Recovery Workshop: Portraits of a Family

When: Saturday, February 24 | 9-11:30a
Where: Soma Midtown | 2815 E 62nd St

Our adult narrative began with our families’ backgrounds and legacies. This framed a picture of who we are and what the world is through our family roles, rules and relationships. But it may not be the right story - the story of our lives as God sees it. Maturing means both understanding and owning how our families have shaped us, and letting God reshape us with his grace, his truth, and his movement in our lives.

During this workshop we will:

  • Acknowledge our family background without having that define your life
  • How to rework personal and family dynamics to bring about godly movement and grace
  • Understand the way that we are able bring a new expression of God’s truth into our daily lives

Childcare will be available for this.

Soma Church Midtown, 2815 East 62nd Street

Cost to attend is $15.  

Speakers:

Jody is an Indianapolis native, but has lived several other places in her adult life. She became a believer while living in Japan right after college. She worked with Cru for 11 years and went back to Japan for a year to work as a missionary. She met her husband Bobby in 2009 and now she’s not only a wife to Bobby, but a mom to Jack, Lucy, and Annie. Jody’s passions in life are Jesus and people. She enjoys caring for women as they develop a deeper love for Jesus and walk in the freedom of how He's specifically created them.

Deb Dunlevy was born in Indiana and grew up everywhere else. God has taken her on a journey through several states, a few career changes, and a decade in South America. She and her husband, Nate, are now proudly raising their three kids in Pike Township, where she's finding the unexpected joy of putting down roots. Deb works as an author and editor, and divides her time between writing, juggling Little League schedules, and loving on her community at Soma.

Robin MacKinnon, conference speaker, Soma Kids director, and Coke Zero addict, has a passion for equipping others to live abundantly in Christ! As a homeschooling mother of five she seeks to love her kids well and is married to an amazing man who keeps her laughing.

Jodi Sarver is married to Chris.  She has 4 children:  Lydia, Lucas, Abram and Annalise.  She has a B.S. in Psychology from Western Michigan University.  She worked with CRU, a campus ministry, for 22 years ministering to college students and developing CRU staff.

Soma Church Midtown, 2815 E 62nd Street

Equipping the church to help the poor find fullness of life in God's Kingdom.

In this day-long workshop, we’ll offer a biblical perspective for helping individuals out of material poverty; we’ll also help churches move toward developing a mercy ministry that emphasizes economic and community development.

We'll have a full line-up of speakers including Dr. Carl Ellis who is currently serving as Associate Pastor for Cultural Apologetics at New City Fellowship Church in Chattanooga, TN and serves on numerous boards as a consultant on cultural matters.
