I have just finished two encouraging evenings with members of LifeGate Church of Christ and the Carnegie Uniting Church We looked at a range of skills for effective mentoring. Thanks to Pastor Tham Fuan and Cristiana (Mentoring Ministry) for organising the training.
I always enjoy the opportunity to spend a few days with the facilitators of Victorian Ministry Renewal Retreats. This year we met at the Wycliffe Retreat Centre at Kangaroo Ground. We covered a range of facilitation processes including preparing and delivering leadership development workshops, facilitating mapping exercises, handling difficult situations and people and the Biblical foundations of Retreating.
