Ever wonder why so many efforts by pastors and lay leaders fail to help an individual or a whole congregation follow through on a commitment they say they want to make?
Rev. Greg Hunt is willing to facilitate a mapping exercise from the book IMMUNITY TO CHANGE in August. We are working on a day and time that might work for most and, when we do, we will post that here. In the meantime, watch the short video from one of the authors. If your curiosity is roused, borrow or buy and read the book. Then, if you'd like to actually like to learn how to put it to work, send a short email to Jessica indicating your interest in a workshop with Dr. Hunt.
