What is God's Will For My Life?  |  Mike Caponigro
Lakeshore C
It is God's will for you to read this paragraph. Yes, I'm talking to you. What are the odds that you would just happen to be reading it? If you do not come to this seminar there is a good chance that you will miss God's will for the rest of your life. To set the record straight, everything I just said is false. I have no idea if it is God's will for you to come to this seminar, but I think it could be a good idea. Can we even know what God's will is for our lives? This is the question we will seek to answer.

Sharing the Gospel: Why It Can Be So Difficult?  |  Kenny Hayes
Lakeshore A
Evangelism is often the thing all Christians know they should do but seldom actually follow through on. Come hear what separates the stories of success and defeat from the past 15 years of my journey as a witness for Christ. Our prayer is that you too can get over the "evangelism hump" to be used by God in amazing ways.

When You Grip Your Phone, Does Your Phone Grip You?  |  Jeff Beckett
Milwaukee Room
Today we have instant access to unlimited information, constant entertainment, and effortless connection to friends with a multiple devices we can carry anywhere. With great power comes great responsibility, and infinite potential to temptation as we look to technology to satisfy us.... and often we spend hours thumbing through our phone before we even realize it. But we need something deeper than a list of do's and don'ts to navigate technology's affect on our lives.

Depression: Its Causes and Cure  |  Mike Jackson
Executive AB
Any way you slice it, depression presents a challenge in the life of those it visits. It is often a challenge to know why one is depressed. It is often challenging to know why it won't go away. It is often challenging to determine why it is getting worse in one's life rather than beginning to lift or how it is affecting you or how to get rid of it. In this seminar, we hope to address these issues with the hope that people suffering from depression will leave with just that...hope.

No, this is not another relationships talk. Instead, it is about you and God. If the Gospel is the best news in the world, why doesn’t it feel like it?

Addictions: A Worship Problem with a Gospel Hope  |  Jonathan Saunders
Lakeshore C
Who is an addict? At first the answer seems obvious. Addicts are those who gamble, drink and do drugs. But the Bible expands the definition of an addict. According to the Bible an addiction is misplaced worship, not simply a chemical imbalance. This seminar will go deeper than most pop-culture seminars on addiction, examining the whole person-- heart, mind and soul, as well as the Christian hope offered to all who are stuck in addictions.
