2018 Workshop

Evangelism & Outreach: Becoming Trauma Informed – Have More Successful Transformations


Trauma is surrounding most of our cities. Experienced in nearly every home. How does it play a part in outreach and evangelism?

In this workshop you will become trauma informed and learn how to experience more successful transformations! We’ll identify unique challenges in working with those who’ve experienced traumatic experiences.

Together we'll answer such questions as: What is secondary trauma? Is it possible to heal a heart that won’t trust anyone? Is this a way to reach an entire generation? Even more - can this break generational cycles?

Trauma is more than an event. It's effects last far beyond the day of the occurrence. From physical to psychological and even spiritual responses the individuals and families we are reaching out to may be living these effects for years.

In this workshop we will increase our awareness in identifying a trauma story, unfolding it's impact in the lives of those we reach, learn how to offer practical tools for those still overwhelmed by their traumatic experiences and much more.
