Equipping Others to Change the World Like Jesus

At our next PALCO day together, Thursday, August 28th, you will leave equipped to help those in your ministry to change the world like Jesus did. Not joking. This training experience will be something you—PALC alumni—can take back to your ministries and do in a five session series this fall!
1. Save the date: Thursday, August 28th.
2. Read the description below.
3. Use the FREE download below to start this conversation with those you will want to train and equip this fall.
God wants to use YOU and your friends to make a difference in your world.

But where do you start?

You start right where you are.

In Cadre's Evangelism Is Relationships training experience, you will learn to live a biblical process for impacting your world like Jesus.

Session 1 iNTERCEDE 
Love the Lord. Making a difference in your world requires the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, you must learn to connect with the heart of God via prayer for those He has placed in your relational sphere of influence.

Session 2 iNVEST
Be a Friend. The natural result of connecting with God's heart is a desire to love people with God's love. We will explore how Jesus intentionally befriended those in his relational sphere of influence—and how we can follow His example.

Session 3 iNTERSECT
Truth and Grace. We'll explore how Jesus brought God's truth and grace to people in His relational sphere of influence. Then, taking our cues from Jesus, we'll explore how to bring God's truth and grace to those in our relational sphere of influence.

Session 4 iNVITE
Share God's Story. God uses ordinary people like you and me to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. We'll explore how to clearly share God's story, our own God story, and how invite others into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
    To get a feel for this training experience, you can download a FREE two page PDF here.

    Each person gets a 28-page training manual AND a 25 day follow-through John 3:16  Factor Living Guide that is good for personal use and great for small group use. 

    NOTE: If you are interested in hosting this PALCO on Thursday, August 28th, please contact Bill.

    Interesting PALC Trend...

    Over the last few years, I've noticed a little trend in our Disciplemaking Learrning Community known as the Peoria Area Leadership Community.

    The trend is this: Guys who've been through the initial first year of PALC (which is so foundational) are asking to return for another first year AND bringing a friend or two with them.

    Turns out, Barney IS right. Everything IS better with a friend.

    I've noticed that the guys who redo the first year of PALC with friends from their lives and ministries have a significantly deeper disciplemaking experience. It seems to move them from the idea level ("these are cool ideas to ponder") to the conviction level ("let's live this way together and change the world like Jesus did").

    As you know, we're seeking God for the next PALC group that will start this Fall. God has been lining up some of these folks for months—like he does every year. (It's fun to watch God do this—and recognize it.)

    If this is something you'd like to revisit with a friend or two from you life and ministry, let me know ASAP.

    No pressure. Always an invitation.

    Let Cadre's Dave and Rennie Garda encourage and equip you... to encourage and equip others!
    You are invited to join Cadre for...
    Friday and Saturday, February 21-22, 2014
    Peoria Christian School in Peoria, IL.

    Dave and Rennie Garda will be doing these four training lab experiences on both Friday and Saturday...

    Kavanah: A Missing Disciplemaking Concept
    Dave and Rennie Garda, www.cadreministries.com
    Included in this workshop will be a first-century rabbi's disciplemaking glossary and the practical insights needed for God dependent ministry. We'll use youth ministry as an example, but the principles shared will be valued by those who work with families (even our own), children, youth, men and women. We'll explore the first-century teaching and training style of disciplemaking teachers and explore ways to bring these values into our ministries and families.

    Why Youth Ministries Fail... and Is Yours Next?
    Dave and Rennie Garda, www.cadreministries.com
    Encouragement on how to thrive and not just survive the adventure of being a youth worker in 2013. For all volunteer and paid youth leaders.

    Pop Goes the Christian! What Makes You Spiritually POP?
    Dave and Rennie Garda, www.cadreministries.com
    What is the simplest effective environment for "popping" disciples? Why do some disciples find their way into ministry roles while other believers seem satisfied to pew sit? What are your missing ingredients in your disciplemaking journey? This workshop will be shared in what Cadre Ministries calls a Disciplemaking Learning Community context. We trust that you'll learn as much from how this workshop is shared as you will from the teaching lessons we'll engage.

    For Those Who Are CRAZY About Middle School Ministry
    Dave and Rennie Garda, www.cadreministries.com
    We'd like to experience a community time of sharing the adventures and insights of the unique challenges of Middle School Ministry (Grades 5-6 and 7-8). We'll share key insights and some free tools to help you, but we want to hear your heart and questions for middle school ministry as well. So call this a 50/50 workshop... 50% planned equipping and encouragement and 50% hearing and learning from one another. Let's come together to learn more about how to engage with the BATTERIES INCLUDED GENERATION.
