Professional Supports and Services…
In a culture where rapid change is normalised, we at “Reflective Presence” offer a comprehensive, post-modern, innovative approach to forge methods, models, practices, and resources for rural, urban, and interfaith ministry that are sustainable, life-giving, and reflective of our fullest humanity. We offer a cutting-edge, new, ecclesial management style for faith communities.
