I have experienced the Reflection and Prayer Training as a participant and have also been on team as a Facilitator. I learned more than I could begin to list in this space and I just encourage anyone who can take the time off to take part in this training. I guarantee you come home totally prepared to fully present any of the twelve topics that Dr. Davis has prepared. Every single word on each page is even "copypright perfect" so that not only you, but the churches and places you present to, can use the materials you receive. You bring home everything you need to be able to step out and do this. The topics are just rich - everything from how to be a servant leader to how to find a rhythm of rest....It's no surprise that a large percentage of participants go ahead and return to be on team....time and again. I will be on board for my second time as Facilitator in October of '08 and can't wait! There is usually scholarship help available for funding and Evelyn Davis is just a wonderful woman.
