Journaling for Spiritual Transformation

Journaling for Spiritual Transformation

Track Description:

What can help us tease apart the many things that clutter our hearts and minds, to sense God’s work in our lives and experience renewal and deepening?

Journaling is a powerful spiritual discipline that can build faith through bringing clarity and courage about one’s life.

Rev Jenni Ho-Huan has taught this for several years now, and even the most reluctant ‘writer’ has been surprised at how much lies ‘beneath the surface’.

My vision is to help you take care of the deepest and truest part of you: you soul, for everything of life springs from it.” – Jenni Ho-Huan

Leaders Learning-Lab

The Role of the Elders & Council in Church Health

The Role of the Elders & Council in Church Health…

If there was a “command centre” of the church for direction and vision, besides the Senior Pastor or Lead Elder, it would be the Elders & Council.

No wonder this is the arena of much attack, conflict and ambiguity as observed in ministry amongst churches.

In this Leaders Learning-Lab (L3), we will cover:

  • Biblical roles of the Elder-Council
  • A model for Decision-Making
  • Individual roles Elder-Council members can play to aid Church Health

Let’s build a good foundation for the Elders & Council that lends to clarity, clear decision-making and leadership succession!

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ…stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. (Philippians 1:27-29)

Hear what our past participants have to say about L3

What’s Wrong with our Small Groups in this Post-Pandemic Season?

“It was intentionally made to be interactive (asking us to comment, ask questions, etc).
It started on time!
Nice cozy group, more intimate setting.
Breakout room segment was very useful, facilitator was great at asking and answering questions to ensure the time was made fruitful.”

Redefining Church in The New Normal

“The systematic breakdown of the 3 Ps and how they interact is a helpful tool for church leadership and members to discuss, comment and contribute inputs to the elements of church life to them.

For church leaders it is also a useful tool for evaluating and building the structures that support and lead the church.”

Building An Evangelistic Culture: Believers Who Share The Gospel Wherever They Go

“Ministry architecture is an interesting perspective. The approach is refreshing and useful. The facilitators are knowledgeable and helpful.”

Look out for upcoming topics and sessions for 2023!

Be Still and Know

Treasures From Silence to Transform Your Life

City living is busy, stressful and noisy. It generates a lifestyle of haste with an addiction to fast-fixes. It feels impossible to find quiet, to rest and to think deeply.

Our longing is to experience enduring peace, stronger relationships and a better sense of our unique place in the world. To do so, we must hunger for life as it is meant to be—connected to its Source and maturing into fullness and fruitfulness. This requires that we become familiar with silence as a place to visit and feel at home in. For it is in the silence that we encounter ourselves, others and God in radical ways.

Let this volume, movingly told through personal narrative, help you make your way to the land of silence and be amazed at how it impacts your life as you grow in peace, patience and passion.

What others say about the book

“It is apparent that this little book grows out of the deep experience of its author. Its aphoristic, catchy phrases draw the reader ineluctably into meditation. I came away much refreshed. I hope that it will get the wide dissemination it deserves.”

– Simon Chan, Professor, Systematic Theology
Trinity Theological College

“Surprising facets of silence emerge, punctuated with personal anecdotes narrated in a lively, authentic, and deeply spiritual ‘voice’. This little book facilitates the beginning and continuation of an unforgettable journey filled with treasures that accompany silence, – getting to know who God truly is and who we really are, and learning to live a life that is free, unencumbered, uncluttered, just as the Maker intended it to be.”

– Mary Tay, Former Lecturer, Linguistics
National University of Singapore

About the Author

Jenni Ho-Huan’s journey as a writer began with a friend’s reply to her letter ”Jenni, you should really write”. That one remark lingered around, burrowed in and grew into a quest to touch lives through the authentic writing of her experiences. To her, words are beautiful and powerful, especially as it brings us to The Word – that final creative act that is Jesus, on the Cross, dying so that we may have Life in life.

“My vision is to help you take care of the deepest and truest part of you: your soul, for everything of life springs from it.” – Jenni Ho-Huan
