2. Purpose & Power (What is my purpose? Connecting to your Kingdom assignment)
Everyone is on a search for their purpose. Identifying our purpose should not only benefit us personally, it should benefit the Kingdom of God. When we serve and seek God, all other things are added and we begin to operate in our perfect plan. This class will help you on the road to discovering and walking in your divine purpose.

How do you talk to God?? You have to speak the language. This class will help you learn how to use your bible and to learn and speak the language of God. How do we search the bible to help us with circumstances and problems? How do you pray in order that your prayers are heard by God? We must speak the language of our big brother, Jesus. This class will help you.

5. “Real Love” (Tools for living a thriving marriage and not oppressed by image)
Statistics show that Christians have the highest divorce rate, yet as Christians we should have the tools to make that a lie. This class will help you strengthen your marriage and learn how to live 1 Corinthians 13. Many marriages are phony and consumed with generational curses, mental and emotional abuse, and oppression. Leading families out of crisis to Christ – begins with the individual and the marriages of our saints.

6. Christ-Like Communication (In a society of technology we have lost the art of meaningful communication – how do we re-connect to touch the lives of people)
Christ was the master communicator. The bible discloses that Jesus not only talked to the disciples, but it reveals that he listened. Many Christians avoid having real conversation and or managing conflict. This class will help you develop the tools for stronger communication skills and help us better understand how we use communication to draw others unto Christ.

Teacher: Rev. & Sis. John Williford

7. I’m Saved, Now What? (Transitioning from Discipleship to Living for Christ)
This class will help you navigate your way out of discipleship class into the ministry. What should I do once discipleship is over? How do I join a ministry? How do I live a Christian lifestyle beyond class? How do I get support?
