VantagePoint3 to Resource You
VantagePoint3 is a ministry that helps adults discover more deeply who God is, who they are, and what God wants to do through them. VP3 partners with church leaders – as well as men and women in the marketplace, seminaries, and home – who are looking for a proven, integrated process to help them deepen and develop adults in Jesus’s name. In addition to their group guides, they regularly host meetings and post articles, like the one below, all centered around providing resources to help people develop in maturity.
