The Mentoring Collective is an evening event created so that no woman feels alone in the everyday struggles of life. We’ll offer a biblical perspective, practical tools, and honest conversation with those in your same season of life.

Cultivating Authentic Relationships
Thursday, Nov 10; 7-9pm | Bldg A Auditorium, Bee Cave
Childcare will be available.

We were created for relationship and community. But in the midst of busyness and life change, it can be hard to find your people. So how do we form and build authentic friendships? What’s the difference between transparency and vulnerability? How do we learn to let people in? Speaker Vivian Mabuni will open God’s Word and share from her life experience what it takes to cultivate authentic relationships. She’ll then direct you toward some honest conversation around the table with those in the same season of life. This is a don’t miss evening!

Registration coming soon!
