Understand yourself and others from a Christian perspective, with the aim of developing and expanding your listening skills.
Most people need help at times as they journey through life. A sympathetic listening ear is always appreciated, but sometimes people need more. We can help equip you to play a part in the lives of those who are struggling, enabling them to move forward and discover the freedom to grow into all that God desires them to be.
