Creating Conversations That Matter is a very practical, interactive workshop that helps participants move from empathetic listening and the awkward feeling of have nothing to offer back but the often hollow, “I’ll pray for you.” or, “You should remember this Scripture promise…” or worse, the temptation to advise, into conversations that matter, deeper than news, weather, and sports, that actually helps people find clarity in their circumstances, hear from God, and walk away with a next step that moves them a bit closer to God and who He created them to be. It doesn’t take an expert, but it does take a little practice, and a heart for others.
This workshop is great for anyone wishing to lead a group, wants to fight for the hearts of others, or just wants to learn to go deeper with his or her friends on the Great Adventure of the Christian life. This workshop will equip you to relate to others in a new way.
