Ministry from the Heart with The Rev. Martin Smith

In these three sessions, Martin Smith will help us explore the relationship between our experience of intimacy with God and our call to service, outreach and evangelism. Our outgoing lives as Christians can become a set of tasks unless we can experience for ourselves the grace and presence of God as the source of our motivation. Join us for a conversation about the ‘mystical core’ of ministry.
