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!

Mark 16:15; "He told them, "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone."

"While the good news of the gospel may not appeal to everyone, the bad news of the gospel still applies to everyone" (Matt Chandler). Let’s be honest: much of what we hear preached today, especially by the so-called ‘celebrity’ (TV) preachers, is, quite simply, ‘gospel-lite’. Spot the number of times you hear the word Jesus spoken, the cross, sin, repentance, and that there is in fact ‘bad news’ for those who do not believe. Most of all, the good news is interpreted as being that God wants us to be healthy, wealthy, and successful, and all we have to do is think positive thoughts and all will be well. That’s not what the gospel says at all. The word “gospel” literally means “good news” which is that God will give us pardon from our sins and eternal life with Him in Heaven, if we will turn away from our sins and turn to Him, accepting His Son, Jesus Christ, as our Saviour and Lord” (John 2:16). What about our text today? Well, the emphasis is on faith and believing. Think about this with me: In 1 Corinthians 15:2-4 Paul explains that the three elements of the gospel are the death, burial and resurrection of Christ on our behalf. That our sinful nature died with Jesus on the cross, was buried with Him, and, that we were resurrected with Him to a new life (Romans 6:4-8). I love what Paul implores us to do, to “hold firmly” to this true gospel, the only one which saves. For Paul, and every follower of Christ who has not been duped by the false gospel and teaching, that believing in any other gospel is to believe in vain. In fact, in Romans 1:16-17, Paul also declares that the true gospel is the “power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes” by which he means that salvation is not achieved by man’s efforts, but by the grace of God through the gift of faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). Those who are saved by the power of God will always show the evidence of salvation by a changed life. What are we called to do with this changed life? To tell everyone about it!
