Through witness talks, understand how the Lord has a plan for each one of us; a mission that only we can fulfill
Learn about how building a relationship with Jesus helps each one of us find our calling and plan for our future

Understand how the apostles were led to live a life in the Holy Spirit and the importance of living united with the Spirit in order to be empowered as God's leaders and community builders
