It affects millions of US teenagers every year, and yet many churches have not yet been equipped to address this crisis. That is why the Center for Ministry and Faith in Women have partnered together to introduce church leaders to evidence-based resources designed to help youth recognize the difference between caring, supportive relationships and abusive, manipulative ones.
Facilitated by the Rev. Dawn Flowers, senior pastor of Parkway Hills United Methodist Church, this educational event will prepare faith leaders to engage teenagers around subjects like defining caring relationships, respecting our own and others' bodies, understanding abuse, helping friends, communicating well, and addressing their anger effectively. The Center for Ministry and Faith in Women have partnered to not only introduce lay and clergy faith leaders to this curriculum, but also to enhance these resources with additional faith-based components developed by Rev. Elizabeth Henry, Pastor to Children and Families at Galloway United Methodist Church in Jackson, MS.
The Business Advantage Program for Professionals is a certificate course designed to give working professionals an exciting and comprehensive exposure to the most essential business topics.
