GRACE WEEK: Intensive Training in Spiritual Renewal
GRACE WEEK will present Serge’s Sonship curriculum in a one week, retreat format. Through main teaching sessions, personal reflection, discussion groups, and time spent with a personal mentor you will learn to apply the gospel to the broken, sinful corners of your own heart, just as you have been taking the gospel to our broken world. Most participants say meeting with a spiritual mentor was the most helpful part of the week.

- Living Like an Orphan or Child of God? All too often we lose sight of the fact that God is our Loving, Heavenly Father and that it’s his deep, never ending love for us that enables us to love others.
- The Power of Christ’s Righteousness It is Christ’s work on the cross that defines us and makes us loved by God. No our efforts. Not our performance. Not our ministry.
- Growing by Grace Christ’s work doesn’t just define us, it also provides the power for our Christian growth. The same gospel that saves you, sanctifies you.
- Understanding Christian Maturity In order for us to grow to become more like Christ we need to both see our sin more clearly and see how Christ meets our need through his work on the cross.
- Grace and Obedience If God already loves us because of what Christ has done, what does this mean for how how pursue obedience to his commands?
- The Joy of Repentance When we understand that all of our sins have been completely paid for, repentance becomes a lifestyle that leads us back to the joy of intimacy with Jesus.
- Spiritual Intimacy Ever feel like your prayers bounce off the ceiling, or that reading the Bible feels like a chore and doesn’t help much? Learning to talk to God and hear his promises by faith changes everything.
- Redeeming Conflict Everybody has conflict. Understanding how the gospel reveals our own sin in our conflicts and live out of Christ righteousness transforms conflict from a fight to an opportunity for grace to grow deeper in our lives.
- Real Forgiveness Forgiving others is one of he hardest things we are ever called to do. It also reveals just how much we need God’s grace in our lives to forgive our sins if we are ever going to be able to forgive others for the ways they’ve sinned against us.
- Renewing Mission Experiencing God’s love for you anew, each day, is the foundation for a healthy and growing ministry. The struggles of ministry–when we learn to see them through the lens of grace–push us back to our need for Jesus.

Testimonials and Endorsements:
Gina and I attended a Sonship Week in St. Louis, MO early in our marriage. It is no exaggeration to say that the material was life-changing for us. It helped our marriage, our parenting, and the way we approach ministry. We are big sinners who need the Gospel every day (present tense=intentional). Before we can take the Gospel to the unbelieving corners of the world, we need to learn to take the Gospel to the unbelieving corners of our own heart! We both are very excited to be able to attend this conference in February.

When I first took “Sonship” discipleship course about 15 years ago, I thought I had a good understanding of the Bible and a decent faith walk with the Lord. The Lord used “Sonship” to change my entire way of thinking and learning, as I began to more clearly and in a much deeper way, to understand some of my heart issues and how I wasn’t living out my faith daily in my home with my husband, children, those around me and in public. Beginning to learn all this has laid a foundation in my personal life and ministry.
