VOC hosts the 2011 Christian Prophetic Poets & Writers Retreat in Metro Atlanta October 26-29, 2011
Atlanta, Georgia -- Voices of Christ Literary Ministries International (VOC) will host its premier Christian Prophetic Poets & Writers Retreat Wednesday-Saturday, October 26-29, 2011 in Greater Atlanta. This is the only writing retreat tailored specifically for prophetic, literary ministers of the Gospel.
The retreat features highly unique and powerful apostolic-prophetic teachings, interactive sessions and demonstrations that explain and uncover the ministry of the prophetic scribe and the increasing role they play in congregations world-wide. Until now, there have been very few Christian prophetic writer retreats and gatherings that meet the unique needs of this population of writers in such an intimate setting.
“As Christian writers, we can go almost anywhere, anytime and on any given day to learn to craft a good story, position ourselves for mainstream publishing or even to market or promote our books,” said Theresa Harvard Johnson, found of VOC. “While this information is valuable to us, Voices of Christ believes that it is of greater importance to understand the depth of our faith in the midst of the call to write. You see, the Christian writer’s pursuit is first for the Kingdom of Heaven. Finding our identity and purpose in the midst of this focus is at the very foundation of our writing retreats. We firmly believe that to be effective witnesses of the Gospel we must know who we are in a greater way; what we’ve been sent to do and how it is to be walked out before the Lord.”
The keynote speakers and presenters are intercessors who have a heart for worship – especially in the area of the arts. They also have keen insight and understanding concerning the role of worship and apostolic order in worship in the arts as well as in the administration of local congregations. This insight pours into in-depth teachings on the administrative, instructional and creative aspects of scribal ministry that many Christian writers have yet to tap into.
The retreat will feature teachings from The Scribal Anointing® training curriculum; highly interactive sessions; worship arts presentations, demonstration and activations; and evening worship services. There will be a special, informal roundtable entitled, The Chamber of the Scribe, in which prophetic writer’s gather to discuss the direction of scribal ministry and worship; and how we can affect change in the earth through our gifting.
The retreat will be held at Southside Christian Fellowship located at 750 Mount Carmel Parkway in McDonough, Georgia, just 25 miles south of the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta Airport. For more information email retreat(at)voicesofchrist.org or visit us online at http://schoolofthescribe.com.
