    OFFERS:

    Ministry To Communities

    Outreach strategy to impact the entire community

    A small group strategy for impacting the entire community by assisting other churches and individuals in the community in ministering to people with life controlling problems. This often starts with individuals in the legal system and their families that live in the community. And since life controlling problems impact more than just one individual or one family, there is a great need for ministry to the entire community. For information on how to minister to your community or to schedule a training at your church please email us at: info@connectionpoints.org. or call 833.217.7455.

    Ministry To Churches

    Workshops and Seminars

    Workshops available on: Addiction, Assimilation, Discipleship, Leadership, Small Groups, Substance Abuse, and how to help people with Life Controlling Problems.

    For information on each of these workshops or to schedule a workshop in your church please email us at: info@connectionpoints.org. or call 833.217.7455.
