During September, Andrew will be away from church, seeking to develop and deepen his personal/ministry life. Firstly, he will head off to his Renewal Retreat Group for a time of seeking the Lord and meeting with 5 other Churches of Christ Ministers, seeking renewal, reflection, connection and a deeper walk with the Lord.
Then he will come home to spend 3 weeks working on a Bible college Masters level subject called Advanced Pastoral Relationships. The subject will cover approaches to ministry, Conflict, Team Building and Mentoring.
Throughout this time, Gary Blackford will be coming and preaching on a living community of hope.
