Abstract

All Christians are commanded and commissioned to make disciples. Whereas most believers minimize that imperative to merely making converts, discipleship is much more. Disciple-making involves cultivating a personal tutorial relationship wherein one individual teaches and trains another within his/her sphere of influence to impact and impart his/her realm of knowledge. This close personal mentoring is designed to stimulate an internalization and application of key concepts and principles that can be instrumental to the growth, development, and enhancement of the mentoree’s character, identity, and relational skills. This Webinar will explore ways in which to consider how coaches, counselors, and other caregivers can maximize their impact and influence among those around them in order to effectively teach and train future generations of Christian caregivers

Participants will:

  1. Discover the necessity of training future caregivers from a biblical worldview
  2. Understand and articulate key distinctions between mentoring and formal supervision
  3. Explore important aspects of how to cultivate supervisory relationships within their spheres of influence

Abstract

Every year, millions of people lead lives that are trapped in an addictive cycle of one form or another. These destructive patterns then become self-defeating strongholds that negatively impact not only the individual, but also marriages, families, churches and, in some cases, entire communities. This presentation will assist professional and ministry-related counselors in working with clients who struggle with addictions. Both therapeutic and theological implications will be discussed, including the addictive cycle, the keys to renewal, strategies for breaking free, the recovery process, and biblically-based transformation.

Participants will:

  1. Integrate a practical and theological perspective into understanding the nature of addiction and the six stages of the addictive cycle
  2. Develop biblically-sound and therapeutic strategies for assisting clients in breaking free from addictive strongholds
  3. Incorporate four keys related to recovery in the counseling process, along with the progressive steps of transformation and renewal
