Specialized Topics

1. SEEDS OF GREATNESS: FROM GIFTING TO UPLIFTING The Seeds of Greatness presentation focuses on the power of spiritual gifts and talents in the life of a Christian believer. This workshop follows the structured lifecycle stages of a seed maturing into a tree, and illustrates how similarly God has given us gifts that require intentionality, refinement, and maturation, for us to impact the world around us. A seed is filled with the potential for exponential growth when placed in the right environment. As Christians, we must consider how are we developing our spiritual gifts and in what environments are our gifts being cultivated. With Colossians 3: 23 – 24 as the main scripture reference, this workshop will encourage all Christian believers to reflect on how they move from “gifting”, to “shifting” and ultimately “uplifting” The Kingdom of God through their talents.

2. TRANSIT10N: PROSPERING THROUGH CHANGE This presentation entitled “TRANSIT10N” highlights ten (10) life-changing lessons that I learned through anger, joy, long suffering, patience, laughter, confusion, expectation, exhaustion and many other emotions, as I waited on God to move in my life both personally and professionally. TRANSIT-10-N is a spin off the word TRANSITION, and the number 10 is inserted to illustrate the ten guiding principles that God equipped me with as I navigated monumental and unplanned for changes in my life. This presentation will encourage Christian believers to embrace change and “remain the course”, understanding that our God “works all things for our good” in the end (Romans 8: 26 – 30). Through this experience, God also led me to author my first book entitled “Cultivating An Agile Mind: R5ive Model”, which presents a 5-stage roadmap to help individuals achieve change agility and personal resilience.

3. CAREERS FOR CHRIST: KINGDOM INFLUENCE AT WORK Our Lord Jesus Christ has given us a commission to share the gospel with the whole world – and this too includes our places of employment. Research shows that as professionals we can spend up to one third of our lives at work. It means that we must reflect on how we are sharing and exemplifying in a very real way The Kingdom of God in the workplace. This presentation provides ten (10) power-packed principles to provide each Christian believer with a framework to be a more impactful steward in their careers. Referencing Matthew 5: 13 – 16, this workshop identifies the characteristics of being the “salt of the earth” and the “light of the world” and gives practical tips to live up to God’s expectation of Christ-like impact in the workplace.
