The Church of the Resurrection is hosting a Congregational Care Ministry Seminar, April 27-29, at their main campus in Leawood, Kansas.
The CCM Seminar is designed to train volunteers to become partners in ministry with pastors and staff to provide care for a congregation. The Seminar consists of comprehensive training and networking with other local church leaders regarding congregational care best practices and standards, based on the resource developed by Executive Pastor Karen Lampe, The Caring Congregation. This resource serves as a manual to guide pastors and churches to organize their congregations for care and equip volunteers to listen, visit, comfort and encourage congregants.
With this training, volunteers will be empowered to make hospital visits, telephone persons in need of contact, meet one-on-one with persons in need of a listening ear, offer support to grieving families and proactively seek to encourage and care for persons in need.
Topics to be covered include: Prayer, Theology of Care, Boundaries, Listening, Visitation, Death and Grief and Organization.
New this year! Pre-Conference: Thursday, April 27 10am-12pm. Choose from one of two topics: Creating a Care Group or Depression, Anxiety and Addictions.
Registration is limited. Super Early bird rate of $140 for the Seminar and $25 for the Pre-Conference is available through February 15.
