About this Course: Development & The Relationship Continuum

Development is all about relationship…because the Kingdom of God is about relationship. Your ministry will not lack resources when you focus on your relationships. Just as with people in love, relationships are on a continuum between the emotional and the sustainable. A relationship needs to be courted, managed, cared for, and strengthened. Knowing and acting on the stages of the Continuum is at the heart of helping people engage with your mission in meaningful ways.
