Ready to Serve. Again.

It’s coming to the end of another year in ministry. You’ll be showing up to church to teach. Again. But somehow, you don’t have the same spark you had when you had started. You have long lost the belief that you are making a difference, and are quite discouraged and at this point, you’re just going through the motions. The truth is, you are likely underestimating the depth of your influence on students, both positive and negative. This workshop will give you practical ways to combat doubts and burnout, and through self-reflection and study of the Bible, help you to get excited to serve the children. Again.
