix to ultimately thwart and divide a growing community or ministry. May you run your race in a way that you will be satisfied with later. It is heartening to be able to look back and have no regrets. Paul was not always popular, nor was he usually comfortable; but he remained faithful. That is what really counted. Paul’s life and ministry provide for us a powerful example for modelling Christ today. Not only did he “fight the good fight,” but he also “finished the race” and “kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).
