Speaking Topics for Retreats and Conferences
TRAINING TO LIVE LOVED
It is critical for women to: 1. Know and love God, 2. Know who they are in Christ Jesus, and 3. Love their neighbors. (This message can be broken into two or three segments for either a women’s conference or leadership retreat.)
WHEN LIFE AND BELIEFS COLLIDE
Life is sometimes difficult. It is critical to seek God on the mountain peaks so we know without a shadow of doubt he is with us in the midst of our valleys. When faced with suffering, we must choose to trust the character of God
MENTOR FOR LIFE
Natasha can present on numerous topics from her book, Mentor for Life: Finding Purpose Through Intentional Discipleship. The book presents a mentoring framework of: knowing and loving God, knowing your identity in Christ Jesus, and loving your neighbor as yourself. It also shares six mentoring commitments: presence, discipline, mission, community, relationships, and love.
I’LL GO WHERE YOU GO
With highlights for the mentoring relationship between Naomi and Ruth, women are encouraged to accept the responsibility of mentoring as presented in the book of Titus, chapter two. The message presents the generational blessings of mentoring, and what we miss when we refuse to take this responsibility seriously.
WHAT ABOUT YOUR FRIENDS?
God said, “It is not good for man to be alone (Gen. 2:18).” The intimate relationships of David and Jonathan, Elisha and Elijah, and Jesus with the disciples all reveal that we were created for community. God calls us to friendship and beckons us to befriend others.
Leadership Workshops & Teaching
The “why” and “how” of sharing biblical truth in a hostile world. Christian leaders are called to create, educate, engage, and multiply so that the Church can lead again.
SOLDIERS IN THE ARENA
Using King Saul as a leadership model: this workshop presents three temptations that can lead to moral failure: fear, the inability to wait, and the lack of obedience
THE CHRISTIAN LEADER AS MENTOR
What is mentoring? Why do it? What is the mentoring mission? What is the biblical framework for mentoring relationships in a small group or community?
THE PRAYER AND FASTING LIFE OF THE CHRISTIAN LEADER
Leaders need to focus on “being” with God and allow their “doing” to naturally flow out of time spent in God’s presence. God establishes, Christ confirms, and the Holy Spirit sustains kingdom work that stands the test of time (1 Cor. 3:10-15).
A WELL-ORDERED LIFE FOR WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
In order for a woman to lead others well, the first person she must learn to lead is herself. Self-leadership means growing in wisdom, discernment, and courageously pursuing the call, priorities, and even the limitations God has allowed in her life.
Mentoring and Leadership Training & Consulting
Natasha offers leadership and mentoring training and consulting to engage, equip, and empower teams to effectively serve those in their areas of influence. Training and coaching topics include, though are not limited to, the following:
Being a Peacemaker
The Art of Listening and Asking the Right Questions
The Soul of a Leader
Leading Through Change
The Shepherding Heart of the Leader
Jesus Driven Ministry
Leading on a Mission
Avoiding Spiritual Burnout
MY SOUL RESTS IN GOD
In Psalms 62:5-8, David invites our soul to find rest in God alone. Our hope comes from him. God is our rock, salvation, fortress, and refuge. Our honor depends on him. Therefore, we can trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him. (Any one or several of these themes can be highlighted based on the specific needs of the attendees.)
For Young People and Emerging Leaders
The importance of developing a network of healthy relationships. What kind of relationships do you need in life? How do develop a network of wise mentors to counsel, and the power of peer-to-peer mentoring.
A LEADER’S VOICE
How to communicate as a whole person—using our words, bodies, and experiences to inspire and encourage others to operate in God’s purpose.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE YOUNG AND CHALLENGED
Will you live godly? Using Timothy as a model, this message encourages young people to live with integrity and as a person of character.
HOW TO USE YOUR CAREER TO SERVE AND BLESS OTHERS
What is the purpose and nature of our work? Navigating life’s transitions when anxious and broken, understanding a career or calling, and considering your values.
Our choices ultimately determine our character. We can make good choices to develop ourselves morally, mentally, and physically.
BE INTENTIONAL & DO WHAT YOU CAN
Using Proverbs 31:10-31, moms are encouraged in their responsibility concerning their little ones. Inspired by Elisa Morgan’s, She Did What She Could.
Encouraging and cultivating your child’s gifts. Managing yourself, family goals, navigating your “yes” and “no,” and rediscovering what’s really important.
What mom cannot afford to neglect making disciples in the home.
