Volunteer Disaster Chaplaincy Training

The Beecken Center of the School of Theology at the University of the South, in partnership with the National Disaster Interfaiths Network (NDIN), invites clergy, laypersons, professionals, first-responders, and spiritual caregivers of all faiths to take this three-day disaster chaplaincy training. Participants who complete this certification can volunteer as a disaster chaplain in their own community, or with NDIN and its partners nationwide. NDIN can also assist unaffiliated volunteers in finding disaster spiritual care volunteer opportunities in local communities across the United States.

Emergency managers and disaster mental health professionals may also take this course to develop their knowledge of spiritual care best-practices during disasters.

This curriculum prepares chaplains and credentialed religious leaders to provide spiritual and emotional care during deployment to disaster sites and within their own communities. It is comprised of six four-hour sessions over three days, covering religious literacy and competency, disaster operations, disaster spiritual care, disaster mental health, and self-care for caregivers.

FEMA’s online IS 100 course on the Incident Command System must be completed prior to this training.

The training is divided into two parts. The first, Engaging Faith Communities in Disasters, is a religious literacy and competency course focused on why and how to engage faith communities during disasters and public health emergencies.

The second part prepares clergy, laypersons, religious leaders, professionals, or spiritual care providers to volunteer as disaster chaplains in mass-care settings, or to serve as disaster chaplains within their house of worship, religious community, or professional institution. Led by a team from the National Disaster Interfaiths Network, participants learn about disaster response operations, spiritual care, mental health, and self-care. Strategies to promote recovery and resiliency are also covered.

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity! Space is limited and the training will fill up fast, so register today. CEUs are also available.

efm1.jpg

Join us in Sewanee this April!

Education for Ministry (EfM) invites all graduates to an EfM Graduates Retreat on the grounds of beautiful St. Mary's Sewanee retreat center, April 27–29, 2018. Participants will gather in a Circles of Trust® format to delve into the significance of individual talents as indicated by the Gallup StrengthsFinder® assessment. Elsa Bakkum, EfM associate director for training, will facilitate.

efm2.jpg

The StrengthsFinder, also known as the StrengthsQuest, was developed by Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D. and built on the Positive Psychology movement. Over 13 million people have discovered language for their individual talents using this tool. Its principles are as follows:

  • Each person’s talents are enduring and unique,
  • Everyone has talents,
  • Each person’s greatest room for growth is in the area of their greatest strength.

During the retreat, short presentations will invite participants to name, claim, and own their strengths for use in ministry. There will be ample individual reflection time, and the level of participation in the Circle of Trust groups will be according to each person's preference.

This event is for all graduates of EfM. Check-in will begin at 1:00 p.m. CST April 27. The program will commence with dinner at 6:00 p.m. on the 27th and will conclude at 11:00 a.m., Sunday the 29th. Commuter rates are available.

unnamed (1).jpg

The Beecken Center of the School of Theology is partnering with Listening Hearts Ministries to offer an intensive, four-day retreat to train participants in the art of facilitating and mentoring spiritual discernment groups using the Listening Hearts approach. Held at the DuBose Conference Center, the retreat will include communal meditation activities; workshops that teach the practical aspects of teaching spiritual discernment; and a series of discernment sessions, each of which is followed by a reflective review to gain insight into the elements that bring forth fruitful discernment.

This Listening Hearts retreat can count as Alternate Mentor Training for Education for Ministry (EfM) mentors. Requirements for Alternate Mentor Training include having completed two Foundations Trainings, being "Formation ready," not having completed another Alternate Training within the last three trainings, and not needing to go back to Foundations after three Formations. Contact Elsa Bakkum, EfM Associate Director for Training, at esbakkum@sewanee.edu for Alternate Training credit.

The program has an “at home” component: for five weeks prior to the retreat (the weeks of Jan. 28; Feb. 5, 12, 19, & 26), participants will engage in short readings, creative meditation exercises, and online sharing of reflections. The assignments will require an average of two hours of work a week, which can usually be broken into several chunks, and include online sharing with a mentor and other members of the group.

  • Tuition: $750
  • Lodging not included. Lodging reservations may be made directly with the DuBose Conference Center using this form.

  • Register here >>

This retreat is geared to spiritually mature leaders of all ages who are committed to the principles set forth in Listening Hearts, and affords each participant the opportunity to enter into discernment in relation to his or her own life while also learning to train and mentor discernment groups. Participants will work in small groups, each with its own mentor. Silence, song, imaginative engagement with Scripture, creative meditation activities, and contemplative sharing of reflections combine to draw each group into the flow of the Spirit.

Hear the Call.  Build the Movement. Join All Our Children National Network and the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina for a national learning event January 16 - 18, 2018 in Columbia, SC.

All Our Children: The Church’s Role in Education Equity is an ecumenical learning event focusing on the urgency of quality public education for all children and lifting up how communities of faith are already strengthening public education in their cities, states, and across the nation. This three-day gathering will include informative, interactive workshops and plenaries led by practicing educators, experienced community leaders, and hands-on researchers. Our time together will focus on specific steps you and your congregation can take to build Beloved Community through local partnerships, action, and service, with time for conversation, idea sharing, and networking.

Participants can expect to develop a deep understanding of Christian faith foundations for public education support, engagement, and advocacy and to leave the conference with specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timed action plans to share with church and community leaders in their home cities and states.

Dismantling Racism Training - St. Patrick’s, Dunwoody

Dismantling Racism training seeks to increase "racial understanding, healing and reconciliation." It is offered several times throughout the year and is required for all parish clergy and all lay leaders, including vestry members.  Trainings are developed by the Diocese of Atlanta Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism. 

The training was adjusted in 2012 to "reflect the fruit of several conversations that the commission has conducted," said Dr. Catherine Meeks of Riverdale, commission chair. "We have wanted to reframe the training in a way that makes the experience a part of the ongoing spiritual formation of the participants," she said.

Training, required of all clergy and lay leaders, runs for a single day from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Although there is no charge to take the training, pre-registration is requested no later than one week in advance.

For information on the trainings and how to register, contact Mary Job, mjob@episcopalatlanta.org.
