A cornerstone of GenOn Ministries for generations has been our in-person training where faith communities are enriched and Christian relationships deepen. In recent months, we’ve adapted swiftly to meet the current needs of churches and organizations seeking ways to move forward while relying on virtual community via Zoom. Our focus for training in 2020-2021 is virtual.
“Thanks so much for leading the private LOGOS Boost training with our ministers, staff, and steering committee. I do think it was meaningful and useful. We appreciated your providing the foundational information, and it was helpful for all of us to be present (and to learn new ways to lead LOGOS). I liked the activities and thought the content was what was needed for our church!”
