“Based on the changes we have made from your Base Camp training, we have seen these improvements this year over last year: 33% more volunteers, 106% more baptisms, 310% increase in our connection pathway attendance, and an increase of 369% in new members! It has been quite the whirlwind of a year for sure and we are so thankful for the training and insight you gave.”
