C.A.R.E. Training Classes

2019 Classes - Monday Nights

Presented by Pastor Chip Whitman
Class contact: Cherryl Early, (760) 781-2108

EFCC's CARE Training is divided into four, six-week class segments. During these classes, participants will discover their personality type and how various personalities work together. You will understand how emotions and human behavior affect relationships between individuals, couples, family members, and coworkers. We will discuss the biblical and practical applications of ministry to the brokenhearted, discouraged and disconnected.

Classes will be presented with a multi-media and interactive approach. Discussion will be encouraged, and homework will be given along with a suggested reading list. By the completion of the training participants will be prepared to minister in a variety of settings, including hospital, home and hospice visitation and peer counseling.

Registration for CARE III is now available (see below), or contact Cherryl! Click here now to see our full schedule of classes (dates and topics are included for each class). Each six-week class segment is $10. Previous class alumni can attend for free. Please note that childcare is not provided for these classes.
