Prayer Ministry Training: Exercising a Credible & Compassionate Prayer Ministry

Led by members of the Acorn Team - we will be examining the Biblical foundations of drawing others into the presence of God through prayer ministry, as well as establishing a clear understanding of personal and ministry boundaries.

There will be time to work in small groups and assess real life ministry scenarios.
