Redeeming Administration

Most of our jobs–whether we work for the church or in the business world–have some degree of administrative work involved in them.  We often talk about this aspect of our work with some distain: It takes us away from the work that we most want to be doing!  But opportunities for spiritual growth abound, even in the most unexpected of places.  Join us June 9-10, 2022 for this uplifting, and sure to be humorous, workshop!  Find out more and register here.
