Restoring True Humanity Workshop 2018

Restoring True Humanity Workshop - Dr Ed Welch with Peter Sondergeld

The Restoring True Humanity workshops are for anyone who has a heart to see people transformed and restored by Jesus. From pastors, to ministry leaders, to small group leaders and everyday Christians – Jesus calls us to join Him in His restoring work.

·       Do you want to be more effective in helping others?

·       How does Jesus change people?

·       What does a restored person look like?

·       What are we even aiming for?

Join Dr Ed Welch and Peter Sondergeld as they bring biblical clarity to the way you understand people, the dehumanising effects of sin, and how you can partner with Jesus in the restoration of humanity.

Along with rich and practical teaching, Restore Ministries will present two tried and proven group biblical counselling courses, which provide a context for Jesus’ work of restoration in the local church, showing how the workshop content can (and does) operate on the ground.

Session 1 Ed Welch                        Humanity Rising – the original blueprint

Session 2 Ed Welch                        Humanity Falling – the dehumanising effects of sin

Session 3 Peter Sondergeld         Power and Dignity – how to build it without blowing it

Session 4 Ed Welch                        Humanity Lifted – how to join with God in His work
