Congregational Care Ministry Seminar
As the Congregational Care Ministry team at The Church of the Resurrection, we want to let you know about an important training event being held at our Leawood, KS campus on April 27-29 and invite you to prayerfully consider recommending this training to churches in your District. The Congregational Care Ministry Seminar is designed to train volunteers to become partners in ministry with pastors and staff to provide care for a congregation.
Several years ago at Church of the Resurrection, we developed a program revolutionizing the way that we provide care for our congregation. We equipped volunteers to be Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) and deployed them to work alongside pastors and staff to minister to and holistically care for our congregation. This partnership between lay and clergy has enabled us to provide a more consistent and deeper level of care to our church family.
The CCM 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.
New this year is a Pre-Conference, Thursday, April 27 10am-12pm with two topics offered: 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.
