Our theory is that adult learning is different from mandatory education. That adult learning is peer-to-peer and has few of the tropes and expectations of industrial education. That a video lecture is insufficient to actually learn something if it is not coupled with experiential life lessons. This is especially true if the subject has to do with a persons identity. Because many people feel they are less than who God says they are, we get our identity from our careers, our political positions, our roles in the family and a number of lesser things. However, when we understand who God is, we more fully understand who we are.
The Overcome Defined is built around our ability to receive clarity and support from like minded people through the use of teachings from some of the top thought leaders in the world. We use a system that we call " Facebook to Fans " which is a way to reach a lot of people in a virtual way but that also brings an experiential encounter that challenges people to go deep in our Identity in Christ.
When you introduce yourself to someone for the first time, you have an opportunity to define yourself. You disclose your name, profession, and interests. These factors help our culture define us, but are those answers enough? People are struggling in ten thousand ways because of identity issues. They can’t help but ask, who am I? and why do I matter? Can our culture really provide meaningful answers to those questions, or do we need something deeper and more significant?
Before asking, who am I? we need to be able to answer, who is God? If we can’t answer the first question, we will never answer the second. The problem with our search for identity is that we are looking in all the wrong places. Scripture teaches that we are all made in the image of God. We do not define ourselves—the Creator does. We were all created to be known and loved by God. Once those answers are clear, we can move forward and discover all God has called us to be.
