UA's Charis Initiative to Equip Church & Ministry Leaders in Crisis or Trauma Care

Article by Urban Alliance staff. 

At some point in their life, most people will experience a situation that is so distressing that they struggle to effectively cope. Many look to the church for support during these difficult times. Because of this, it is imperative that church and ministry leaders become equipped to support people who are experiencing a crisis situation.

This month's Charis quarterly meeting will equip church and ministry leaders to effectively support people in the aftermath of experiencing a crisis or trauma or who are struggling with the impact of a past trauma. Leaders will learn a framework for understanding stress, crisis, and trauma and practical tools for supporting people who are struggling.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, January 26 from 9:00-10:30am. If you are interested in learning more about how your church or ministry organization may participate in Urban Alliance's Charis initiative or if you are interested in attending this meeting, contact Angela Colantonio, Urban Alliance's Director of Implementation, Health & Basic Needs Initiatives, at or 860.986.7328.
