Key Ministry Webinar Description:
The Impact of Trauma During Stay-At-Home Orders
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?
