Candidacy Summit

You come to this time in your life to focus on your place in the ministry of all believers.

Slowing down, making time for reflection and prayer, practicing how to listen with both your heart

and your head: these are some of the ways you will be invited to understand better who you are 

and who God is calling you to be. (Answering the Call, Candidacy Guidebook, pg 12)
