Pastor and Chaplain Training

Yellow register

 

 

 

March 2-3

Don’t miss an opportunity to sharpen your skills as a pastor or chaplain. IBSA is proud to sponsor the upcoming Pastor and Chaplain Training Conference at the IBSA building. Not only is this an opportunity for Pastors to sharpen their ministry skills, endorsed North American Mission Board Chaplains may count this training for your yearly requirement.

Chaplain Greg Stafford, Director of Pastoral Care at Memorial Medical Hospital, Springfield, will offer an important class focused on hospital pastoral/chaplaincy visits. Greg and his staff will cover a variety of topics, from practical experience to more effectively minister to patients.

Chaplain Dan Lovin will teach a two-day class on assisting individuals in crisis. This is a basic Critical Incident Stress Management course (CISM).  You will receive Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for this class.  Topics that will be covered include:

  • Definitions, Terms and Concepts
  • Are You Listening? 
  • Crisis Communication Techniques
  • Communication Structure
  • Common Psychological Reactions in Crisis
  • Cautions in Crisis Intervention
  • The SAFER-Revised Model of Individual Crisis Intervention

This CISM class will be offered again at our Fall training event, September 21 and 22, 2017.

Space for these courses is limited, so do not delay in registering. Registration closes February 22. The cost for the conference is $40.00 and includes your materials. Please see the attached schedule. You are responsible for your own meals.  Please contact Deborah Muller at 217-391-3126 or debbiemuller@ibsa.org for the class you want to take. You are responsible for your own hotel reservations.
