Congregational Care Ministry Seminar in Lakewood KS
Congregational Care is critical in every local church and no one person can address all the hurt of a congregation or community. The Church of the Resurrection’s Congregational Care team invites you to join them April 19 – 21, 2018 for comprehensive training and networking with other local church leaders regarding congregational care best practices and standards. The Seminar is designed to train volunteers to become partners in ministry with pastors and staff to provide care for a congregation. Several years ago, Church of the Resurrection developed a program transforming the way care is provided for the congregation. The church equipped volunteers to be Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) and deployed them to work alongside pastors and staff to minister to and holistically care for the congregation. This partnership between lay and clergy has enabled Resurrection to provide a more consistent and deeper level of care to the church family. The ministry of Congregational Care is deliberate in connecting the church with people during difficult times. A Pre-Conference is offered Thursday, April 19 9:30-11:30am as an opportunity to dig deeper into particular topics. You may choose from 3 class options: How to Start a CCM Ministry, Ministry to the Aging Community or Depression, Anxiety and Addictions.

Super Early bird rate of $159 for the Seminar and $25 for the Pre-Conference is available through March 8. The regular registration fee is $199 for the Seminar and $35 for the Pre-Conference.
