This two-day training is designed to prepare lay volunteers to work alongside pastors and staff to minister to and care for your congregation as Congregational Care Ministers. The training is based on Reverend Karen Lampe’s book, The Caring Congregation, which serves as a manual to guide pastors and churches to organize their congregations for care and equip people to listen, visit, comfort, and encourage congregants. Upon completion, volunteers will be equipped to provide care on behalf of the church. You will develop active listening skills and theologically appropriate responses, as well as be given Scripture suggestions for various situations.
