Tree of Life Seminar

This 6-day seminar is now available in the US and internationally! If your church or organization wants to be equipped to address current and underlying emotional, relation, and spiritual challenges by  encountering Jesus, this course is for you!

Previous participants shared:

 “My encounter with Jesus has changed my life and attitude. It has influences my thinking and perspective greatly. I give God the glory!”

“Connecting with Jesus was the most helpful part because I was able to forgive after a lifetime of bitterness. I am now free from that sorrow; I have peace and joy.”
