Seminar Descriptions
Finding Contentment--Lisa Ingram, Manhattan, KS
Are you satisfied with your life? Do you consider yourself happy? If the world has not brought you everything you want and you find yourself living unfulfilled, come and discover how you can find contentment.  We live in an imperfect world and understanding and embracing God’s plan for your life will help you find contentment.

From Disguised to Recognized--Kevin Ingram, Manhattan, KS
Do you live your life trying to fit in with those around you? Do your choices make you different from everyone else? This overview session of the conference theme will help you consider what you can do to be known as one of Christ’s followers and to realize that you are called to make a difference.

Generous Living--Dave Mack, Manhattan, KS
What does it mean to live a generous life? Talking about being generous, thinking generously, believing in generosity… none of these things matter unless they lead to generous actions. Come and learn practical ways to take on habits that will help lead to abundant, generous living.

Grow or Decay--Ione Parshall, Manhattan, KS
Between 45 and 55 our bodies switch from the free ride of youth to a mode of decay. So how can you make all of your years here on earth glorify God? What does growing in your 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond look like? This practical how-to method can help you identify problem areas and will guide you up the steps to real mental, physical and spiritual/emotional growth for a life that glorifies God.

Inevitable Change--Karen Moore, Manhattan, KS
Wouldn’t you rather be proactive about change instead of just reacting to it? We will look at how the seasons of our lives are meant to draw us closer to Christ and should be met with joy instead of fear.  Ecclesiastes 8:7 says, “…how can people avoid what they do not know is going to happen?”  Not one of us can avoid or ignore change, and if we rely on Christ, we can weather whatever comes.

It’s About Time!--Sherry Robinson, Phillipsburg, KS
How can a busy Christian woman find time to juggle the responsibilities and commitments placed upon her shoulders while abiding in Christ?  Learn how to utilize basic time management and goal setting skills to define your core purpose in life and prioritize activities.  God intends for us to embrace the blessings of a successful marriage and career with guidance from the Holy Spirit.

Making Your Home a Sanctuary--Dr. Juanita McGowan, Manhattan, KS
It seems loving, peaceful homes are becoming extinct. What can we do to ensure that they are a place of refuge and safety? Come participate in a spiritual, fun, and educational experience about how to make your home a pleasing place of ministry.  We can make our homes a sanctuary, where God is honored and joy and peace prevails.

Navigating Healthy Relationships and Technology Today--Emily Weddle, Manhattan, KS
Do you know that teens consider their parents to be their number one influence when it comes to relationships and sex?  Come learn how to help your student build healthy relationships in today’s technology world.  We will address the latest apps, social media sites, sexting, and how to navigate through these ever-changing options.  Our goal is to help you empower your students to live with intention, love with integrity, and experience wholesome relationships.

Share Your Story with Confidence--Patricia Runion, Manhattan, KS
No matter how spotted your life has been, Jesus can use you and your story to win others to a full life with him.  You are a daughter of the King and you are important in God’s plan.  Come and learn how to share your faith.  There are people around you who need to hear your story so that they will understand how their life can be healed and how they, too, can experience the fullness of a relationship with Him.

So You Think You’re Objective?--Dr. Steven B. Davis, Manhattan, KS
“Each of us tends to think we see things as they are, that we are objective.  But this is not the case.  We see the world, not as it is, but as we are—or, as we are conditioned to see it” (Stephen Covey).  I read the preceding quote over 20 years ago, but the insight it conveys started me on a quest to discover the world as it is, not as I was conditioned to see it.  I invite you to join me as I present what I have found and how it applies to the Christian worldview.

Spotted as Excellent--Natalie Holdren, Manhattan, KS
Using Cynthia Heald’s book, Becoming a Woman of Excellence, we will explore what your identity is in Christ and how you can best serve Him.  As we hunger for God’s perspective on success in a society that bombards us with conflicting demands, we’ll spend our time looking at the truths of God’s Word.

10 Things Your Pastor and His Wife Want You to Know--Jerl and Dani Joslin, Oklahoma City, OK
Come and learn how to show Christ to the local pastor and his family.  Many times congregations have high expectations for these full-time servants, but often forget to express gratitude and a Christ-like attitude toward them.  Come and learn how you can make a difference in the ministry of your congregation.

The Throne of Your Heart--Jessica Snyder, Holton, KS
It’s a fact: there is a single seated throne in your heart and someone or something is sitting on it all the time.  Who or what is sitting on that throne in your heart?  Join us to discuss how we can center every aspect of our lives on Christ and receive the blessings and joy that flow from His reign in our hearts.

The Race of Righteousness--Dr. Kimetris Baltrip, Manhattan, KS
Psalm 85 says “righteousness looks down from heaven.”  Through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior, we receive righteousness and a pure heart and mind which allows us to accept people who are different from us.  The Bible helps us to demystify our differences and encourages us to view others as Christ sees them and to pursue their salvation through the same peace and love that God showed when He pursued us.

Transformation: Living Life from the Inside Out--Sheryl Wohler, Wamego, KS
Come explore a lifetime of accepting who we are and who Christ created us to be.  Develop a fascination for appreciating others and accepting who they are, who Christ created them to be.  Transformation is taking on the love of Christ in how we view and serve others through a lens of love.

When God Says, ‘Don’t!’--Marcy Cassel, Manhattan, KS
The Ten Commandments are the well-known rules for daily living that start with “Thou Shalt Not…”  But, this seminar will help us discover the other instructions that Jesus and his Apostles gave us that simply follow the word “Don’t.”  This seminar will help us discover the “Do Nots” that are sometimes taken lightly and yet the strength of the Church can be measured by obedience to these Christian life guidelines. 

The You God Wants You to Be--Devin Wendt, Manhattan, KS
What God made me to BE determines what He intends me to DO! Come and discover your unique giftedness and personality so that you will understand yourself better, improve your relationships with others, and propel you to greater service in the Kingdom.  God is consistent with his plan for your life; as you mature and grow you will discover how to serve him well.

You’re Always Being Recruited by God: Preparing for God’s Interview--Dr. Donita Whitney-Bammerlin, Manhattan, KS
Will you be ready to do what He needs you to do? Come and develop an understanding of the process that helps you be equipped for service: 1) Networking with other believers, 2) Building a resume with experiences in studies of the Bible and service to the church, and 3) Presenting your best image to God.
