Healing Communities Training For Clergy and Congregations
The Healing Communities Training focuses on the restoration and healing for people affected by crime and the criminal justice system. Healing Communities are needed as one in 104 American adults are currently incarcerated and one in 33 are under criminal justice system control. The odds are EVERY congregation has members affected by crime and the criminal justice system, whether as crime victims, offenders, or families.
The Healing Communities model equips congregations to become a “Station of Hope” by providing training and support in building relationships of healing, redemption, and reconciliation with individuals and families impacted by the criminal justice system. Building relationships of healing and reconciliation is the focus. Congregations are encouraged to send a group of at least three leaders/active members in order to effectively implement the model in their setting.
