TALKS & TOPICS While there are several topics that I'm equipped to speak on, I'll never deliver a "canned speech." Whether you're looking for a keynote speaker, a workshop teacher, or an experienced retreat leader, consider how we can partner together to create an event and a message that aligns with your needs and goals.
A typical retreat or workshop might include the following elements:
- Receive (a time to receive new teaching and suggestions for spiritual growth) - Renew (A time to listen to God through the Word, silence, and prayer) - Reconnect (An interactive opportunity to share and support each other).
Contact me at the email listed at the bottom of this page and we'll discuss the details.
