Scripture says “two are better than one.” Yet we who plan and lead worship often find ourselves alone in the task. This webinar explores the benefits of mentoring relationships in worship planning and leading and discusses several effective methods for developing mentoring relationships.
Joy Engelsman, preacher, pianist, event planner, and theologian has blogged and written articles on worship and brings more than 35 years of experience and training to this webinar. Joy invites your feedback or questions by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
