Join pastors and church leaders from around the country for a training experience in Cancer Care Ministry. This workshop will equip you with the knowledge and tools to return to your church and train members of your congregation to effectively minister to individuals and families living with cancer.
The goal of this training is to enable you to train and lead lay ministers to provide individualized spiritual, emotional and practical support to cancer patients and their families, not to start a support group in your church for cancer patients.
Day 1: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm (Eastern Time)
Day 2: 8:30 am - 1:00 pm
