    Boundaries
    Mondays @ 7-8:30 PM from March 18 - May 20

    How do you respond when someone wants your time, love, energy, or money? Have you ever wondered if you could say “No” and still be loving? The Boundaries study offers biblical direction when considering these and other tough questions. We’ll explore how to set healthy boundaries with your parents, spouse, children, friends, co-workers, social media, and even with yourself.  Boundaries allow for health and happiness in relationships. Discover how sound boundaries provide freedom to walk as the loving, giving, fulfilled individual God created you to be.

    Training Camp
    Saturday, February 2 @ 8:45 AM–12 PM
    Mountain Road Campus, New Life Center

    At Training Camp you are invited to invest in yourself as a servant of Christ seeking to carry out the mission of “making more and better disciples.” As Mountain leaders share a variety of personal and spiritual growth-focused classes in a relaxed learning environment, you will be strengthened and encouraged to grow in your life and leadership.

    Below are some special notes and class listings:

    FREE: There is no fee to participate in Training Camp. This is an investment Mountain makes to grow you as a servant leader. However, registration is needed.
    SAME CLASSES BOTH SESSIONS: Unless otherwise noted, the second session is a repeat of the first session, offering the same content.
    CHILDCARE: Childcare is available at no cost. Please note that, as needed, when you register. Childcare is for ages 8 and under.
    LOCATION: The location for each class will be provided to each participant at check-in.

    Mountain Road
    Saturday, February 2 @ 8:45 AM–12 PM
    New Life Center


    Main Session @ 9–9:25 AM
    Worship & Activity Center (WAC)
    Training Camp will begin with a main session led by Lead Pastor Ben Cachiaras, sharing his thoughts on the “big mo” of leadership – MOMENTUM. No matter what type of group or organization you lead, one of the keys that will determine the level of your success is momentum. “This force of movement” can help decide how high your team will go and how quickly you will get there. At the same time, momentum can often prove illusive, something that seems to be here today and yet gone tomorrow. Learn the art of not only creating and harnessing but also maintaining what has been called “a leader’s best friend.”

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

    OUTREACH

    The Art of Neighboring

    If God’s mission is everywhere, how do we engage in it? Who is our “neighbor” and what can we do together to further God’s kingdom here, there and everywhere? Come learn, discuss and discover practical ways we can jump into God’s mission.

     

    Influencing the Culture Through Coaching 
    Coaches are among those best positioned for great influence in our culture. This session gives recreational, middle/high school and college coaches who are Christian some perspective, insight, and practical takeaways on how to influence the culture for Christ through influencing the lives of their players. Learn how to engage all aspects of an athlete’s development – the physical, the mental, the emotional, and the spiritual.  

    On Mission in the Marketplace
    We so often think that going to the mission field requires travelling hundreds of miles away when it is actually only a commute to work. The workplace is a prime mission field for every Christ-follower but is seemingly one of the trickiest ones to navigate when it comes to living out and sharing our faith. Gain some perspective, insight, and practical takeaways on how to “be on mission” at work in ways that are both honoring of Christ and respectful of your employer. 

     

    GROUPS

    Multi-ethnic Conversations

    The church is charged with providing a credible display of unity to a watching world in stark contrast to an American society struggling with polarization and division. We will examine the ramifications to today’s church of the apostle Paul’s radical gospel message of “Gentile Inclusion,” which dismantled the dividing wall of hostility between cultures, ethnicities, and classes within the community of believers in the first century multi-ethnic churches. 

    Best Group EVER!
    Best Group Ever!! Have you heard this phrase from other group leaders and wondered why your group has trouble getting people to show up? -has your group ever felt stale? -ever wondered how to take your group to the next level? -should my group do the ROOTED experience? -how should my group engage with Right Now Media? Join some of our best, seasoned group leaders for a fun time of learning on how to make your group the best experience ever! We’ll also take some time to answer any questions you might have about how to “ramp up” the excitement in your group.

    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 a Rooted discipleship experience for 10 weeks this Spring? Make sure you come to this class! We will give you all the tips and tricks of how to lead your group well. We will talk through the prayer experience, serve experience, the strongholds week and we will have some resources for you as well. This class is mandatory for those who plan to lead a ROOTED group. 


    PASTORAL CARE
    Pastoral Care (Part I) – Learning How to Care for Those Who are Hurting 
    Learning basics skills in how to care for those who are hurting as they struggle with pain, loss, or the overall difficulties that life can bring. 

    Providing Dignity to Those in Need
    Christ was always in tune with those in need. Learn how to truly see those in need around you and engage them with Christ-like love. Learn how to provide resources in a way that empowers versus enables as well as maintains the dignity of the one in need, all in an effort to help the person establish a healthier life that glorifies God.  

    Boundaries – The Loving Nature of “No”
    A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Learn some strategies for establishing healthy boundaries in your own life, including learning to say “no” to things in a life-giving way. 
     

    KIDS & STUDENTS
    It’s Just a Phase: Leading Your Little Ones
    Whether you’re a parent or a leader of young ones, this class will help you make the most of this phase your kids are in. Whether you’re in the infant “I need you now” phase or the 4 year old “why” phase, or perhaps the 10 year old “adolescence bound” phase, you’ll get some helpful insights to love and lead your kids well. 

    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.


