Trauma-Informed Care Workshop Available Feb. 24

by | Jan 31, 2022 | Facilities, Leadership, News, Team Development

God is moving and care ministry is transforming how the local church is doing ministry and outreach. And yet, two years of Covid has sucked the excitement out of a lot of things.  

This is trauma. It can cast a shadow over every experience. And every one of us has had something unexpectedly taken away from us these past two years (some multiple times). It can be easy to get excited to see God move, yet still remain apprehensive at the same time.

But knowing that this is a trauma response, we should approach the year with faith, with hopeful expectations. And to start, you can learn how to care for yourselves and your community who have experienced trauma.

Hope Made Strong is hosting a workshop day, Trauma-Informed Care for the Faith Community.

On February 24th, we are going to hear from Rev. Sanghoon Yoo, a pastor and social worker who specializes in helping churches become trauma-informed and create safe spaces.  

At 8 pm EST Sanghoon will offer a 1-hour live workshop introducing “How to build a safe, healthy and trauma-informed church community.” Sanghoon will demonstrate strategic and effective ways to construct an authentic and caring system at church.

Laura Howe will also offer a 1-hour live workshop at 6 pm EST on “How to recognize signs and symptoms of burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma, and how each is different from the other, as well as prevention strategies for both yourself and your team.” 


Registration to the workshop gives you lifetime access to the recorded sessions, and you’ll receive a curated list of trauma resources.

Preaching to Personas (why you can’t preach to everyone)

Jesus, in His earthly ministry, couldn’t preach to everyone; so, He practiced preaching to personas. He knew His local audience! And then, what He said reached a greater audience.  Can you preach to everyone? No. You need to know your local audience, get their...
