As you build your community, you must stay focused on what your intent is behind having a community. Growing as a person—professionally, personally, and spiritually—will require the support and insight of others if you truly wish to change and develop. But because this is such a personal journey, the makeup of your community will largely depend on what makes you tick.
Are there certain types of people or roles within your community that should be filled in order for you to experience growth through community? How do you find those people? How can you be a mutually beneficial community member to someone else?
On this episode, Rev. Dr. Nicole Martin, Senior Vice President of Ministry Impact at American Bible Society, talks about what community has meant to her throughout her life, and why community has the potential to give you a powerful, unshakable confidence.
