Event description
Join us as we examine realities facing the urban church, including poverty, race, violence, trauma, and brokenness in the family.

About this Event

Ministry in an urban context can be complex and challenging. Pastors, ministry leaders and churches face a wide range of issues and circumstances, many involving some form of trauma. Engaging these issues well requires thoughfulness, humility and a willingness to engage our stories.

At this CIFT Ministry Training, facilitated by Wendell Moss, we will explore why stories matter, engaging our own trauma histories as well as the collective trauma of our communities. We will examine certain realities facing the urban church, including poverty, race, violence and brokenness within the family. We will pursue what it meansto lead, care and connect well. All with the goal of empowering the Church to embrace its role as one of the most important places for healing.

The day will include teaching, story-telling, group discussion, and breakout sessions on a variety of topics. Our hope is to create a space for conversation, opening the door to deeper, richer, more meaning-filled dialogue within our churches and communities. Join us as we identity the needs and resources, celebrate where God is at work, create and dream, and pursue ways in which we can better partner with God and one another in the work and ministry before us.
