Ministry in the Trenches: Trauma-Informed Ministry in Urban Oakland
March 14 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pmFree
As pastors and community leaders, what do we do when trauma just looks like our lives?
Many groups across the country are pushing for trauma-informed ministry: serving from a perspective that acknowledges the impact of trauma. However, not all traumas and contexts are equal. This one-day workshop is designed to equip and empower local Christian leaders in Oakland and the greater Bay Area to serve communities impacted by repeated, systemic trauma (including community violence and the results of systemic inequality).
Attendees will learn to understand, recognize, and respond to trauma. In continuation of the emphasis on equipping and empowerment, this workshop will be followed by opportunities and additional resources to further develop trauma knowledge as well as develop local connections with other leaders and appropriate public services.
A light continental breakfast and lunch will be provided for attendees.
