Fueling Your Journey with Melissa Hoover

This intensive is designed to help busy women balancing the demands of church planting explore the importance of fueling their bodies well through balanced nutrition as a form of self-care, while also weeding through confusing information and removing the stigma society often places on foods and eating habits.

Learning Objectives
  • Explore eating and lifestyle habits that best fit YOUR schedule (or family rhythm).
  • Learn how nutrients support the work that your body does in every day activities and during exercise (i.e. metabolism and meal timing).
  • Learn how mindful eating principles can free you from dieting “rules” and help heal your relationship with food (if needed).
  • Learn how to set realistic health goals and achieve success.
  • Learn how to properly recognize, understand, and respond to hunger and fullness for balanced energy intake.
  • Learn simple, practical nutrition tips that will ensure you are maximizing self-care in the midst of a busy life.

The intensive events are non-refundable. 

Preaching 101

Starting April 17

This intensive is designed to help women take an intentional step toward becoming a clear, confident, Christ-centered, Spirit-led communicator of the Gospel.

This three-week online course will help you to learn how to prepare for a sermon with content (Scripture), context, and prayer (Holy Spirit), basic sermon structure – how to hit the bullseye, not just the target, and tips and tricks for delivering your finished sermon.

Before the beginning of the course you will need to journal your own story answering these questions:

  • What barriers do I have to communicating more regularly in my context (internal or external)?
  • Do I think God is calling me to preach? What from my story informs or confirms this calling?
  • What excites me about preaching and teaching? What scares me?

The intensive events are non-refundable.
