Beyond the Label: Standing in Faith for Special Needs Children – Pastor Stephen and Charity Shelton

Parenting children requires faith. Parenting children with special needs requires a special kind of faith. We believe that the grace of God is available for every parent and that there are answers available from heaven that guide our children into their full calling and perfect will of God. This course is designed to equip and encourage parents who have children in unique situations with unique challenges.

Parenting in the Household of Faith – Pastor John Jester

We put the Word of God first place and make it final authority in every part of our lives, and that includes how we raise our children.  In this course, we will explore what it means to parent by grace through faith. We will cover topics that will include establishing a household of faith, the biblical role of a parent, and how to apply faith principles to your relationship with your children at every stage of development. We will tackle tough issues by establishing the Word of God as first place and final authority in every family situation.

The Heart of the Father: Prepare to Foster and Adopt Children – Pastor Brian Sanders/Pastors Holden and Kathryn Hanley

We have all been adopted into the family of God and fostered by His love, mercy, and grace. When it comes to children who are in the foster care system or who have been born into difficult situations, God has called His Church to be the answer. If you are interested in learning more about the process to foster or adopt, this course will provide a overview of that process and equip you with the information needed to demonstrate the love of God in this practical way.

Faith Filled Marriages – Pastor Al Velez

Without faith it is impossible to have a marriage that is pleasing to one another and to God. Our marriages are meant to be the example of Christ and the church as Paul reveals in Ephesians chapter 5. Faith Filled Marriages is a four-week, interactive, Bible intensive that will begin with The Great Mystery revealed in Ephesians Chapter 5 – Christ and the church, and identify the corresponding actions revealed in God’s Word for husbands and wives.

Whether single, married, no family or multiple, we all will leave a legacy.

Intentional Wealth Achieved God’s Way – Pastor Peter Henneberry

Do you know that it is the will of God that you prosper?  3 John 2 talks about as our soul prospers, so will the rest of us – but what does that actually look like? How do we live in God’s supernatural flow on a consistent, daily basis? During this course, you will learn God’s prosperity is not based on your self-effort or your performance. More importantly, you will learn to walk in God’s daily supply.
