Session 1 Building the Kingdom of God
It all begins with the Glory of God
The beginning and the end of The Purpose Driven Life is the glory of God made manifest through his Kingdom. It’s not about us, it’s all about God: "The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever", says the Westminster Confession of Faith. From the Lord’s Prayer we learn that he is building his kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven.”
Session 2 Developing a Christ-like heart
Letting your heart be broken
God uses the person with a Chris- like heart. What Jesus loves, I must love. My heart must be broken by those things that break the heart of God. God loves the lost and the troubled.
Session 3 Making Disciplines
Our task is to make disciples not mere converts
The task of the church is to make disciples, not just increase attendance. We learn that the Bible teaches us that there are five purposes that we discover from two passages of scripture, ‘The Great Commission’ and ‘The great Commandment’. A healthy disciple obeys and keeps all five purposes in balance. These are the “commands” of Christ.
Session 4 Growing Healthy Churches
The process of making disciples
Effective disciples are developed by healthy churches. The church is a disciple-making factory. Evangelism that leads to the creator is a good first step, but it falls short of what God wants us to accomplish. To make mature disciples we have to first know what one looks like. A disciple is one who makes a difference in the world around him. A church with a clear purpose and an intentional plan to take believers through a series of steps to full maturity in Christ will be the church that impacts its world.
Session 5 Reaching the World for Christ
Doing what Jesus did
Healthy churches reach the world for Christ. Balanced believers, living life on purpose, will do what Jesus did. Our international model for being “on mission for God” is called The P.E.A.C.E. Plan. This Plan addresses the global giants of hunger, disease and ignorance, as well as the development of servant leaders, new ministries and churches all around the world.
Session 6 Being God's leader for God's glory
Being the person God uses
Servant-hearted leaders obey for his glory. The Purpose Driven Journey not only begins with the glory of God, but it ends there as well. God is glorified when I live my life according to his purposes and teach others to do the same. When I understand and adopt God’s purposes for my life, it gives me a reason to live, people to partner with, a meaningful job to do, and vision for the future.
Our normal day's agenda is:
09:30 Welcome and tea/coffee
10:00 Session 1
11:45 Session 2
13:15 Question time
We keep the day short so that leaders will be able to travel back to their churches or spend time talking to members of the Purpose Driven Team.
We will have some resources for sale and will promote the Purpose Driven Campaigns and the new Leader's handbook.

What they are saying about it:
"I had devoured Rick Warren’s 'The Church, a Passion, a Vision'. After having followed the first session, I warmly recommend this training to every pastor wanting to make his church accessible to unbelievers and to transform the believers into true disciples of Jesus Christ.”
Jean-Rene Bmandet, Pastor at Besanzon
"Three days after the first training session, I put a principle into practice at the time of an Alpha course. Four people responded to the appeal for conversion".
Eric Bourniquey, Elder at Blotzheim
"This conference is not the ultimate method to tell us how to act so that our church grows. No, the point is to understand the obstacles which, consciously or unconsciously, we place between God and His work.”
Rene Yoder, Pastor at Luxeuil.
