Essentials of Formational Care

October 20 & 21, 2023 // Friday 6p-9p Saturday 9a-4p

Many dedicated Christians secretly struggle with unprocessed emotional wounds of the past. These wounds, left unhealed, can form a seemingly impenetrable wall that hinders spiritual, relational, and psychological growth, often frustrating people in their pursuit of freedom in Christ. Even when they “try harder” people can feel struck, at times even locked in dysfunctional behaviors that offer short term relief, but bring long term bondage.

Formational Care is a set of healing protocols that position people for transforming encounters with Christ. The Formational Care model integrates spiritual practices, insights from the behavioral sciences, basic caregiving skills, and the power of the Holy Spirit, into an episodic encounter with the Lord that brings freedom and a deepening relationship with Jesus.

Emphasis will be given to:

  • The caregiver’s personal healing journey
  • The importance of episodic memory in healing the past
  • How to position the broken for healing encounters with the Lord
  • The relationship between wounds, false beliefs, ungrieved loss, and dysfunctional behavior
  • The importance of safety as a venue for change

This introduction to Formational Care is an equipping and empowering event for people interested in helping others find freedom from the emotional baggage of the past.
