Created to Dream Master Class

Starts October 14, 2023.  8:30 AM – 10:00 AM PDT.   Five Weeks Via Zoom

If you’re a believer, God will work throughout your life to grow your faith. In fact, there’s a six-phase process of faith—a dream, decision, delay, difficulty, dead end, and deliverance—that God will take you through again and again to develop your character and help you fulfill the dream he has given you.

The Bible is full of stories of people whose God-given dreams became reality–but not without first going through the six phases of faith. In Created to Dream, Pastor Rick via video presentations will help you understand how God uses these phases to grow people to spiritual maturity while fulfilling the dreams he gives them. Each phase is a test of your faith and we will discuss each phase together.

The process God uses to grow your faith:

  • Session 1: Dream: Discovering God’s Dream For You
  • Session 2: Decision–Making Wise Decisions.
  • Session 3: Delays–Persisting Through Delays
  • Session 4: Difficulties–Dealing with Difficulties
  • Session 5: From Dead End to Deliverance

Knowing these biblical six phases of faith will allow you to stop wondering, “Why is this happening to me?” and begin cooperating with God’s process of growing you and your faith. You’ll find yourself thinking, “So that’s why that happened!” and you’ll be prepared for all that God has dreamed up for your future.

Personal Growth and Leadership Development Mastermind Groups

The term “mastermind group” may be unfamiliar to many of us, however, it is often one of the most powerful tools we can use to take our personal development to the next level.

Napoleon Hill first introduced the term in the 1920s and went on to expand the definition a decade later in his book Think and Grow Rich. He described the principles of the group as, “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose… No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.” Simply put, two minds are better than one.

In the best mastermind groups, people come together with like-minded goals and values to offer and obtain feedback, discuss personal and professional experiences, and to have a safe place to tackle issues and problems that they contend with. The experience of being a part of a group like this inspires us to grow leaps and bounds.

Everyone Communicates, Few Connect

“Only One Thing Stands Between You and Success. It Isn’t Experience. It Isn’t Talent.”

World-renowned leadership expert John C. Maxwell says if you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some folks are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. In Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, Maxwell shares the Five Principles and Five Practices to develop the crucial skill of connecting, to include:

  • Finding Common Ground
  • Keeping Your Communication Simple
  • Capturing People’s Interest
  • Inspiring People
  • Staying Authentic in all Your Relationships

Connecting goes beyond words. In fact, more than 90% of the impression that we often convey has nothing to do with what we actually say! When thought, emotion, and action are congruent, connecting goes beyond what we say because we are now expressing what people can feel, and we are connecting with them more than just verbally.  “If you want to succeed, talent isn’t enough, education isn’t enough, the experience isn’t enough…. only one thing stands between you and your full potential and that is the ability to connect!” -John Maxwell

The ability to connect with others is a major determining factor in reaching your full potential. It’s no secret! Connecting is a skill you can learn and apply in your personal, professional, and family relationships- and you can start now by taking this course!
