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. AGAPE offers training sessions designed to equip ministry leaders with counseling resources to help you better engage your congregation in powerful and transformative ways. Sessions will be held at AGAPE's main office
