We asked Alex about the steps he took along the way that led him to attending the event …
“After looking into it more, I felt it could be beneficial! Attending Recent Grads was a much needed reminder on self care and making sure that I am ok while working in ministry. For me, it emphasized making sure you are healthy both mentally and physically.
It was great to connect with so many other DCEs as well! I had a lot of takeaways and, even weeks after Recent Graduates, I still find myself looking back at the sessions when I need them. The Recent Grads event was very beneficial to me, and I highly recommend it to those who are starting off in their ministry!”
