Workshop Description: Trauma Informed Church Ministries

Understanding the effects of childhood abuse is essential in ministering to both churches and communities. This session will address the following questions:

  • How do we reconcile the research on the physical and behavioral effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) with a Wesleyan understanding of Hamartiology?

  • How can we encourage spiritual growth without creating additional shame and feelings of worthlessness?

  • How can survival coping mechanisms be distinguished from conscious choices?

  • How can understanding the neurobiology of trauma and trauma-informed care lead to the abundant life Jesus intended for every person?

  • How can the spiritual strength of survivors enrich churches and communities?
