I left very energized and felt this was what God had wanted me to do for my personal spiritual growth. The information and handouts make it so I can take this program back to our church and adapt and modify to fit the needs of our congregation. Thank you for such a well developed and well presented program.

-Carol J. (Bettendorf, IA)


Our first group of Congregational Care Ministers completed training in July and have already become deeply engaged in their ministry. The materials you have developed were excellent and easily adapted to fit our setting. CCM provides a way to invite others into leadership, to gain a deeper understanding of the call to care for one another, and to serve in a way that intersects with their gifts and the congregation's needs.

-Pastor Linda (St. Louis, MO)


I just wanted to take a moment thank you for the WONDERFUL conference. I came away refreshed and energized. I found much of the information valuable and usable. Thank you for your ministry!

-Pastor Jan (Pratt, KS)


The three laity that I brought to CCM training won't keep quiet 🙂 They are thrilled with the experience and the opportunity to implement what we learned. The process is very applicable in our much smaller context; it is also desperately needed. I am the only pastor with approximately 300 active members and the laity were reluctant to believe they could share in the care-giving ministry until they experienced the CCM workshop at Church of the Resurrection.

-Pastor Kenny (Great Bend, KS)


We were greeted with warmth and hospitality and quickly found that the staff and volunteers at the Church of the Resurrection were equipped to share practical tools that could be adapted for use in our ministry setting. The initial training we received at the seminar became the catalyst for helping us to identify a path that is leading to implementation of our own version of Congregational Care Ministry. We feel good about what we are doing and are thankful for the witness and resourcing we received to get us started. I believe that churches of any size can benefit from this excellent training.

-Pastor Emily (Memphis, TN)
