This workshop is for people who while witnessing or counseling, find themselves listening to people explain "how wrong is now the new right!" It provides biblical tools to help them engage individuals or groups using compassion and GOD's truth, without compromising the Foundation of Christ. It prepares participants to contend for the Faith, in love, as laws and special interest groups increasingly call, good evil and evil good!
The workshop calls attention to the "Gift of Helps" and it's importance in todays church. It challenges individuals who do the work of ministry, without the title, to understand the significance of their labor. It will refresh attendees who have become weary in their well doing. It provides tools to help one better assist their Pastor, local church and community without becoming burned out.
