Doing courtship God’s way
Kasper and Freja Struksnes
The decision of marriage is surely one of the most important decisions in life and carries huge, even eternal, consequences. But how do you find out if God wants you to marry a person or not? What are you to look for in a future spouse? And in this period of consideration, how are you to relate to the other person? In this workshop, both Biblical principles as well as personal experiences will be shared. We will explore the purpose and motivation for marriage, the questions to ask yourself concerning your potential spouse, Bible guidelines on physical contact before marriage and more.
Kasper and Freja Struksnes have been married since August this year. Living in their little home in Odense (Denmark), Freja is studying nursing, and Kasper is studying medicine. They are very grateful to God for His guidance in their journey towards marriage and desire to share the principles they have found in their study of the topic, as well as lessons from their own experience.
Conflict management in the family
Terri and Ernst Zwiker
“Don’t miss the blessing of a good conflict!” This is a very true statement that we want to clarify and understand. We should be interested in analysing conflicts and understanding what they are all about. We will talk about the individual participants in a conflict with their respective challenges. These challenges come mostly from inside: from our values, principles, fears and expectations. Once we understand ourselves better (self-competence), we will much better communicate our wishes and limits to our environment (social competence). Because we are living in the end time, the most challenging time in history, learning and practicing these principles is one of the most serious and important tasks we will meet. Good conflict management is definitely a useful tool to have!
Terri and Ernst Zwiker have been married since 1980. Even though they come from different cultures (USA/CH) and totally different family backgrounds, with God’s help they have worked through these challenges well enough to become a blessing to each other, their three children (Jenny, Jesse, Jeremy) and others. Because it is their common burden, they write a blog to support the most important relationship model we have in our society: the family.

Bringing up children in the faith
Daniel & Silvia Pel
Many influences in our world today are counteracting the Biblical worldview which makes it a particular challenge for children to grow up in our time and age. How can we as parents instill faith in our children from the earliest moments of childhood? Discover how you can work together as a family team and stimulate a love for service and mission in your little ones.

Follow the Lamb in Daily Life
Know the Lamb’s voice in your daily devotionals*
To follow the Lamb you need to know His voice. “The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out” (John 10:3).
We will talk about how to know His voice in our daily devotionals, how to study and how to listen. We will get the foundation from the Bible: This is what Jesus wants to happen in our time with Him. You will get practical ideas about what you can do at home in your daily time with Jesus.

Medical missionary work made practical in the context of the Third Angel’s message
Alexander Rose Jensen
The Third Angel’s message is the final message of warning that will be given to the world. We are told that medical missionary work is the right arm of the gospel, which will open the door for this message to be received. We also know that the Third Angel’s message is righteousness by faith in verity. In this workshop you will discover the Biblical basis for how medical missionary work, righteousness by faith and the Third Angel’s message are inseparably linked. We will explore what God will do in His people in order for these truths to swell into the loud cry, and what you must do to be a part of it.

Covenantal revelation: The six angels of chapter 14 and the Davidic covenant
God has always had a covenantal relationship with his people, throughout the ages, and in the present. The book of Revelation reciprocates with these promises given and expands upon their fulfillment. As important as it is to discern the historical fulfillment of prophecy, it is just as important to appreciate the movements in God’s plan and purpose and our role within that purpose. As the prophet said: “When we, as a people, understand what this book means for us, there will be seen among us a great revival.” Not all among us will see it, but I hope you and I will.

Follow your advocate
We will look at present truth. Jesus’ Ministry in the Most Holy Place since 1844 is far more than just a peculiar theological notion that causes tensions among scholars. Looking at the development of this understanding among our pioneers, we will seek to show the importance of this message and its relevance to our faith and mission at this particular moment in earth’s history.

The Three (or Four) Angels’ simple complexity
In this workshop we will discuss questions like these:
Are the Three Angels’ messages relevant in the 21th century?
What can we do to share them with the world?
How shall we present the Three Angels’ messages to the world?
Do we have to believe the Three Angels’ messages to
be Seventh-day Adventists?
What interpretation of the Three Angels’ messages
can we trust?
There will, throughout the sessions, be paid special attention to the textual interpretive comprehensiveness of the Three Angels’ messages. The workshop will hopefully help the participant to see the exceptional magnitude the messages of Revelation 14 and 18 have in relation to ASI.

We will also look at some practical skills to learn in order to be among those who will survive the crisis. How to be perfectly united to Christ? How to get rid of our old sinful nature? How to get the power of the cross? How to survive physically when we cannot buy or sell? These are questions we will endeavour to answer from the Bible.

This workshop will guide you through the labyrinth of market research and understanding today’s society.
