Most of us feel reasonably comfortable in conversations with strangers that stay light and superficial. But how do we turn strangers into friends? Better yet, how do we go beyond the superficial with those we think we know quite well, such as our family, friends, and co-workers?
The Bridge Builders Course equips and empowers people to gain excellence in building and strengthening relationships by teaching listening skills, cultivating the ability to start conversations, and developing skills to affirm and encourage others. From a ministry standpoint, Bridge Builders will teach participants how to make their church a warmer, more welcoming place for newcomers and how to create opportunities to minister to others, including how to pray with them. The training atmosphere of a Bridge Builders Course is fun, encouraging, and active. Participants leave refreshed and motivated to make an impact in the lives of others through relationships.
Community of Joy is hosting a Bridge Builders Course on Friday – Saturday, November 14 -15, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. each day. The training is offered by trained professionals from Tentmakers, an inter-denominational ministry that has skillfully trained thousands of ministry professionals and lay people since 1979 (www.tentmakerstraining.org). The cost for this event is a standard fee of $99/person, which includes lunch and snacks on both days. For attenders of Community of Joy, the cost is reduced to a very reasonable rate of $50/person for the entire event. Registrations are payable at the Community of Joy office by November 2nd.
