|July 2012 Living Free Faculty Training||
|By gkeylon | 1 Aug 2012 ||
On July 23rd and 24th, 2012, we were honored to host 20 ministry leaders for Living Free Faculty Training. More than half of those attending are either currently involved in a community-based Living Free ministry model called Lifeline Connection or have interest in starting a Lifeline Connection ministry. There were ministries represented from Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia. We are so excited to see the growth and interest of men and women being called by God to reach the addicted of their communities with the love of Christ.
When asked what was learned in the training, one individual said, “I learned there is a great need within the church to take care of hurting people before those people can truly help people outside of the church.” What a powerful statement. Hurt people can become more effective helpers when they are healthier themselves.
We had a great time of fellowship as everyone learned how to teach and schedule the Living Free seminar. All those who teach the Living Free DVD training to people in churches other than their home church are required to become certified Living Free faculty members. Many of the training attendees are in the process of becoming certified Living Free faculty.
