The weekend of April 26-28, a group of 60 ladies from across Minnesota and Manitoba met together at Andover SDA Church to receive training and certification from the General Conference in leadership training. Too often women can feel they are not knowledgeable enough or not educated enough to create or serve in a ministry for their church or community. The weekend was designed to equip and empower women to step out and serve in whatever capacity God has gifted them for. Another goal of the seminar was to help women create networks and a support system. Throughout the weekend the participants attended seminars ranging from the basics of counseling to how to give an effective presentation to how to run a small group. They also worked together in small groups made up of people they did not know or did not know well and were not people they had come with. It was a great time of learning and growing! We hope to offer this opportunity again next year with different seminar topics. Please watch for information and plan to attend!
