Ministry on Skid Row is a Spiritual Battle. Those who serve God are front line soldiers. At the Union Rescue Mission we have a top tier team of Chaplains working with the men in the Christian Life Discipleship Program. They are highly qualified and well educated. They are dedicated to the Lord, to the community of believers, and they love the men whom God has entrusted to their care.
This month Deed and Truth is investing in their on-going training to better equip them in their Kingdom Ministry as they serve to tear down Satan’s strongholds.
Deed and Truth is providing a very special opportunity to send four of our chaplains to attend the "Genesis Process" Training January 21-25 in Nevada. The Genesis Process combines Biblical, Psychological and Social sciences to better understand and serve the specific needs that are associated with individuals who have experienced significant trauma and the subsequent addictions that tend to accompany it.
Genesis counselor training seminars consist of five days (40 hours) of intensive, interactive, classroom style teaching, punctuated with individual and group exercises.
The seminar content targets strategies and techniques that have proven effectiveness. It is geared specifically for those who treat people that have a history of reoccurring self- destructive behavior. During the training each participant will go through the process themselves and will be given a comprehensive counselors manual to assist them after the training.
With Genesis Process training, professional and lay counselors alike will refine their skills, increase their effectiveness, and benefit from personal growth, along with their clients. The training is focused on practical tools and skills that really work to both heal the person and prevent relapse.
