Introduction to Inspire

One of the best ways to get started with the Inspire vision is to organise a teaching retreat day at your church. Over the years, we have developed a very effective pattern, which can be seen below.

Each session is a combination of teaching, discussion, and quiet reflection.

Every participant receives a journal with all the details of the presentation, reflection exercises, and space for personal notes.

Introducing Inspire

Testimonies

“No matter how tired I have been going to these sessions I have always come away spiritually encouraged, refreshed and enthused to continue on in God’s mission wherever I am.”

“Thanks so much for the teaching sessions this year. I found them inspirational and I love the discussion format – it really engages those present, and we learn so much more than listening to a talk. It is one of the few places that ministers get “fed” and so is very valuable to us”

“I feel more confident in who I am as a Christian but also as a leader in Christian ministry.”

“Using this format (fellowship band), and the ideas from Inspire has been the most formative and indeed inspiring ‘thing’ for want of a better word, that I have been part of for years.”
