The Brain and Planning in the Church

This workshop shares how current brain research informs our planning for education, community service, outreach and worship. How does our brain wire and what does that tell us about the people we face in our pews, our classrooms and our families homes? How do you get and keep attention? And how can we keep current with the brain research with limited time?
