Experiential and Interactive

The training sessions are experiential and interactive with a focus on developing relational, personal management and communication skills. Participants can expect to deepen their personal discipleship habits, cultivate leadership skills and God-given confidence, while discovering a vision to impact one’s church, school and life.
