SOUL SHOP FOR YOUTH LEADERS
Training for Ministry with Youth Experiencing Suicidal Desperation
Soul Shop movement. On August 22, 2017 from 8:30am-4:00pm, Abiding Hope Church (map) will be hosting Soul Shop for Youth Leaders. Soul Shop for Youth Leaders is a one-day training to equip teachers, educators, youth pastors, youth leaders, servants who walk alongside youth (like confirmation guides) and quite frankly any adult who cares deeply about young people, to minister to youth impacted by suicidal desperation. Special attention will focus on youth specific issues of impulsivity and contagion. The training includes the creation of resources, training congregation and community members in suicide awareness and basic conversation skills, and the invitation to those who have been suicidal in the past to share their stories.
