To maximize the effectiveness of our training, whether online or in-person, we recommend all participants obtain copies of two books co-authored by Karen Lampe and Melissa Collier Gepford: The Caring Congregation Ministry: Implementation Guide and The Caring Congregation Ministry: Care Minister's Manual. Available for purchase from the links below, these books will provide access to all the details and forms needed to establish your care ministry. Additional resources discussed in our training, but not contained in these two books, are listed below under Additional Training Resources and may be downloaded and printed. We also recommend you purchase a printed set of Care Cards and Anointing Vials for use by your Congregational Care Ministers CCMS in caring out their ministry after training (links to suppliers provided below).
Webinar registrants will receive an email invitation to set up a private account to gain access to our "digital" materials and handouts. Once you set up your account, return here and click on the "For Registrants Only" button, type in your email and password, and then you can view/download these resources and find links to everything you will need to be prepared for your upcoming training.
