Congregational & Community Education
Congregational coaching is part of Peaceful Livingʼs unique aspect of holistic care. We believe that in order to assure that we achieve our mission of creating belonging for persons with a disability within a faith community it is essential to provide a personalized professional support who will come along side the congregation and itʼs leaders, as well as the individual and their family. The Congregational coach is here to provide support, bridge gaps, equip, educate, edify,resource, and connect.
Support for Pastoral Staff and Congregations
At Peaceful Living we understand that pastors and their staff often have more than their fair share to juggle. It can be trying to effectively meet the needs of congregational members. Families and individuals affected by disability are no exception and often come with a unique set of needs and stresses that can feel intimidating to deal with on a pastoral level. Our congregational coaching program is designed to help bare the burden with you and the families affected by disability to lighten some of what may feel heavy when carried alone. We will come along side of you to meet you where you are,listen, pray, and support you. Some of the ways we can do this is by simply being here for you to help address personalized concerns, we can help you help a family connect with much needed resources and community supports, we will also help to increase volunteers. Some other things you may find helpful are our congregational Meet and Greets where church/ministry leaders come together to share ideas, troubleshoot issues, and pray. Our mini-conferences help bring leaders and church members alike up to date on current issues and equips you to deal with them head on. We offer sermons, trainings, and bible studies for the young and the delightfully aged. There are nearly 20 ways on paper we can list on how we can help. You can use one way or you can use them all. We are here to tailor to your needs in this area, meet you where you are, and assist you with reaching optimal health and wholeness in your congregational body.
