HeRE I Am Lord, The Caring Congregation Workshop

Due to the resent affects of COVID-19 virus we have redesigned the event to be a virtual workshop

  • Friday, July 24, 2020, 8:30 AM- 4:30 PM
  • Saturday, July 25, 2020, 8:30 AM- 4:30 PM

Congregational Care, for both clergy and lay members, can be daunting.  The needs are many and varied and can be overwhelming.  Nationally renowned expert, Rev. Karen Lampe, will lead a 2-day Congregational Care Ministry Virtual Workshop that will teach churches how to organize their care ministries and train participants to provide compassionate care for people experiencing a variety of life crises. 


Rev. Karen Lampe served as the Executive Pastor for Congregational Care at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, for twelve years.  Serving alongside Rev. Adam Hamilton, she created a model of care that empowered lay people to become Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) who work alongside their pastors.  Karen has authored two books and has taught this model of care to churches throughout the U.S.  She believes that no matter what size the church, "care" is the heart of the church and when you can do this part of church well it draws people to your faith community.  Her enthusiasm for the CCM program is contagious as she calls everyone to use the experiences of their lives to build the kingdom.  Explore more information at www.thecaringcongregation.com.


Cost of the training is $50 and includes: A private link to the workshop, Leader resources, opening worship each day, 8 recorded sessions, break out session for churches, live Q & A with Karen Lampe and a live closing commissioning service.  Plus, workbook, worksheets which will be mailed to each registered participant prior to the workshop.
