Beyond the Encounter: Inviting God into Your Everyday Decisions

Brian Henritze

It’s easy to listen to God when you’re at a retreat or a conference. The music, the speakers and the presence of the Holy Spirit are powerful. But what happens when you go home and the feeling of encounter fades? This workshop will discuss simple, practical methods to stay connected to the presence of God allowing Him to guide you in your daily decisions so  you will continue to climb toward the heights of holiness.

Going to the Heights of Holiness

Rev. Ryan Higdon

Pushing past barriers, burdens and boredom to reach the heights of holiness and excellence with Christ takes work. Take a look into the life of a normal guy who became anything but average by choosing an adventure with Christ. If you want to be a saint, then it means a bit of adventure.

Esperanza en el Perdón 

Rev. Henry Cuellar

¿Batallas con el pecado y te preguntas si aun Dios te ama? ¡Todos estamos llamados a la Santidad! Esta es nuestra meta final. Pero el camino a la Santidad se ve diferente para cada persona. Ven y escucha al Pd. Henry hablar sobre su llamado, como lo saco de una vida de pecado y como hay esperanza para todos. “No tenemos que ser perfectos, solo tener fe en amor de Dios.”

La Adventura de la Santidad

Lily Morales

La santidad es un estilo de vida revolucionario que te mantiene fiel a lo más profundo de ti, libre de toda forma de esclavitud, y dando fruto en nuestro mundo. La santidad crece a través de gestos pequeños: rechazando las críticas, escuchando con paciencia o diciendo una palabra amable a una persona. Solo necesitamos tomar un momento para enfrentarnos a nuestro yo verdadero y descubrir nuestra razón de ser. ¿Te animas a emprender la aventura de la santidad?

Location: Bosque Theater (morning), Lonestar 103 (afternoon)

women's workshop

Who Runs the World? Girls.

Katie Prejean McGrady

In his letter to women, St. Pope John Paul II talks about the best virtues of women: their tender compassion, their commitment to work, their ability to pinpoint problems and solve them and their desire to give freely of themselves for the good of others. When we know what we women are made for (greatness, holiness and tenderness) then we truly are able to rule the world, for Jesus.

men's workshop

The Struggle is Real (Men’s Workshop)

Chris Ochoa

Scripture tells us that “strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor 12:9). The real measure of a man then is not “how strong is he?”, but “how weak is he?”. Being men who struggle is not always such a bad thing.
