Materials will not be mailed out before the training. The focus of August 16th will be to discuss the materials and how we will use them to help us develop a spiritually disciplined life. Participants will choose a discipline area(s) they want to work on and focus on that area: August 17th –October 17th.
Part Two (October 18th) We will gather to discuss progress and insights God has revealed to us during this time. No one will be asked to share personal information. All sharing will be confidential and voluntary. The goal is to take this training back to your church and lead others and/or present to church to consider for a bible study. This training will provide 3 more years of certification to be a Certified Lay Speaker.
