I want to thank you personally for the incredible training that you offered our life group leaders. I believe this will add years of effectiveness and tenure to our leadership core because they have been equipped to minister to those walking through seasons of grief. I would recommend this to anyone or any pastor who is trying to build a team of caregivers around themselves. I believe your ministry will help change the stigma in the years to come that the church is not equipped or unable to minister to people walking through grief. I so appreciate ministries outside the church that support the church.
Denny Nissley and I were talking last weekend at the CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management) training. After taking both courses in less than a month, we came to the conclusion that he should ask for your permission to recommend to those who take his CISM training in this region to follow up his training by having you come and train in grief counseling. I find these courses to work hand-in-hand. I hope that works out because you truly have a ministry of equipping God’s people for every good work. Why? So that people may see HIS light through us and give glory to our God in Heaven (Matthew 5:16).
