Deacon Training

Deacon Training

How to effectively respond to benevolence requests is a challenge many leaders face. The tensions within us are great as we consider how to best come alongside of someone in need. Are we empowering or enabling, fixing, helping, listening, serving? Are we being good stewards with what God has given us? Join others as we look at this important topic.
