"Genesis Part I: Where It All Began"
(Chapters 1 - 25)
The Hebrew Scriptures come to life as we dive into the timelines and interconnectedness of stories so familiar. We explore historical, political, and geographical context, starting with the Patriarchs, followed by the Exodus and the establishment of Israel. We'll examine what role Judges played, why a Monarchy arose, and why a completely new office needed to arise: the prophets. We then look at a reverse Exodus, called the exile. Through it all is this remarkable thread of God's enduring love and covenant with His people.

"Acts of the Apostles:
Seeing the Holy Spirit in Action"
After the resurrection and ascension, the followers of Christ Jesus found themselves wondering what to do next, and then it happened: the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Acts tells how men and women were transformed by this singular event.
This talk will share the historical, geographical, political and religious background to provide greater insight that can guide each of our Christian journeys today. The goal is to pull forward the lessons those early Church workers learned in the power of the Holy Spirit and the courage it provides to share with others the transforming message of Christ Jesus.

This course is for you if you’re interested in ramping up your leadership skills that are grounded in biblical principles that have proven timeless and true.
As someone who spent over 20 years helping companies with their leadership development, and as someone who has loved and studied the Bible most of my life, I’m happy to bring you this course on Biblical Leadership.
