Does your church or organization need a retreat where everyone can participate instead of lead? Are you hosting a conference and need a workshop leader on prayer practices, spiritual disciplines or the latest and greatest Christian book?  Would a class on planning or stewardship really help you move to the next level of ministry?

Let Openings staff plan and facilitate your next event.

Rev. Mary Beene has years of experience in church and nonprofit leadership and spiritual development.  She also has a background in experiential education that allows participants to do more than talk about an issue. Play a game, sing a song, do a craft and otherwise really experience an authentic transformation in your relationship with God.
