Pre-Conference | Feelings and Faith

Emotions are a vital part of what it means to be a human being made in the image of God and redeemed in Jesus Christ. But often our emotions confuse and mislead us. So what is the proper place for emotions in a Christian’s walk of faith?

From his book, Feelings and Faith, Brian Borgman draws from his extensive biblical knowledge and his pastoral experience to help readers understand both divine and human emotions. After laying a biblical foundation he moves on to practical application, focusing on how Christians can put to death ungodly emotional displays and also cultivate godly emotions.

These biblically informed, practical talks will be helpful for pastors, counselors, and serious-minded Christians who wish to develop a full-orbed faith that encompasses their emotional life.

Friendship

Friendship: A Lost Theology for One-Another Care

Cornerstone Fellowship Bible Church – Riverside, CA
June 25-27, 2020

Join us for the 2020 IBCD Training Institute, where we will seek to recover a theology of friendship in all the richness these relationships deserve.

In the church, we can sometimes focus so heavily on marriage and family that an imbalance is created. Singles often struggle for community, and those who experience difficult relationships with spouses, parents, and siblings can feel isolated. An overemphasis on the biological family eclipses the truth that God does not mean for loneliness and connection to be answered through marriage alone, but also in close friendships.

Scripture talks about friends who “love at all times” (Prov 17:17) and the help of “a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” (Prov 18:24) “Jesus wept” over the death of his friend, Lazarus (John 11:11, 35). He describes his disciples, those he invested in and depended on; as friends (John 15:15). We see how “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

Churches looking to better foster a culture of one-another care must cherish and invest in real friendships. They are critical for the kind of long-term counseling that everyone should be engaged in as part of close relationship (Prov 27:6-10).

Worthy Workshop Track

Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women

4-Session Workshop Track – June 25-27, 2020
Based on the new book

We all bring presuppositions into the counseling room. If a counselor believes that women are by nature inferior, more easily deceived than men, power hungry, or naturally resistant to leadership, that will shape how he or she hears and speaks. Understanding that women, like men, are both sinful, as well as created in God’s image and valuable to the kingdom of God, will go a long way to help our counseling mirror the interactions that Jesus and Paul had with women.

Bestselling author Elyse Fitzpatrick and pastor Eric Schumacher together invite us to embrace a transformative and empowering view of God, women, and the church. But these workshops are not only for women. They are also for men, especially leaders, who want to grow in their understanding of God’s perspective on women, people who normally make up the majority of their congregations; men who might be wondering if they’ve missed something amid the abuse scandals that are rocking the church.

By walking through what the Bible says about women, these four workshops will help us see the value, place, and calling of women. Learn more about the book here.
