Here’s what attendees have said about Rev. Greg’s Board Essentials workshop:

This workshop provided opportunities to reflect in a creative manner… loved it! 

 All very helpful and reinforced my understanding of my role as minister. Even if I attended the same training program again, I would learn more. When you drive 8 hours round trip to Sheboygan, Wisconsin for a 7-hour Workshop, but the presenter Greg Coles is so amazing that departing at 4:30 a.m. and returning at 8:30 p.m. is worth it. – Heather Larson, Board VP, Unity of Eau Claire WI, Oct 2019

A real “must have” workshop for any new or developing board. – Unity of Medina OH, Dec 2019

Thought provoking and needed by most boards to work together as a cohesive unit. – Unity of Medina OH, Dec 2019

It was exactly what we needed… Knowing roles and responsibilities is an integral part of effective serving. – Unity of Medina OH, Dec 2019

One of the most direct, useful, and thought provoking workshops I have ever attended.—Unity of Traverse City MI, March 2021 As a minister, I believe the straightforwardness offered when discussing problems and conflicts that can occur at a church was invaluable. The way in which Greg connected Unity principles to tough decisions was powerful and enlightening for the group. - Unity of Traverse City MI March 2021
