Lifeline to Hope 11-Week Course
Sunday evenings, beginning January 12
"Lifeline to Hope is a unique ‘first of its kind’ resource to train and deploy an army of caregivers — people who are able to effectively provide support, encouragement, spiritual care, and referral services on a short-term basis — connecting a life in need with a life in Christ!"
- Do you have a heart for people who are hurting and broken?
- Is compassion one of your spiritual gifts?
- Are you a ministry leader or has God used you to come alongside others who are in deep emotional pain?
If so, then the Lifeline to Hope training program was designed just for you!
Lifeline to Hope is a national and international “gold standard” 11-week lay caregiver training and certification program that utilizes content drawn from the Keys for Living Library at Hope for the Heart, alongside the 40 years of mental health and ministry experience of course designer and lead trainer, Dr. Eric Scalise, and co-facilitator Haley Scully.
Addiction, abuse, violence, grief and loss, depression and suicide, marital and family stress… these are only some of the problems that churches face today. This is an opportunity for you to serve as a critical “first responder” within your faith community. Lifeline to Hope is a unique resource to train and deploy an army of caregivers — people just like you who are able to effectively provide support, encouragement, spiritual care, and referral services on a short-term basis — connecting a life in need with a life in Christ!
WHERE & WHEN:
Training will take place at Chase Oaks Church off Legacy Drive in Plano, Texas. Lifeline to Hope is structured as an 11-week core program scheduled for Sunday evenings from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. The dates for the training are January 12, 19, and 26; (skip Feb 2); resume February 9, 16, and 23; and March 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29.

HELP establish a network of caregivers such as yourself who are able to assist church leaders, support existing caregiving efforts, and/or launch a dynamic lay caregiving ministry
CREATE a local community of like-minded servants who are available to one another for the purpose of support, encouragement, resources, and accountability
PRESENT you with opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, transformational and biblical insights, and leadership development.
