Jesus was a healer. His example calls us to provide care and support for one another through the peaks and valleys of our lives.
The Caring Congregation (TCC) offers guidance on the best Christian practices to help people move through life’s challenges. Our method of care is based on a team approach that empowers both pastors and laity (serving as Congregational Care Ministers or CCMs) working together to support the congregation and community.
Reverend Karen Lampe, along with Senior Pastor Rev. Adam Hamilton, church staff and the Congregational Care Ministers (CCM) at Church of the Resurrection, created and implemented this method of care for churches of all sizes to create a community of hope and assurance in our complex world.
Through speaking engagements, webinars, online courses, and private consultation, Rev. Lampe and the national team of seminar leaders and consultants provide capable, adaptable, and scalable guidance. We provide two-day seminars and webinars based on Rev. Lampe's books for churches, pastors, and conferences to help empower laity and organize their care ministries. We have recently launched our e-learning courses for use in providing ongoing training for your care ministry team. In June 2021 our Basic CCM training course will be added to our online courses and our new podcast series has begun! Exciting things happening in this ministry!
Karen has authored four books:
