A question that Christian parents often have for their kids is: “How do I help my child to have a real faith?”
We want more than good behavior, more than simple knowledge…we want our children to have a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. Can this happen?
Since 1991 thousands of individuals have had the opportunity to grow in their knowledge of the person and the work of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ through the Dunamis Project! One question that has emerged over the years is, “How do we make the whole Dunamis Project available for families?”
Yes! Because just like adults, children are given the gift of the Holy Spirit in His fullness and power. The Holy Spirit is just as much a “Helper” for kids as he is for adults.

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit." -John 3:8
What does it look like to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in our day-to-day lives?
This is the question we will engage each summer, gathering as a group of young adults (18-30) to learn more about what life looks like in the Holy Spirit’s power.
Come join us as we explore God's invitation to engage with others and the world He loves! With the Wind is a spiritual formation retreat that features teaching, prayer, and worship designed to help you learn to hear and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in your everyday life.
During this event, we will explore how to walk in the full armor of God as we face the spiritual reality of trials and battles in our lives. There will be times of fellowship and discussion, Spirit-led worship, and opportunity to meet with God on the mountain trails.

Upward Challenge is a week-long event that focuses on introducing participants to the person of the Holy Spirit, encourages them to seek a deeper walk with Jesus Christ and nurtures a growing relationship with God the Father.
This year's camp is called "Game Changers - Teaming up with the Holy Spirit."
We will focus on learning how we can work with the Holy Spirit to draw others into the Kingdom and learn to recognize the gifts that he's given each one of us. We'll be learning:
- When and what is the kingdom of God
- What the Holy Spirit does
- What spiritual gifts are and what they're for
- How to team up with the Holy Spirit and cooperate with Him
- How to hear and discern when the Spirit is speaking

Moses, Aaron, and Hur modeled different roles in prayer, all involving intercession.
Are you a front-line intercessor? A personal intercessor for those doing that front-line engagement? Does God use you to gather information to inform others’ intercession?
Whatever your role, consider joining us to be equipped for your vital role in the work of intercession.
Worship, prayer, teaching, and fellowship at the Community of the Cross will be the context for this intensive equipping retreat. You will receive practical instruction on how to apply strategies and tactics for cooperating with the Holy Spirit, who is defeating the demonic strongholds that are blocking the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As led by the Holy Spirit, we may form cohorts and be led into actual prayer engagements.
Who is this equipping for?
- Those who have a burden to do something about the evils that we see growing in the world.
- Those already called into intercessory prayer and spiritual warfare who need to grow in this work.
- Those who are called to be supportive of those intercessors and spiritual warriors.
- Those called to mobilize, equip, and deploy intercessory prayer teams to engage in this work.

Have you ever wanted to be more effective in your prayer life?
Do you think God only answers the prayers of “prayer warriors?”
Whether you think you are simply “not good” at prayer, want to go deeper in your walk with God through prayer, or want to grow in your understanding of intercessory prayer, this conference will give you Biblical foundations and practical instruction to help you grow in both personal and corporate prayer, led by the Holy Spirit.
In “The Power of Prayer” we look at how any Christian can pray with vision and power.
Sessions move between focusing on growing in intimacy with Jesus Christ through prayer and participating with God in shaping the future through intercessory prayer.

The first retreat in the Dunamis series focuses on worldview, spiritual reality, and the nature and work of the Holy Spirit.
We study the nature of the Spirit’s power and pray for the infilling with the Holy Spirit.
Whether you have reached a place in your Christian faith or ministry where it feels like you are trying to do too much on your own, or you are simply curious or skeptical about the nature and work of the Holy Spirit for today, this conference is a fantastic way to begin your journey in cooperating with the work of God.

Are we really in some kind of spiritual warfare?
Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12 that “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” What is he talking about, and what else does the Bible reveal about our role and God's role in the struggle against the world, the flesh and the devil?
This fifth Dunamis Project addresses the reality of the demonic realm, personal deliverance ministry, the discernment process, the importance and effectiveness of the armor of God as outlined in Ephesians 6, spiritual warfare, and kingdom advancement.
If you move in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and seek to advance the kingdom of God then you will inevitably come across spiritual opposition, whether it is subtle or direct. This course will give systematic teaching and experience of what that is and how to deal with it.
