Event description
Join the Southwestern Union for a Family Ministries Advisory featuring Bernie Anderson, Gerson Payan, Kris Bryant on Sunday, Nov 10.

About this Event

This year’s Family Ministries advisory will focus on some of the issues that threaten the very core of families. We will have presentations dealing with various addictions, such as pornography and its negative impact on both men and women. Also, other social challenges that have invaded today’s environment and how children have been and are impacted by the negative social issues that exist will be discussed. Trained counselors will be present to focus our attention on another very vital issue—mental health. Men, women and children alike are suffering from a little-talked about subject of depression and the increase of suicide among adults and children. The issues impacting families are many. We cannot focus on them all in the brief time we will have together but it is our prayer that we can address some of them and come away with some strategies to employ in our local communities where our churches are located.

The Family Ministries advisory will be more than information giving; it will be focused via a panel and round table discussion as to how the church can effectively minister to those not only in the church but in the local communities that the church serves, amid the prevailing challenges that plague our world.

Our guest presenters and panelists will include:

Bernie Anderson, M.DIV.

Gerson Payan, MA, LPC

Cheryl Foster, MSSW, LCSW

Willie S. Lee, M.Div., D.Min.

Wilma Kirk-Lee, MSSW

Kris Bryant, MA, LPC

The advisory is open to all local conference Family, Women’s, and Children’s Ministries Directors, local church Family Ministries Coordinators and any who have a passion and interest in Family Ministries.

There is no fee for attending the Family Ministries Advisory. Registration is required for us to determine the number of persons in attendance for the lunch that will be provided.
