THE RESURGENT CHURCH

For the first time in centuries, the Church no longer has a primary place in the cultural dialogue. Christian leaders living off old assumptions are struggling, while missional churches are discovering new ways to reinvent themselves, arrest the general decline, and become catalysts for new strategies for reaching non-believers. These new voices are are following the lead of the early church, shifting their focus to a missional model. The Resurgent Church will help church leaders who are struggling to find and incorporate this new paradigm into their local church body.

Join Mike and Lori in Athens, Greece, or Richmond, Virginia for the Love Songs Conference! 

Love, marriage, and sexual intimacy are more than things artists sing about, poets write about, or actors portray. Love, marriage, and sexuality are beautiful gifts that God gave to his creation in the beginning of time. The world is full of endless ideas on how to improve our love life, our marriages, and add more spice to our sex life, but God gives us more than just ideas, he gives us a plan. Mike and Lori want to help you move beyond the surface of new-found love and dive into the depths of life-long love —love that soothes and satisfies, blossoms and multiplies, gives and receives, and reveals to us the divine design of what God intends for love, marriage, and sexuality.

TOPICS

• ATTRACTION
What draws you to your spouse may not be what keeps you with your spouse. Attraction doesn’t have to fade or die. Attraction can flourish to depths and dimensions most have never known.
• NURTURING
Intentionally fostering and protecting your love relationship may be the most important role each person plays. Become aware of the “little foxes” that can creep in and destroy a marriage. Identify your vulnerability and nurture love as you protect love.
• AFFECTION
Let’s reclaim and redeem sexuality. The first commandment God gave humanity was to come together sexually (Genesis 1:28). Spice up the foreplay, enjoy the embrace and make love.
• RESTORATION
Conflict is an unavoidable reality in every marriage. Ending, resolving, and becoming better is the win in any conflict. Let’s learn how to have a “good fight.”
• SATISFACTION
Anyone can experience a burgeoning “infatuation” kind of love, but can you share a fulfilling and flourishing love well into the years and decades?
