Pastoral Care Team Training

A big thank you for tonight's session at Windsor Park - really enjoyed it and learnt a lot.  You have a great presentation style, very easy to listen to and I loved the way you made it interactive!

Youth Worker Training

“We recently had Joel facilitate some training at our Youth Workers Meeting. It was invaluable. The content that Joel covered was pertinent to the expressed need. He has a terrific ability to see applications made to both self and work related arenas, allowing for personal and professional development. All those that attended regarded it as time well spent and had lots to say on things learnt. Joel’s materials are a huge resource to us as a collective working with young people. I am eager to have him do further training in the close future. He comes with my high recommendations.”
