GOSPEL CARE SERIES: AUGUST 2021

LivingWay is offering a summer workshop series with the focus of leadership care - caring for the souls of our leaders. These workshops will be open to those who have formal leadership roles and anyone who feels compelled by the Spirit to receive equipping and soul care towards your vocation as ambassadors and priests. 

Workshop 1: Sunday, August 8
Jaslyn Dixon is the Gospel Care Director at Reality LA, Adjunct Professor at Talbot School of Theology, and Licensed Spiritual Director and MFT.
In this session, Jaslyn will be unpacking practical disciplines and tools for receiving and reflecting the love of Christ, which is gospel care. Some areas include recognizing where the Spirit is at work, what it means to have a ministry of presence, listening well and asking good questions, and an exploration of personal formation enabling us to grow in what it looks like to care and how to see from a gospel lens, where God is constantly at work.

Workshop 2: Sunday, August 15
Hanna Lee is the Director of Gospel Care at Tapestry LA and an MFT.
Henry Nouwen says “We all are wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The question is not “How can we hide our wounds?” but “How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?” When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, that is when we become wounded healers. In this session, Hanna will cover the mechanics of wounding and toxic shame and how to use our wounding in the service of others’ healing. We will also learn and practice Inner Healing tools that aim to connect others with God in a more intimate way. Inner Healing tools include replacing lies with truth, exchanging wounds and painful memories with emotional and spiritual healing, and addressing barriers to increase the experience of the fullness of God’s grace and love.

Workshop 3: Sunday, August 22
Led by LW pastors and leaders.
This will be a practical “lab”/“study aloud,” where multiple leaders/staff will engage with the same passage of Scripture and narrate aloud a range of ways in which to come before God’s presence and study and hear the Word of God. This session will offer concrete modeling and equipping for engaging in Scripture.

Each workshop will be in the Main Sanctuary from 2-3:30pm with a Q&A portion afterwards from 3:30-4pm. Childcare will also be available from 1:45-4:15pm.

There is a fee for the series: $25 for individuals, $40 for couples. To submit payment, click HERE and write memo: leadership series.

Registration is now open on the link above. Financial assistance is available to those in need (there is an option to let us know on the form). Deadline to register is August 5.
