Our Training Materials
The approach to caring stipulated in the Bible is the subject of our acclaimed Faith Fundamentals training (10-part series).
Our training is presented in five modules. Each of the first ten lessons includes a training guide, leader tool (aka, facilitator guide), and other support resources (e.g., additional care insights, an Inspire video, links to YouTube videos).
The lessons and core biblical principles are applicable to all caring relationships, regardless of the particular situations and struggles people are facing.
The charts below provide a snapshot of the modules and lessons.
TESTIMONIAL: Having personally suffered a significant loss, I could write a book on all things people do and say that are more hurtful than helpful! Caring is about loving one another, not simply following lists of things "to do" and what not to say. Whether a pastor, church leader, or member of a congregation, EVERY Christian really needs to know and understand the biblical teachings and embrace the core biblical principles included in your Faith Fundamentals training series!
The first lesson helps people reimagine care based on a biblical narrative and distinguish between secular expression of care and those that are distinctly Christian.
These three lessons focus on reframing care and shoring up God’s plan of care from a theological construct.
These three lessons focus on retooling the ways people show compassion and establishing new competencies.
These three lessons concentrate on reinforcing key spiritual disciplines and bolstering people’s confidence to flex their spiritual muscles.
These two training guides supplement the Faith Fundamentals series and share information and insights specific to the care setting. Rather than devoting class time to discussing these lessons, once people complete the first four Modules, you might share the Module E training guides and ask folks to contact you with questions.
