We live in a fallen world where sin abounds. We have all either wrestled with the consequences of our own sinfulness or the consequences of the sinfulness of others. Though it is often easier to sweep our hurts under a proverbial rug, the Bible commands us to bear one another’s burdens. Sometimes we disobey this command due to our own pride. Sometimes we disobey this command because we feel ill-equipped to help.

This initial Trauma Healing Equipping session is designed to equip believers to learn the basic biblical and mental health principles related to trauma care. Trauma care is needed for anyone who has experienced the effects of sin. For example, a job loss, the death of a loved one, a divorce, or a global pandemic all count as a traumatic experience. So, too, do financial hardships or health concerns.

This biblically based program will help the student bring their laments to God so they can experience God’s love as found in Christ, as well as to experience healing, restoration, and reconciliation with God and neighbor. More than that, the student will be equipped to help others experience God’s love. The goal at FBCTLH is to become an intentional place of healing as we learn how to bear one another’s burdens and point one another to find and follow Jesus.

This initial equipping class is the beginning of a three-step certification process that includes an evaluation of the student, co-leading two healing groups, and to become a trauma healing group facilitator. Those attending this class from FBCTLH will form a core group of intentional disciple-makers who seek to help one another in the toughest seasons of life. Please note that you must attend the entire weekend session.

Will you join us as we seek to obey Jesus’ command to make disciples and bear one another’s burdens?
