    Main Session @ 9–9:25 AM

    STRETCH - Training Camp will open with a main session led by Lead Pastor Ben Cachiaras. In light of Mountain’s current vision “Dare to Dream,” Ben will dig into the “stretch” aspect of our “stretch, strengthen, and spread” strategy, sharing the hopes we have and the efforts we are taking to embrace our missional identity and reach those far from God amidst an ever-changing cultural landscape.

    Breakout Session #1 @ 9:40–10:40 AM

    OUTREACH
    Across the Street and Around the World
    More than ever, God is bringing people from other countries and cultures into our neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools. Let’s take a look together at some opportunities to start building meaningful relationships with them. Whether across the street or around the world we will examine God’s calling on us to live with expectancy as people come to us and we go to people from other faiths, cultures, and world views.


    Initiating Spiritual Conversations
    Ever want to talk about spiritual things with your friends or family, but aren’t sure how? How can we have meaningful spiritual conversations with others without seeming pushy or weird? Gather some perspective and practical steps that will ease your anxiety about sharing your faith and lead you to engage in fruitful conversations that lovingly and graciously bump everyone a little closer to Jesus.

    Local Disasters and Mountain’s Role in the Community (Part 1 of 2)
    Learn how Mountain positions itself to meet the needs of the community in the event of a local disaster through its cooperative partnership with Harford County Department of Emergency Services.

Also learn about the Disaster Assistance Team (DAT), a ministry at Mountain which serves as a key liaison upon such an event. 

    Love Everybody- Start with the Ones that Creep You Out

    KIDS/STUDENTS
    How to Read the Bible for All It’s Worth-Kids Edition
    (1st-5th)
    The Bible is an amazing book! It’s meant to be read and understood by everyone, including kids. This class will help kids understand how to navigate through God’s BIG Story and apply it to their lives, while having fun! Bibles will be available, but Kids are encouraged to bring their own with them for the class.

    It’s Just a Phase: Parenting through the Middle
    Ever wonder what’s going on in the mind of a middle schooler? Ages 11, 12, 13 are the awkward years. You remember right? Greasy hair, frizzy hair, don’t care. Weight gain and weight loss. You feel like an adult but everyone treats you like a kid. Life for a middle schooler is rough. Forget trying to figure out who you are in Christ. Preteens are hanging onto the struggle bus for dear life. This class will use material developed by the Rethink Group to help us all get a better grasp on what’s really happening during these awkward years.


    GROUPS
    The Seven Rhythms

    Discover and learn to incorporate seven foundational rhythms that are essential to the spiritual growth of any group. Practiced by the church for centuries, these rhythms bring transformation, stronger relational bonds within your group, and a healthier individual relationship with Christ. 

    New Group Leader Orientation (Part 1 of 2)
    One of the requirements for group leadership is to attend the New Group Leader Orientation. Whether you've lead groups in the past, fill in for your current leader periodically, are a new leader or apprentice, you will find the orientation to be very beneficial. One important aspect of a leader is that he/she is a LEARNER, someone who is teachable, always growing, and always on the lookout for ways to grow in wisdom and skill. This orientation will provide some important tools to your leadership toolbox. This is part 1 of a two-part orientation. Participants are expected to attend both Part 1 and Part 2.

    Rooted Facilitator Training 
    Are you facilitating an upcoming Rooted discipleship experience? Make sure you come to this class! We'll give you all the tips and tricks of how to lead your group well. We'll also talk through the prayer experience, serve experience, the strongholds week, and have some resources for you as well. This class is mandatory for those who plan to lead a ROOTED group.


    PASTORAL CARE
    Mental Health & The Church

    Explore the role of the church body supporting and encouraging those struggling with mental and emotional health.


    WELCOME
    The Heart of Hospitality

    Hospitality is at the heart of the gospel. An understanding of its deeper meaning will position each of us to change the world even through a single meal. In this session, explore what Biblical hospitality means and the impact it can have on your heart, home, church, and the world around you.  

    Safety Response Team Training: Team Member Orientation 
    This class is only for current/pending Safety Response Team (SRT) members. SRT members will learn protocols for responding safely to emergencies within the context of the church environment. Teaching will focus on communicating with people in distress and will include practical tips on being an "active listener."


