Cheryl Clen from Australia (0700-0830)

Cheryl delights in exploring creative ways to go deeper into understanding the precious gift of a personal relationship with God. With a pastoral and educational background, she will be sharing with us from her experience and knowledge, practical ways to provide pastoral care, especially in times of people experiencing loss. As chaplain of her local company for over 15 years and currently the National Chaplain for GB Australia, Cheryl has been a part of GB since her own early days as a cadet and journeyed with many to see God’s transforming process in action.

Sharing her home with her much loved 15 year old, mischievous, Labradoodle dog, Cheryl is based in Sydney Australia.

What is the LEAD//FOLLOW webinar series?

LEAD//FOLLOW is a series of 10 monthly online equipping webinars for GB leaders and officers which will run from September 2020 to June 2021. Each webinar will be led by expert facilitators inside and outside the GB family and are free for GB leaders. The 90 min webinar will be held by Zoom and accessible to GB leaders to join live online.

Here’s some excellent feedback from our previous webinars:

Please note that spaces on each webinar is limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served space. Please only book if you’re able to attend.

If you’re a registered GB leader/officer, you can book online for this webinar here.

On the day, please ensure that you’re logged into the Zoom call ready for the meeting to begin about 5-10 minutes before. Zoom is a really easy piece of software to use. Here is how you can download the software to your computer in advance. It’s best to use it with a laptop with a webcam. We’d love to ‘see’ you!

Please contact home@gbworldwide.org if you have any problems.
