CC-Immersions-Large

Freedom is not just about changing behavior, it’s about letting God change our very being.


Freedom Immersions are dynamic three day training courses designed to equip and restore the believer in Christ in a hands-on learning environment. Participants will all receive personal prayer ministry from City Central teams. Immersions are all about becoming more like Jesus and reflecting His love and power to everyone around us.

Almost all of those who participate in Freedom Immersions sign up because they have been impacted by the transformed life of a close friend or relative. Consider investing a weekend of your life to begin to live pursuing restoration and an abundant life with Jesus Christ.

Our next Freedom Immersion is Freedom 1, Replicate & Kid’s Immersion | July 14-16

Freedom II could easily be re-titled “Brokenness and Humility 101.” The focus of the entire study is a longing to be like Christ and in every way reflect his heart.

Replicate

If you have been through Freedom I and desire to learn how to help others, you will not want to miss this training. Replicate runs concurrently with a Freedom Immersion Weekend and focuses on helping those who have been living in the principles of restoration become equipped to pray for others. Through hands-on training and instruction, you will learn the power of praying in teams, learn to tune your ears to hear from the Lord, understand the heart of a replicator, and explore how restoration and discipleship collide in a dynamic relationship, all the while gaining God’s heart for the church in today’s ever darkening culture. We will be exploring these topics and many more during our Replicate weekend.

Marriage Immersion

Jesus tells us that He comes to give us abundant life. This is not only for ourselves, but also for our marriages. What would your marriage look like living in abundance? The Marriage Immersion is a weekend of transformational teaching, worship, and prayer as we seek the Lord for His vision, restoration plan, and healing over your marriage and family. We explore God’s “Original Design” for each marriage and break down hidden resentments. We also delve into understanding the sting of withholding and learn the essentials to living out a vibrant Christ-centered marriage.

The Biblical principles we share at Marriage Immersions richly nourish couples and have brought freedom to many marriages over the years. Whether you have a healthy marriage and are craving more of God’s presence in your home or you feel stuck and hopeless, join us for an amazing weekend of breakthrough into deeper levels of intimacy with the Lord and one another.

“Marriage Immersion is a unique and very effective seminar for married couples. We were privileged to host this event at our church, and it was the most effective seminar we have ever experienced. Led by Chris and Jena Hippe and their team, Marriage Immersion seeks to help husbands and wives come into their individual freedom in Christ, and then helps them as a couple to build their relationship on that foundation of freedom. A truly refreshing approach to building better marriages!”
    -Steve Fry, Senior Pastor of the Gate Community Church in Franklin Tennessee, and President of Messenger Fellowship.

Everyone who attends will have a chance for indiviual prayer times. Plus, we’ll spend time out and about in Tacoma grabbing food, ice cream, and going to a corn maze.

Kid’s Freedom Immersion

Kid’s Freedom Immersion is our introduction to kids living free in Christ. The Kid’s Immersion is designed for kids ages 7-12. Topics covered include:

  • Salvation & The Holy Spirit – What it means to be fully saved and set apart for our King and His great works, and what it means to be friends with the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us.
  • Original Design – God created us each so uniquely and according to His great pleasure. When we know His design for our lives, we are empowered to live in the fullness of what He has for us.
  • Authority of the Believer – When we know our authority in Jesus, we are no longer powerless to the ways of the enemy, whose main goal is to steal, kill and destroy. We can rise up, speak truth and fight for the fullness of life in Christ.
  • Blessings & Curses – The tongue holds the power of life and death, and we need to know how to use it. Our words are very important, and we are created to bless and encourage those who are around us.

Each child will also receive two separate prayer times, do fun art projects, have delicious healthy snacks, and go on a surprise adventure.

Transportation

We suggest that you arrange for a rental car during your time in Tacoma. The city does not have very good public transportation and is quite spread out, which requires a vehicle to get around. Cars are available to rent directly from the Seattle/Tacoma airport if you are flying in, which is about a 30 minute drive from Tacoma. If you would like to share a rental car with other Immersion participants, indicate that preference on the registration form.
