Define Your POTENTIAL (Seeking The Truth)

We’ve all heard how we should reach for our “true potential”...but we do so too often without defining it. We give the idea lip service and little more. 

But what truly does potential mean...for YOU? Is it measured by income, or professional or social status? Is it always sitting in the front row at church? Is it becoming a champion in sports? In this intensive three-hour workshop, you’ll learn to define your potential in character-based terms, come to understand your God-given temperament, and take positive steps to identifying—and moving toward— your mission and purpose.

Learn More about Immaculée...

Immaculée Ilibagiza

Immaculée Ilibagiza  survived the 1994 Rwandan Genocide that took the lives of nearly a million people, including her parents and two brothers. She did so by hiding with seven other women for 91 days in a 3- by 4-foot bathroom. During this unimaginable suffering, Immaculée taught herself English and found her faith. Prayer transformed her life from fear to courage, hatred to love, and gave her the ability to forgive those who murdered her family. Captured in her New York Times best-selling book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Genocide, the story of how she overcame her deep anger and was able to forgive the people who killed her family is both inspiring and unforgettable.
