Want to learn to care for people who are grieving and reach out to others in a distinctively Christian way? On Saturday, November 5, 2016, Faith Promise will host a Stephen Ministry Workshop from 9 am to 1 pm in Satellite 1 at Pellissippi Campus. The half-day workshop is designed both to enhance participants’ caregiving skills and to help expand our caring ministry.
One reason we’re so excited about helping other churches learn about Stephen Ministry is that it is making a significant difference in the life of Faith Promise. Since we began Stephen Ministry in 2012, approximately 90 laypeople have gone through 50 hours of training in order to provide quality one-to-one Christian care to hurting people. If you think you might be interested in being a Stephen Minister, attending the workshop is a great way to learn more. Our Stephen Ministry training begins in January 2017.
Members of Faith Promise are invited to attend the workshop free of charge. If you would like to attend, please contact Laurie Piepho at 865-591-1301 or by email at [email protected]. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity for personal growth and to learn more about Stephen Ministry.
