Designing and Building Programs and Ministries that Work and have Impact | Dr. Joan speaks with Dr. Jacqueline King Part 1

In every aspect of life, the season of training and preparation is often a challenging one. During this season, we all need someone to lean on, someone who sees greatness in us and offers mentorship. There is a mentorship gap in the Black community, and to achieve our goals and build effective systems, we must be able to mentor and be mentored. The Black community needs to empower, and support each other and create a thriving community where each person fulfills their purpose.
