Silent Screams: Is Anybody Listening

Mental health has become the hot topic in this country and worldwide.  Statistics show that depression is becoming the leading cause of disability worldwide.  It’s a topic that needs to be intentionally addressed in our schools and churches.  Pastors, leaders, adults, youth and children can be affected.  Some of our children are battling depression with suicide ideation.  Sadly, a 17 yo male teen active in church committed suicide in June.  The church has been silent addressing this, but it’s time we start the conversations and educate ourselves to tear down the stigmas and find ways to bring love and support to our family, friends and community.

This conference will bring awareness on mental health issues that impact children and youth. The most common disorders are anxiety and depression. Suicide is alarmingly increasing among children, especially black boys and girls ages 5-12. Learn from mental health professionals about how behavior is communication and what we can do to love and support our children. There will also be the Suicide Prevention Awareness Certification conducted by the South Carolina Mental Health of America.

Schedule
Friday evening – meal and opening with special prayer and anointing and seminar
Sabbath will include seminars, sermon, and certification training at 3:00 p.m.

The 2019 Summit on Abuse will provide valuable training that will equip and prepare you for when abuse occurs. You can make a difference.

The Summit will be live-streamed on the enditnowNAD Facebook page beginning at 3:00 pm EST.

A Practical Guide to Effective Health Ministry

Ministering to the health needs of the community is a vital part of God’s last-day message to the world.  When done effectively, it opens the hearts of people from all backgrounds to the gospel truths.  This seminar will look at the practical keys to running a power-filled health ministry at your church.  This course is offered by the Health Ministries department of the North American Division, and is highly recommended for all health ministry leaders.

In one of the twelve vision statements developed by the Manitoba-Saskatchewan Conference, number 4 states:

4.  Area training for broad spectrum community service including health ministries.

There is an urgent  need in our conference for this type of  Health Ministries training.  As the communities become more secular it is harder for the churches in our conference to attract individuals to our evangelistic efforts.  The one area that does seem to still hold an attraction is in the area of health as most individuals are still interested in bettering their health or the health of their families.    In order to send out effective disciples in the area of health ministries we need appropriate training to better equip us to reach the world with this all important “entering wedge”.
