Unlocking Your True Potential

How is God calling you to use your gifts today? How can you not only discern your current mission, but determine and communicate clear and actionable steps to live it out? In this GIVEN Academy session, Margarita Pineda-Ucero will help participants identify where they are now and where they want to go, with special emphasis on how to create an “Action Plan,” a specific new initiative with concrete steps. This session will also include an introduction from Rachel Ullmann on changes to the 2022 Forum Application and expectations for Action Plan Proposals.