    WELCOME
    Creating WOW Experiences for Our Guests
    Creating a “WOW” experience in our church isn’t about us; it’s all about our guests. It is about them coming back to our church so they can discover God’s love. First impressions really do matter. Get a fresh vision for what Welcome Ministry is all about and how you can make a difference. This is a class for current or prospective Welcome Ministry team members. 

    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
    Growing in Your Worship: A Worship Experience
    The Mountain Worship Staff will offer an extended worship experience highlighting the songs we sing, the prayers we pray, and the scriptures we read, focusing on how we can grow in our response to God in corporate worship.

    Life WITH God
    How differently would your life look if you concentrated on your relationship WITH Christ rather than on doing things FOR Him? We so readily fall prey to living out distortions and reductions to our Christian faith with disastrous consequences. You and I are far more than sinners, consumers, managers, and servants. We are dearly loved by God and made for eternal communion WITH Him. Everything looks different when we live life WITH Him in response to His love.

    Faith Foundations: The Life-Giving Nature of the Old Testament Law
    As we learn that boundaries and limits can be life-giving, let’s look at the origins of Old Testament law for lessons on God’s leading. As we gain a better understanding of the heart of the law, we can avoid both extremes of lawlessness and legalism as God the Lawgiver leads us to truth and grace.

    Women In Ministry
    Mountain encourages women to serve in a variety of ministry roles according to their giftedness. Various Christian traditions have differing perspectives on what the Bible teaches about this. What do we understand the Bible to teach about women in ministry? What is Mountain’s position relative to that understanding? Explore what that means for Mountain and for you. 

    Discerning God’s Will
    Many people struggle with the idea of God's will. What is His specific desire for my life? How can I know if my decisions are in keeping with what God wants for me? In this session we will talk about misconceptions about God's will, how to discern God's direction, and how to exercise freedom in our decision making.

    Faith in the Wilderness
    Christian writers, throughout the centuries, have used the image of the wilderness to describe the dark side of the spiritual journey— those times when God feels distant and hope feels elusive. But the way of Christian maturity is to recognize the desert path for what it is—another mile on the road called ‘faithfulness’—and to tread it with obedience and patience. In this time together, we’ll be challenged to think differently about the wilderness, recognizing it as an essential step in our journey of faith. 
     

    LEADERSHIP

    The Secret Sauce to Setting and Achieving Goals
    How can you maximize each day? The 4 Disciplines of Execution is an excellent guide to help you say ‘yes’ and ‘no’ to the right things, teaching you to remove the day-to-day distractions to instead focus on “Wildly Important Goals” (WIGs). Whether at home or at the office, the principles of 4DX can stimulate productiveness and produce. This module will articulate how to discover your WIG and the plan to see it come to fruition. 

    Leading with an Eye for Discipleship
    Mountain’s missional mantra is “making disciples, more and better disciples.” As we execute ministry, there is a blend of “doing” and “being” that we must skillfully balance in order to fulfill that mission. As we serve, however, we tend to focus primarily on the “doing,” the task at hand. Leaders should recognize, however, that their leadership creates a relational context not only for “doing” but for discipleship, an opportunity to shape the character of those they lead to look more like Christ. This session will explore how we as leaders can take advantage of the opportunity to move our team members toward “the better,” and develop our own leadership skills and better care for our teams along the way.

    S.P.I.E.S. – Learning How to Spy on Yourself
    This SPIES report is a simple tool to encourage holistic self-assessment among those who want to grow in the ways Jesus did. It can help us identify what God is making clear to us lately. It can help us decide to do what we must do, as well as help us ask God to do what God must do in order for us to grow. It can be useful for reflection, journaling, prayer, and sharing among spiritual friends on the journey. Learn how the S.P.I.E.S. report can be an effective tool in helping you take steps forward in your walk with Christ.

    PASTORAL CARE

    Pastoral Care (Part II) – On Mission through Pastoral Care 
    Discover Mountain's vision for pastoral care and how you can be a part of this crucial ministry. Participants should first take “Pastoral Care (Part I) – Learning How to Care for Those Who are Hurting” before taking this session.

    Providing Dignity to Those in Need
    Christ was always in tune with those in need. Learn how to truly see those in need around you and engage them with Christ-like love.

    It’s Just a Phase: Parents’ Hope for the High School Years
    Not sure how to engage your high schooler? They’re starting to look like adults, but their brains aren’t quite there yet. We say they’re overly consumed with social media, but maybe we need to step into their shoes and get a different perspective. This class will use material developed by the Rethink Group to help us all get a better grasp on how teenagers think and how we can meet them where they are.
     

    WELCOME

    Safety Response Team Training: Team Member Training on “Active Shooter”
    This class is only for current/pending Safety Response Team (SRT) members. SRT members will be exposed to current realities of active shooter incidents and learn of the law enforcement-approved plan of action employed should one find oneself in an active shooter situation.

On the second Saturday of each month, we gather together to serve in various ways throughout our community. And, the best part is, you don't have to be skilled to participate. In fact, we have projects for all ages, interests and skill levels. 

    Projects

    Some projects support the ministry of local organizations while others are aimed at meeting more specific needs in the community. We provide manual, unskilled labor and include at least one project appropriate for younger children with their parents. Projects may include:

    • Neighborhood Cleanups

    • Clearing Brush & Debris
