For those who have completed EXPLORE A, you can continue your journey with these first three Explore B courses in one event. The event is also open to non-Explore guests.
EXPLORE B1 - The Family Business
God ordained the design of His family to be an oasis of security, strength and healing. Understanding the divine principles of God’s family is essential to understanding our place within our own family, our church and as well our broader Christian journey with one another.
The parents of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, were in great distress when they thought they’d lost Jesus aged 12 years. When they found Him in the temple He simply replied, ‘Did you not know I must be about my Father’s business?’
Since we have been ‘born-again’ into God’s family, then regardless of our background, skills or qualifications, we are destined to be a full and active member in His family – and also to play our part in His family business! But what does that really mean, and do we believe we have a part to play?
This course will uncover what it means to be in God’s family and how we can grow and flourish in that place of belonging and rest. It will look at what it means to share in His work, pray His family prayer and draw strength from the family for our everyday lives. We will consider what the hallmarks of being in the family business are and what we can offer in our service of Him. The course will also give an eternal perspective on this great privilege we have, will draw us closer to the heart of God, show us our place in God’s plan and inspire us to play our part in God’s Kingdom purposes.
EXPLORE B2 - Rewired
Do you ever feel that your life is full of crossed wires? Tangled thoughts and beliefs that have no grounding, but which feel so real, and therefore motivate and form our behaviour?
Many of us struggle to fully receive God’s truth into our hearts because it clashes with another ‘truth’ within us. We hear that God will take care of all of our needs, but because of an often subconscious and deeply hidden belief that we are on our own, we live a life believing that we have to provide for ourselves. Maybe our beliefs are more related to ourselves or to others and that impacts our ability to find deep and meaningful relationships.
This course will explore the ways in which our beliefs about God, others and ourselves are formed and how these beliefs, when out of sync with God’s truth, cause behaviour in our lives which is destructive. It will share God’s heart to ‘rewire’ our beliefs with His truth, and His desire to free us from the power of lies that we’ve believed and break us out of wrong behaviour cycles so that we can find freedom and new life in Him.
EXPLORE B3 - Deliver us from Evil
The feeling of being held back in our life, but not knowing by what, is seemingly very common. We live in a spiritual as well as physical world which constantly influences us, whether knowingly or unknowingly. Christians are not immune from falling into the hidden traps of the enemy, not least in the pursuit of spiritual well-being and healing. This course seeks to shed light on the subtle deceptions of the Evil One, and how our endeavours to find victory in healing or grow in our discipleship can be tripped up constantly.
We will explore the deceptive nature of the enemy and how he seeks to entrap us through various strategies. This may be previous false religious practices and covenants. We identify harmful alternative healing remedies and exercise regimes, exposing the root of spiritual dangers that will inflame a problem more than cure it. The course will bring vital teaching on the subject of discernment, signposting safe practices. It will also explain how God’s precious deliverance ministry can help believers. There will be teaching on God’s way of bringing cleansing to spiritually defiled ground, removing the grip of the enemy so you can be free to grow unhindered.
This course builds on the teaching of ‘God’s Enemy Exposed’ (an Explore A course) and it is therefore recommended that this course is attended prior to ‘Deliver us from Evil’.
