Community Leaders “MPowered” at Mercy Workshop
July 18, 2017
Last week, over fifty eager community leaders attended the MPower Workshop in Nashville, Tennessee, organized by the Mercy Multiplied Outreach team. Leaders from eight states, including pastors, lay ministers and nonprofit teams, were equipped with the knowledge and tools to serve as more effective helpers and ministers in their spheres of influence.
Melanie Wise, Director of Outreach, was excited to see the Lord work throughout the workshop. She said, “I am so passionate about the information that is presented at our MPower Workshops, but my hands-down favorite part of the workshops is to see how the Lord moves in ways that we could never plan!”
During the two-day MPower Workshop, attendees heard from Mercy Multiplied staff. Wise, along with Meredith Cleveland, Director of Counseling of the Nashville home, and Brooke Keels, Executive Director of Counseling, taught at the workshop. They shared the principles of freedom used in Mercy’s residential homes for over 30 years.
The sessions presented were: Helping Hurting People, Healthy Boundaries, Keys to Freedom, and Safeguarding Yourself, among others.
MPower Workshop attendees also had the opportunity to tour the Nashville Mercy home.
After the workshop, Wise said, “God never fails to speak personally into the attendees’ lives and move powerfully in ways that no one is expecting. It’s also awesome to watch how the attendees connect with one another, encourage one another, and speak into each other’s lives and ministries!”
Next week, Wise and Keels will travel to California to host an MPower Workshop in Rocklin, California (a suburb of Sacramento) on July 27-28. The sessions will be the same as the Nashville workshop and registration includes a training manual.
Registration ends July 21st! Register now for our upcoming MPower Workshop!
