Jesus is Stronger: Seeing Jesus’ Power in Scripture and in our own Discipleship
In this seminar we will plunge deeply into the first half of Mark’s Gospel, where Jesus is presented as the One who is stronger. Mark’s Gospel shows us that Jesus is the One more powerful than John the Baptist (1:7), the One more powerful than Satan (3:27), the One more powerful than the wind and the waves (4:41). We’ll engage this Gospel portrait of Jesus on a number of levels. We will look at historical and cultural circumstances, which will help us gain a more accurate view of the text. We’ll examine Mark’s use of the Hebrew Scriptures and how that adds to his portrait of Jesus. We will consider what it meant for Mark and what it means for us to be a disciple of such a Rabbi. And through it all, we will take time to worship the One who is stronger.
The cost to attend this training day is $50. Lunch is included.

Hear the Word of the Lord! Spirit-breathed messages for the church of Aotearoa
The biblical prophets were Spirit-anointed preachers who spoke the word of God to the people of God. Through striking and often startling poetry, they painted pictures about the heart of God, the purposes of God, and what it means to be the people of God in changing and challenging times. In this seminar, through these same prophets, we’re going to ask together: What is the word of the Lord for the church in Aotearoa today? Carey lecturers Michael Rhodes, Emma Stokes, and John Tucker will each unpack an Old Testament prophetic text, and together we will discuss what the Lord might be saying to us in our current context. If you’re a pastor or ministry volunteer or a Christian disciple wanting to hear the word of the Lord, and live in ways that are faithful to your calling, then this interactive seminar is for you.
The cost to attend this training day is $30. Lunch is included.
