This workshop hopes to empower and enhance the relational skills you already have, and/ or is currently acquiring. This workshop will highlight how and why we should tap in to ‘move with the times’, and the importance of meeting our young people where they are in terms of ever-changing trends, lingos, social platforms, and music; using it to our advantage as a momentous key relational ministry skill.
