Spend 2 days nestled in the hills of Makawao, with John Mark, Jon and the Bethke’s and 45 other amazing people, as we unpack homiletics, sermon crafting, best practices for study and research, emotional and spiritual dynamics and so on. We will share meals and maybe even schedule in a surf break during the day, with some fish tacos after, because why not? Of course, only after we do the hard work of becoming better teachers and preachers! This workshop is for those who want to go deeper and farther in their craft, and be surrounded by like minded leaders, as we work through interactive content to do just that.
That’s where these two days come in. We will pull back the curtain and give you everything we’ve got. Sharing everything from technical sermon crafting to showing how to teach not just for information, but spiritual formation.
You can do this. We can do this. See you soon!
Because of the nature and intimate ‘mastermind’ like quality of this event, we are capping the group at 45 total people for the first year.
WHEN: June 29-30, 2023
WHERE: Makawao, HI
The workshop will be hosted at the Bethke’s 2 acre farm, which is nestled at 3,000 elevation on Maui, HI. The area is only 15 minutes from the great north shore beaches, as well as Paia and Haiku and Makawao, some awesome quaint Maui towns.
To educate: so much of teaching and preaching is learning, studying, listening and understanding. It’s a complex process with so many moving parts, with it also being enormously important as we are people who are shaped by what we hear and listen to. This workshop will demystify the process with tips from some world class teachers, teaching you about the craft and pulling back the curtain entirely on the process.
To create space: John Mark, Jon and Jeff have written handful of books, taught on stages across the world, preached thousands of messages, and so on. In doing so we can tell you there is absolutely nothing like carving out time and space to get together and get better at the craft. You can say you will grow in your teaching and preaching, but we all need those catalytic moments that provide energy and vision and sharpening for the entirety of our ministry. And this weekend is that–a space and spark, that hopefully changes the trajectory of your teaching to spur you on towards more compelling and transformative preaching and teaching.
To not do it alone: We have participated in, and also led, many mastermind style smaller intimate small groups of creatives and leaders. It is by far one of the most invaluable experiences to so many projects and ideas with the connections and growth that happens at these smaller ‘sleeves rolled up’ type events. To have other smart people, pursuing the same thing, and hear your particular struggle and help you with it in real time, it can change everything! And that’s why we are capping this group at 45 people, to protect and make sure we cultivate that exact space to sharpen and grow each other.
It’s a scenic drive upcountry Maui, about 30 minutes from the airport, in Makawao. We will send out the address and directions as it gets closer!
