How Does the Cleansing Stream Seminar Work?

View Retreat Resources

It is recommended that the approach selected to conduct the Cleaning Stream Seminar in your church contain the following elements for each session:

  1. DVD Teachings: View the seminar teachings, including the wise counsel and  encouragement from Pastor Jack Hayford at the end of each teaching. Participants take notes in their  Seminar workbook.
  2. Participant Resources: Participants complete the homework assigned for each session. This includes further study exercises, reading the  books, CDs and daily scriptures assigned for that session.
  3. Small Group Discussion: A small group setting is recommended, promoting discussion for three basic questions about the Session’s foundational truth: What is it” Why do it? How do we do it?
  4. Putting it into Practice: Encourage your group to hear the Word and put it into practice!

There are several different ways and variations possible to conduct the seminar in your local church. The presentation methods can be adapted to accommodate the circumstances and culture.  It is a good idea to talk to other leaders who have already conducted the Seminar in their church to find useful ideas and avoid pitfalls where others have learned through experience what works best in their setting.

Typically leaders have found that approaches which include the following work in most settings:

  • Weekly meetings, 1 1/2 to 2 hours in length.
  • Using small group formats to maximize discussion and learning how to apply what is learned.
  • Each session takes two or three weeks to cover the content and activities thoroughly, and to give the participants time to do the assigned work at home.
  • Participation in the area or regional retreat is considered an essential component of the seminar.
  • Session Six wherever possible being presented after participants have attended the Area Retreat.
