Follow the Lamb in the Family

Doing courtship God’s way

Kasper and Freja Struksnes

The decision of marriage is surely one of the most important decisions in life with 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, questions to ask yourself concerning your potential spouse as well as 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 desires to share the principles they have found in their studies 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 different conflict participants with all their positive and negative 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). Practicing and learning all that is one of the best, the most serious and most important tasks, since we are living in the end time, the time of the most challenges. A good ‘Conflict Management’ is definitely the right tool to have today.

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.

Biblical Principles of Sexuality

Jason and Maggi Harral

Married for 14 years, Jason & Maggi know a few things about sex, but not much about porn. They’ve experienced that applying Biblical principles to this part of life can bring such blessing. For part of this workshop men and women will be in separate groups. It is recommended that only those who are married, soon to be married or 20 or older attend this workshop.

Jason runs a floor sanding business and Maggi is an occasional teacher and permanent mom. With four lively kids they have plenty to do and like to learn and teach about how Bible principles can be brought into business and everyday life.

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

Everyday witnessing simplified

Covenantal Revelation: The Six Angels of Chapter 14 and the Davidic Covenant

Joachim Fosse

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 fulfilment. As important as it is to discern the historical fulfilment of prophecy so too is appreciating 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.”. Among us, not all will see it, but I hope you and I will.

Joachim Fosse is an engaging young speaker who has given a number of lectures at home and abroad, which have been an inspiration to many. Formerly a student at Matteson Mission School and Newbold College he now works as a pastor in Lillehammer Adventist Church.

Follow your advocate

Christopher Kramp

We will look at present truth. Jesus’ Ministry in the Most Holy Place since 1844 ist 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 make plain, how this message is central to our faith and mission in this very moment of time. Basic Adventism seen from new angles and with fresh perspectives. #makeadventismbrightagain

The Three (or Four) Angels’ Simple Complexity

Kenneth Jørgensenp

In this workshop we will discuss questions like these:
1. Are the Three Angels’ Messages relevant in the 21th century?
2. What can we do to share them with the world?
3. How shall we present the Three Angels’ Messages to the world?
4. Do we have to believe the Three Angels’ Messages to be Seventh-day Adventists?
5. What interpretation of 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.

Kenneth Jørgensen is from Norway and after completing a degree in Theology at Newbold College he worked ten years for the Adventist church as pastor in different lines. He was ordained for the ministry in 1991. Currently he is employed by a supporting (to the church) ministry called “Bevar SDA” (translated “Preserve SDA”).

Happy Hand experiences

I will share how I use conversation and prayer as a way of evangelising, in a very easy and natural way.
