Do you ever wish you had a map to help you navigate the complex and often confusing worlds of church members? 

God created us as beautifully complex beings, with souls, minds, bodies and personalities. Sometimes ministers can find themselves in deep waters with others’ issues and no clear map for navigating safely through. This fall, AGAPE is offering a series of four 2-hour training sessions designed to equip ministry leaders with counseling resources to help you better engage your congregation in powerful and transformative ways. Cost per session is $10/person or $25/church (bring as many ministry leaders as you’d like). Sessions will be held at AGAPE's main office
 
Upcoming courses are listed below:
