About the Unity Expansion Leaders Network
The intention of this network for expansion ministry leaders is to:
- Offer a way for expansion ministry leaders to connect with one another
- Share what’s working, what’s not
- Ask for ideas or support with a particular challenge
- Connect with a mentor/coach, or offer to serve another expansion leader as a mentor/coach for a particular need.
- Be an informal, yet creative and vibrant resource for expansion leaders at any point on their journey
For more information contact Rev Steve Colladay, Expansion Coordinator, at Steve@unity.org or 816.434.6866.
