Compassionate Counseling Training: A 2-Day Christian Counseling Course
OPEN TO ALL CHURCHES AT NO COST
You are invited to attend a free introduction course on compassionate counseling. We have identified this as foundational ground for becoming a Christian lay counselor. We hope that by the end of these training sessions you will understand the theology, heart, main areas of focus and practical skills needed to continue walking well alongside the hurting. In the wake of the wildfires on Maui, what has always been true feels even more apparent: people need support and people need Jesus. We hope you will join us in laying the foundation to competently and confidently identify and respond to what folks most need spiritually and emotionally. What a privilege it is to serve and we are thankful for you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.
WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?
This will be the foundational training for people interested in becoming lay counselors. But it is also for ‘Ohana Group leaders, care ministry leaders, pastors, prayer team, regular church members or attendees, volunteers, kids/students ministry leaders….anyone interested in learning more about having helpful conversations with people going through hard times.
