Learning from the past. Making the most of the present. Strategizing for the future. Sounds like valuable goals for personal growth, but am I seeing my professional development in the same way? What about the bigger picture? Do I feel fully equipped? Am I convinced of the value of my role? Plan to attend this one-day training event on April 24, 2020. You will be encouraged, challenged, and refreshed as you reflect on your own journey, gain valuable resources, and network with other spiritual counselors and chaplains.