    MOUNTAIN WALK
    What Am I Here For? Discovering God's Purpose For Your Life

    We’re walking with Jesus and by faith have made Him our Lord and Savior. We know what we’ve been saved “from,” but do we know what have we been saved “for”? What are we here for? Why were we born? Learn God’s purposes for creation, for humans, and for the church. Discover your ultimate divine purpose in light of Jesus’ life and ministry and explore next steps to living into your God-ordained calling. 

    Sacred Pathways
    Sacred Pathways unfolds nine distinct spiritual temperaments—their traits, strengths, and pitfalls—to help you eliminate the barriers that keep you locked into rigid methods of worship and praise. Also, discover other temperaments that are not necessarily "you" but that you may wish to explore the way they can stretch and invigorate your spiritual life. Sacred Pathways will show you the route you were made to travel, marked by growth and filled with the riches of a close walk with God.

    Journeys With Paul - Three Mission Trips to Spread God’s Blessing
    Learn from Acts chapters 13-21 how Paul stretched his faith, heart, and hands by spreading God’s blessing during his three mission trips. For ten years and thousands of miles, Paul stretched his faith upwards to listen to God’s direction, and stretched his heart and hands outwards to his teammates and to those far from God.


    Cultivating Your Desire for God
    Loving God is the essence of the greatest commandment. Yet our affections and self-interests often lead us away from reciprocating that love. How can we direct our wants and affections toward genuine desire for our Savior? Explore the perspective, beliefs, and practices that will help you cultivate your desire for God. 



    LEADERSHIP
    Church of the Future
    With the percentage of people that will walk through the door of a church getting smaller, the church at large is at a crossroads in its strategies and efforts to make disciples of people who aren’t disciples. Despite the changes, God still desperately wants to connect with every person of every generation. How will we foster that connection? How does the way we do things need to change in order to reach the people Jesus misses the most? Essentially, what will the church of the future need to look like? Explore how Mountain is embracing its missional identity amidst the cultural realities to truly help people hear and receive the Good News and find their place in God’s Story.

    GLS - Rewind: The Difficult Work of Pushing a Vision Forward
    Engage in group discussion with fellow leaders around the attitudes and habits needed to maintain a vision’s momentum and keep it alive and flourishing, as we revisit a previous Global Leadership Summit session focused on the difficult work of pushing a vision forward.

    KIDS/STUDENTS
    Social Media and the Mental Health of our Kids
    Kids are growing up faster than ever and experiencing different emotions at earlier ages. How does social media affect kids? How can we as parents, small group leaders, and adults support kids who are struggling? This breakout is designed to start the discussion of social media and mental health in kids.

    It’s Just a Phase: Parenting through the Middle
    Ever wonder what’s going on in the mind of a middle schooler? Ages 11, 12, 13 are the awkward years. You remember right? Greasy hair, frizzy hair, don’t care. Weight gain and weight loss.

    Disciple-Maker
    The mission of Mountain is to make disciples, more and better disciples. A clear, succinct statement grounded in the Great Commission of Matthew 28. But how exactly do you make disciples? As important, what exactly is a disciple? Gain insight and clarity on the answers to these two mission-critical questions and be better equipped to fulfill the fundamental call of every believer to be a disciple-maker.

    GLS - Rewind: Rejection Proof
    Would you like to be “rejection proof?" Revisit and discuss this recent Global Leadership Summit talk where Jia Jang shares how we can disempower the sting of rejection, and instead allow it to bring us to beautiful moments we never would have experienced had we not put ourselves out there. 

    The Mind of a Millenial
    Everyone seems to be talking about Millennials today. It’s not just because they are the largest generation by population size. It’s because we’re all fascinated with them – news coverage, political campaigns, and of course, marketers trying to figure out how to reach them. But the church is trying to reach them, too, as they are among the largest group of “nones” in society - those who select “none” on the survey asking about religious affiliation. Gain insight on their values and attitudes and learn how to better understand, connect with, and serve alongside this unique generation.

    Leading Up
    Do you know how to “lead up?” Are you someone who can effectively influence and work with people at all levels of the org chart, even those above you? “Leading up” is an essential skill for every member of an organization that makes those around you better and helps the organization more effectively fulfill its mission and create a culture of collaboration and teamwork. Learn the attitudes and actions that will allow you to intentionally support your teammates and leaders in moving the organization’s mission forward as you confidently leverage all the resources of talent and influence above you.

We'll help your kids understand their feelings, express their emotions appropriately, and develop coping skills. DC4K is for kids 5–12 years of age.
