Bring your priest, music minister, new staff or Core Members, and anyone else who is a key player in your ministry! You're guaranteed to walk away from this training plugged in to a vast network of support, knowing that you're not in this alone.

By now, my dear freshman friend, you’re probably in a pretty good groove when it comes to high school.
