Member Care Consultation & Training Canada

YWAM Nexia Member Care Consultation & Training - Banff, Alberta, Canada - June 5-10th, 2011
YWAM Nexia is hosting a Member Care Consultation and Training in Banff from June 5th to 10th, 2011. It begins with a 3-day Consultation to share what is being done in Canada in member care within YWAM and in other organizations, to assess member care needs at your ministry location, and to share ideas for sharing of resources and moving forward in member care in Canada. It will be followed by a 2-day Training to learn more in-depth concepts and tools for handling member care at your location. The medium will be teaching, interviewing, small group workgroups and discussions. You can choose to be part of just the Consultation or just the Training but we highly recommend that you attend both the Consultation and the Training.
·         Introduction and Overview of Member Care; Attrition; Setting Up Pastoral Care Structures; Why Do Member Care Providers Burn out if they Know about Burnout?; Self-Care for Member Care Providers and CEOs/Leaders; Accountability; How do we help staff maintain purity?

Special Guest Speaker
We have invited Brenda Bosch, an international member care trainer, to facilitate the Consultation and Training. Brenda has been in full-time Christian ministry for 30 years, of which at least 22 years were spent in cross-cultural work. 18 years of these were spent on Member Care – either looking after global workers, teaching on Member Care, or both. Brenda has conducted a one-month Member Care Course in various countries and for various agencies, including YWAM.

Brenda will also share with us some of the results of a survey she did with 2,000+ global workers for her doctoral thesis, which show some of the stressors they face, care they would like, what would refresh them, and what topics they feel are vital for Member Care Providers.

We are looking forward to this time together to share our thoughts, ideas and resources.
