CARE MINISTRY

LIFELINE TO HOPE

We are very excited that RockPointe Church is offering Lifeline to Hope Caregiver Training. The purpose of the training is to equip lay leaders as competent biblical caregivers. Lifeline to Hope is a unique “first of its kind” resource to train people to effectively provide support, encouragement, spiritual care, and referral services on a short-term basis – connecting a life in need with a life in Christ!

Do you have a heart for people who are hurting and broken?

Are you a ministry leader or has God used you to come alongside others who are in deep emotional pain?

If so, then the Lifeline to Hope training program was designed just for you!

Lifeline to Hope is a national and international “gold standard” 11-week lay caregiver training and certification program that utilizes content drawn from the Keys for Living Library at Hope for the Heart, alongside the 40 years of mental health and ministry experience of course designer and lead trainer, Dr. Eric Scalise, and co-facilitator Haley Scully. This training program was developed in partnership with June Hunt’s Hope for the Heart ministry.

Addiction, abuse, violence, grief and loss, depression and suicide, marital and family stress… these are only some of the problems that churches face today. This is an opportunity for you to serve as a critical “first responder” within our RockPointe community.
