Friday Night Intensive
This training is for pastors, helpers, counselors and parents who want in-depth training on mental health, being an effective helper, and how to be catalysts for change in our community. We want to equip you to not only enter into the messiness of relationship, but to do it as an effective helper, an educated leader, and an individual who understands that there are a lot of hard emotions but there are no bad emotions.
*Clinical professionals who attend this intensive will receive three continuing education credits from Mayfield Counseling Centers (an NBCC approved training facility.) This intensive will take place from 5pm-8pm on Friday, November 2nd in room 107 in the World Prayer Center located on the Southeast corner of New Life Church.
