Our Council

The Authentic Ministry Council is a trusted (and growing) group of collaborators who share values of mutual dignity and respect. Co-creating a world in which all voices are respected, our council seeks to make decisions by consensus and address conflicts as opportunities to deepen personal understanding and interpersonal relationships.
