This past year we have been very grateful for the way God has been at work among us. One example of a church that has had major impact is Waterbrook Community Bible Church in Tomah. Waterbrook has seen people repent in their chuch and discover their need to be in a vital relationship with God. On the weekend of October 1-3 the Central Baptist Association will have 7 churches participating in a weekend on prayer, discipleship, repentance, and spiritual awakening.
Be in prayer that God will work through the 91 people coming form 15 states. In the picture in this post you see a portion of the people who will be coming. Pray that our churches will have a heart of gratitude and expectancy as these servants come to teach. Pray our churches will be open to having a fresh encounter with the Lord so God’s Holy Spirit can move in a mighty way. Here is more about the rationale for these weekends.
All Christians should be experiencing an intimate love relationship with God. The Lord expects spiritual growth in all those who truly follow Him. All Christians are expected to be on mission with God. All Churches are expected to be on mission with God.
BASIC RATIONALE FOR EXPERIENCING GOD WEEKEND EVENTS
Henry Blackaby’s life message has impacted thousands and awakened them to join God in His eternal purposes.
God has blessed churches that have intentionally set their hearts together as they corporately study these timely messages to His Body.
Salvation is an ongoing spiritual process that leads to an enhanced love relationship, a transformed life, and an increased emphasis and involvement in being on mission with God.

Unfortunately, both individuals and churches can find themselves consumed by activity and needs, and depleted of spiritual perspective and energy. As such, Blackaby Ministries International coordinates weekend events designed to bring about spiritual renewal in the hearts of God’s people.
A visiting team is invited to provide leadership for each Experiencing God Weekend event. Each weekend is designed to overview the basic life message found in the complete book that is to be used as a follow-up study. God will do His greatest work during the follow-up studies as He speaks to His whole Body simultaneously.
