TENDING THE FIRE
Tending The Fire is a series of three retreats that invites participants to apply Family Systems Theory to their life and ministry. By doing so, clergy can become better congregational leaders who are less worried and more engaged in their own lives and the life of their church. Prior participants find it some of the most beneficial continuing education time they have ever spent.

Don't let that price derail you. Funds have been available to manage that cost.
