Finding your PLACE in Life and Ministry

Registration is now CLOSED. Please contact Ginger McHenry if you are interested in future opportunities!
PLACE is a 4-week course exploring how God uniquely made you, facilitating insight into how he equips you to do the good he created you to do. It fosters better awareness of who you are in Christ and where God is leading you. The PLACE process guides you to grasp the ‘big picture’ for your life, so you can target where or how you can best do the good God created you to do.

Leader: Michaela Miller

The PLACE process involves:

  • Personality Discovery
  • Learning Spiritual Gifts
  • Abilities Awareness (Environment)
  • Connecting Passion with Ministry
  • Experiences in Life

With PLACE you can gain understanding of how spiritual gifts and abilities in certain environments complement your personality and connect you to your passion and life experiences. After the course, you have an option for a one on one coaching session to better understand your unique design and explore ways that best fit you to serve others.

Dates: Mondays from July 8, 15, 22, 29
Time: 6:30-8:30pm
Location: Willamette Christian Church – Aux Lobby
Additional information: Space is limited. No childcare is available for these events.

Josiane Niragire

Josiane Niragire is 24 years old and married with two children. She is the youngest of six children. Josiane attended school until Senior 4, when she left school to have her first child. Josiane’s mother passed away when she was very young, and this left the family in deep poverty. They often slept without dinner. This led Josiane to move to Kigali when she was old enough to work. She met and married her husband in Kigali. Today, he is unemployed. Her plan is to look for a job after mastering her sewing skills, so she can make a better life for herself.
