Spring Groundworks Sessions

In our current divisive political environment any conversation about differences feels especially charged. It's easy for us to retreat into our subgroups and avoid these conversations. Yet there is so much to be gained by understand ourselves, how our viewpoints and beliefs develop while also learning how to effectively communicate with diverse others.

At our training, ministry leaders will be supported in serving their communities and unifying the nations represented in our city.

Non-profit staff will be given the opportunity to reconnect to the bigger picture and be refreshed and equipped to engage with the communities they serve.

Mentors will learn ways to bridge the gap and be better prepared as they build trust and invest more of themselves in those they mentor

First Responders will be welcomed as the people they are behind their uniforms. Who you are matters just as much as what you do, our desire is to give you space to explore the perspectives and experiences that have shaped you.

Students will grow in knowing themselves and expand skills to thrive in leadership and diverse relationships.  

Foster parents and families will be equipped to cultivate stronger bonds with those they care for.
