Share Your Story

At the end of his presentation, Dale invited you to share stories of how God has been at work in your life and in your relationships in the church through the Year of Authentic Community. Hearing each other’s stories of transformation, healing, and reconciliation builds up the body of Christ and gives us all the opportunity to praise God for His gracious work in our lives.
