Good Soil Mini-Basic in Local Churches

We call our “out-there” (in local churches) seminars, “Good Soil Mini-Basic” because time constraints prohibit us from offering the full 14 hours of seminar content and learning experiences. The available time-slots in our schedules for these seminars are limited, so we must request a solid commitment from the host church before scheduling these seminars.
