Group Talk…Dealing with Discouragement

We all face discouragement from time to time.  And it comes in many forms from numerous angles in our lives and ministry.  The July GroupTalk will help each of us take a “check-up from the neck up” concerning discouragement.

Freedom from discouragement may be an elusive thing, but the feelings and emotions associated can be dealt with in real and tangible ways.  Ed Applegate, Pacific Regional Leader for the Small Group Network and Pastor of Spiritual Formation at Crossroads Grace Community Church in Manteca, CA, will be our guest.  Ed is described as “seriously smiley”.  Though he is almost always upbeat and… well… smiley, he, like so many of us, faces discouragement on a regular basis.

Ed will share with us his personal experiences facing discouragement and will share his multi-point strategy for combating and dealing with discouragement. 

This GroupTalk is specifically designed to bless you, the Small Group Ministry Leader.  We know that discouragement is a real issue for each of us in this ministry. Together we can fight this onslaught of the enemy and can stand victorious together.  This is truly a time when we are “Better Together”.  Don’t stand alone on this destructive issue.  Let’s walk together as we deal with discouragement.
