Networking Seminar

Whole-Life Mentoring to Release Gospel Joy and Boldness

It is vital that our Gospel communication is authentic. Through Whole-Life mentoring “the reason for our hope” matures in us and we find relevant words to express it. In our seminar we will learn from Jesus and explore together the importance of asking questions, listening, encouraging, equipping and being in the Bible together. As we come alongside one another in mutuality and vulnerability, our lives are transformed and hope can spread in our circle of relationships.
