Would Definitely Recommend

I don’t know when I’ve had so much fun learning!  It also dove-tailed in perfectly with some of the exercises for the Intentional Interim Training I am taking.  I would definitely recommend it to others!

Transformative

This is one of the most helpful things I’ve attended in my 14 years of ministry.  I believe it will be transformative both for me personally and for the congregation I serve.  It will help me make a good place even better!

Would Have Taken Us 1 Year
