“I LOVE how intimate the setting was. This could have easily been a conference that HUNDREDS of ministry leaders could attend at one time, but you intentionally keep it smaller and more intimate. This is so very valuable. This workshop is invaluable to anyone trying to establish and grow a small group ministry.”

Alex Berger, Summit Christian Church

“I like getting to seen an existing successful ministry model and have the facilitators available to teach and answer questions.

“Access to hearing straight from Larry and his overall very vulnerable approach.
