The Center of Addiction & Faith - Addiction Ministry Training
The need for addiction ministry has never been more urgent than during this pandemic and racial tension. Isolation, anxiety and increased symptoms of depression and other mental health illnesses are prevalent for many. Liquor sales have skyrocketed, domestic violence is on the rise, overdoses are spiking, and so are suicides.
Transfiguration Lutheran Church in Bloomington, MN. and the Center of Addiction & Faith have enlisted Faith Partners to provide a two-part Zoom leadership training for congregational leaders. We will help you start and sustain a congregational addiction team ministry to better respond to this crisis.
Faith Partners Leadership Training will help pastors and leaders build an effective model for ministry custom designed for their setting and needs. You will be equipped with all the tools and strategies to build congregational support for this lay team ministry.
Bring 2 to 4 congregational leaders to the training. We recommend at least one pastor be involved in the initial training. Lay leaders will initiate and sustain this ministry in your congregation.
When? Two consecutive Wednesdays, July 29th, 2020 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. and August 5th, 2020 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Where? In the comfort of your own home or office – just register and get the Zoom Meeting Access Information.
Costs? The Leadership Training fee is $125/congregation and includes the training, toolkit ($50 value), set of three ministry guides, handouts and power point presentation.
For more information and/or to register; please contact Drew Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 512-417-2307.
