WHAT PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING
I go to workshops, I come home with one or two usable ideas. I went to PLAN-IT… everything was usable!
Better planning, planning further ahead results in more face time with kids!
I am walking away with a calendar. I have a plan for a whole year!
PLAN-IT removes a lot of guilt. I’m able to see everything in advance and set priorities.
It was really nice to do the task of planning alongside my peers.
This is one of the most strategic, supportive and helpful times for me to have my pastor with me!
