Ministry Exchange Workshop Series "Christian Community Development"

Virtual Zoom

Series begins October 19th through November 9th

Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit but need guidance with living into God’s mission? Are you sensing that God wants you to focus more on the outside of your church building and step into the community? Perhaps you are seeking to develop a community-based non-profit and/or are looking for meaningful ways to engage your local community?

The workshop will consist of four, live virtual sessions, private consultative sessions with the facilitator and a final project development plan that participants can immediately implement after the workshop series is finished.  Cost for the complete workshop is $99. Your time investment will include 4, two-hour virtual sessions, 2 hours outside assignments and a one-hour video conference with the facilitator.
