Apprentice - someone who binds themselves to another to become like them. To learn to think like they think. To know what they know. To be able to do what they do. How do we apprentice Jesus, especially in the chaotic and busy world in which most of us live? James Bryan Smith, author of the Apprentice Series (The Good and Beautiful God, The Good and Beautiful Life, and The Good and Beautiful Community), offers a practical conference drawing from the richness of scripture and the Christian tradition, to empower you on your journey to apprentice the Savior. The conference covers the questions: How do we see God in our daily lives? How do we find balance in our daily lives? How do we develop character? How do we build community?

Lectures include:

  • How Do We See God in Our Daily Lives - James Bryan Smith
  • How Do You Develop Character? - Gordon T. Smith
  • How Do We Find Daily Balance - James Bryan Smith
  • How Do We Build Community? - James Bryan Smith
