Take discernment seriously. Invite with great intentionality.

Volunteers and passive invitations lead to frustration and lack of buy-in. You need people who will internalize the mission as their personal apostolate. People the Lord has already chosen. This course, combined with our coaching, will guide you to find those the Lord has chosen and to offer them a clear invitation into mission via a REACH MORE Training Group.
