2020 Workshop

Pastors: Be Encouraged! Encouragement for Those Discouraged in Ministry


Ministry can be tough. It can be full of discouragement, disappointment and frustration. It can make a person old before their time. Because of it, church volunteers, ministers and pastors need to be encouraged regularly! In this workshop Pastor Matty will strive to do just that – encourage those in attendance so that they can with joy return to work God has called them to.
