How Darryl helps churches:
Darryl desires to assist you as you plan your next steps in your ministry with Sunday School, discipleship, small groups, and boomers and builders (senior adults). Consultations, training, events, and my blogs are ways he may be able to help. Consultations are conversations designed to help you move forward in your plans. They involve listening, questions, and coaching. For your convenience, consultations can be in person, on the phone or Zoom, by email or text, and even through social media. Training often begins with a consultation in order to customize the training to your needs. For your convenience, training can be provided in person at your church, at a shared location (such as the associational office), or on Zoom. When scheduling your training event, consider a day/time when you will best be able to gather your people, and we will work to find a date that will work. Typically events are statewide, regional, or associational. Events may include a statewide tour where content is delivered to multiple locations. An example of an event is EQUIP which provides training in a dozen ministry areas to multiple locations across Kentucky.
