Year Programme Participant

The Year Programme GSM is a 10-month training designed for individuals to grow in their relationship with God and their identity in Christ. We want each participant to be shaped and inspired to be the person God has made them to be. We aim to provide tools for participants to grow in their relationship with God. We will walk with them as they wrestle, learn, do, and grow. At the end of the programme, we hope each participant will be able to contribute to our VCJF vision.
