Men's Ministry: Leadership in the Midst of Crisis

3/7/2014

Often times in ministry we find ourselves in the midst of crisis situations, a recent death, people in trauma, or even hostile situations. The title of leader means nothing but the abiltiy to lead means everything. We will discuss the practical ways to access a situation, to earn the trust of those involved, how to discern if you are to lead or follow and how to minister and influence without disrespecting those in charge. Co-presented with Kevin Lee.

Men's Ministry: Men in Grief - Somebody Do Something!

3/8/2014

Men are different! Especially when it comes to grief. Death, divorce, unemployment, trauma all result in loss that cause some men to struggle. Many men live by the mantra "I just need to handle this on my own", but the truth is, we are not designed to walk this road alone. There are men in desperate need of someone to help them without emasculating them.

We will look at how to help men identify their loss and embrace their own grief process. When to step in and when to step aside. Most men don't know what they need and no two men ever seem to need the same thing. We will be discussing the need and how to meet it.

Co-presented with Kevin Lee.
