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. Soon our Basic CCM training course will be added to our online courses.
Karen has authored two books:
Now available: New online courses to further your education in caring for your church congregation. Use these courses to provide ongoing education for your CCMs. We just rolled out our 4-course video series entitled "Caring for People in Crisis."
Coming soon: The full CCM Training Course to use in training your new staff and laity or to use as a refresher course for those who have already received the CCM Training.
The Caring Congregation's 2021 Spring National Webinar is coming up soon February 26-27. This live streamed 2-day event includes over 14 hours of content and covers the Basic CCM Model of Care Training to equip and inspire your church to revitalize your care ministry. This training includes live conversations with our National Team and is only offered twice a year. Registration is limited to the first 100 participants.
