Senior Pastor Rev. Jeff Gannon |

The Enneagram is an ancient tool which helps persons become more self-aware of how their personality and spirituality interact and how that impacts those around them. The Enneagram is based on the idea we are each born with a given personality type (1 through 9) and under stress or growth, nuances of our personality emerge. If you would like a method for spiritual, emotional, and relational growth, this class is something you ought to seriously consider. Pastor Jeff has been teaching the Enneagram since the late 80s.
