Course Description


In this course, there is hope to equip the learner with some tools to ascertain, to understand, to assess, and to engage, any congregation's culture. I want to help you to think holistically about a congregation's cultural needs, their pain points, and hopefully, equip you with some tools to develop a healthier culture in whichever congregation that you're engaging.
