Saturday Workshops

Our workshops are designed to help equip men to further their journey with God. To grow personally, to prepare to serve others and to discover the PURPOSE for which we  were created.

The Importance of our Next Generation - 20 something year-olds (for High School Seniors to 29 year-olds)
Presenter: Richard Boas

Have you felt like you are wandering in a no-mans land? Are you wondering what God’s purpose is for you and your generation? Can you make a difference? What will the next stage of my life entail? In this workshop we will address these questions and more. Bring your questions, concerns and thoughts. You will help direct the conversation so it’s pertinent to you. You were made on PURPOSE for a PURPOSE and together we will help discover that purpose. (morning session only)

God's Game Plan for Young Men (for Junior High and Senior High age men up to 11th grade)
Presenters: Bob Lloyd and Ernest Vigal

We will discover how choosing God’s game plan over our own game plan will impact ourselves and others. We will explore this through discussion, fun activities and relationship building. This is a two part series. Part 1 is after the Saturday morning session and Part 2 is after the Saturday afternoon session.

Healthy Sex, part 2 
Presenter: Alick Lee Warner

Healthy sex in a marriage is based on “INTIMACY,” and intimacy is a byproduct of learning to be emotionally naked with our wives. To connect on “all levels“ is the desire our Maker put into us, going back to the Garden. To have emotional sex before physical sex results in the most successful experience of all. To be known, to be heard, to be free NOT to hide… Allows us to connect heart-to-heart, preparing us for a fulfilling sexual union. Women are triggered emotionally, primarily, and this is where we, as men, must develop our skills in this direction if we are to go to deeper levels of an intimate sexual experience.

God's Word living in you
Presenter: Ed McDowell

Do you want more of God in your life? One way to accomplish this is to have God's Word speak more into your life. This session is for every man. Take a practical look at how to bring God's Word to life in ways that will help you grow into the man God wants you to be.

Overcoming Spiritual Bondage - IMPACT PRAYER
Presenter: Mike Henry

Join Pastor Mike Henry for a session that will revitalize your prayer life. You will learn to get answers to prayer, overcome internal spiritual struggles, and impact your circles of influence; family, work, and community. You are more than a bystander in God’s active kingdom — make an impact! Pastor Mike Henry has been a missionary, pastor and spiritual director for over twenty five years. His insights into the spiritual life have activated individuals and churches in stronger faith and a richer prayer life in several countries.

Principles of Bible Study
Presenter: James Boemer

We will discuss how to dive into the Word for yourself, and enrich your relationship with God.  Ever wondered to dea with Old Testament books like Leviticus and how it applies today? Or, how to approach the Bible within appropriate context? Maybe you’ve read the Bible cover to cover and the prospect of reading Deuteronomy one more time makes you sleepy just thinking about it, and what you really want is to go deep into the Word, and not necessarily wide. If you can relate to any of these, this workshop session is for you!

Celebrate Recovery
Presenter: Bill Brown

The Bible clearly states "ALL HAVE SINNED." This means each of us needs RECOVERY in order to live our lives the way God intended. Celebrate Recovery is based on God's Word and is forward looking. It emphasizes personal responsibility and spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ, utilizes the biblical truth that we need each other in order to grow spiritually and emotionally, and addresses all types of hurts, hang-ups, and habits.

MAPA (Marysville Area Pastors ASsociation)
Presenter: Rick Thiessen

Marysville Pastors commit to cultivate our unity in two ways: 1) To regularly meet to Promote loving relationships for encouragement and prayer. 2) To partner together to tangibly Proclaim the Gospel through word and deed.

Discipleship that Works
Presenter: Shawn Schrader

If you were asked to disciple someone would you know what to say or do? Most Christian men in our region have not been discipled in a way that helps them to disciple others. This workshop will teach you some key principles from the Bible to help you as you seek to “Make Disciples” with the men God has put in your life.

Family Life - "Safeguard your marriage and reignite the romance"
Presenter: Roger Haskin

No one gets married expecting life to be miserable and lonely! However, if we’re not intentional that’s where we end up. Without regular maintenance, our marriage relationship will drift toward isolation. Learn some tips on how to keep your marriage safe and exciting. Family Life is a ministry of Cru that focuses on strengthening the family by sharing God’s blueprints for marriage and family. We provide transferable, biblically-based help for you at every stage of your marriage and family life.

Saturday Workshops



Following Jesus in the Second Half

Ward Tannenberg, Executive Director of CASA


Ward Tannenberg directs the Christian Association Serving Adult Ministries Network which seeks to inspire and equip the Church for ministry to and through adults in life’s second half. Ward passionately calls mid and post career adults to discover purpose not simply in accomplishment, but in passing on a legacy to the next generation.


Stewardship for the Long Haul

Darrell Weiland, Executive Director of the Warm Beach Camp Foundation


Darrell invests himself in helping others achieve their financial goals and leave a legacy of blessing to the next generation. Through biblical stewardship and responsible planning, you can reach your financial goals and leave a legacy of blessing.

Conflict is as old as the Garden of Eden. We need to be equipped to bring peace and live peaceably with others and thus, open the doors of grace for ourselves and others. Peacemaker Ministries provides principles and healthy practices that will help you not only resolve conflict but live peaceably with others.


Starting Early on Relational Success

Dr. Jeff McFarlane, Psychologist & Director of Restoration Counseling Services


Dr. McFarlane has been married for 32 years with 4 adult children. As a pastor and a psychologist, he has worked with couples and families to strengthen their relationships. The seeds for relational success are planted early in a person’s life and early in relationships. This workshop will look at key ingredients for healthy, successful relationships.

Dr. Jeff McFarlane is an ordained pastor and a licensed psychologist. He is the clinical director of Restoration Counseling Services. The counseling center is committed to helping individuals, couples, and families grow beyond their hurt and pain and discover hope, healing, and a new way to live.


Living Out the Implications of Our Faith in the Workplace

Christian Overman, Executive Director of Worldview Matters


While the U.S. unemployment rate is the highest in 25 years, over 50% of American workers say they are dissatisfied with the jobs they have. We have a workplace problem that no amount of economic stimulus can fix! In this session, we’ll explore the biblical “Theology of Work,” and view real life examples of how the Christian worldview can shape values, influence behavior, and create God-honoring culture in the workplace.



Spiritual Formation & the Man’s Journey

Dr. Jeff Johnson, Executive Director of Men’s Ministries International


International speaker and leader Jeff Johnson calls on men to connect their heads and hearts. Our lives are too easily compartmentalized and spiritual growth becomes a set of activities associated with church programs, Bible study, and small groups. However, to be effective men of God, Jeff believes men need to open up all areas of life to the heart-shaping work of God’s Holy Spirit. Discover how God shapes a man’s heart throughout life’s journey and how we can respond fully to God in all of life.


Rocks, Mirrors and Shoes - Leadership in Action

Colonel Tom Greco US Army (Ret)


Anyone who has influence on another is a leader.  The question in life is not whether or not to be a leader, but rather what kind of leader we want to be.  How do we respond to God’s shaping influences in life so that we may become godly leaders that influence other’s lives for the good? Explore the heart-shaping work of building leaders that God is doing everyday and how you can yield to His leadership in your life. Discover the Know, Be and Do of being a leader for God.


Forensic Examination of Firearms and other Magic

Brian Smelser, Firearms Examiner WSP Crime Lab


Is it really as easy as CSI makes it look? How do real crime scene investigations study operability and function testing, general rifling characteristics, distance determination, trajectories and reconstruction? Sorry, no firearms will actually be fired during the presentation. What does this have to do with Jesus? Come and see…
