This Seminar focuses on the true meaning of the word "Ekklesia" and its implications for how we function as the Body of Christ today. Ekkelsia was an open, interactive and participatory gathering in all the major Greek cities of New Testament times. In his letter to Corinth (a former Greek city state then under Roman rule) Paul described Christian Ekklesia like this:

1 Corinthians 14:26 “What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.”

These words couldn’t help but cause the Christians in Corinth to remember the history of their city’s Ekklesia and how they, as believers, should also meet in an open, equal and participatory style.

Come and discover what the unfolding of this important word means for us today as God's Ekklesia here on earth - building Kingdom communities of contending prayer and service!
