Recovery Ministry Training (CPE – Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches)

newsDo you want to start or sustain your church’s addiction, prevention, or recovery ministry? Join us as we hear how churches have developed recovery ministries.

Through the CPE in Recovery Ministries Program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches, students discover how the 12 Steps enrich our spirituality. The future clergy also help congregations develop their recovery ministries, as they practice pastoral care related to addiction and develop skills for on-going ministry.

It’s a beautiful synergy when fall CPE students pick up where summer CPE students left off, allowing congregations to move their recovery work forward. Hear from some of the eight (8) seminarians whom SPSARV has supported – some of whom now have their own appointments — at these links: Dr. & Pastor Kelly Lamon, Sarah Kronkvist, Karen Evenson, Pastor Eric Shin, and Katherine Parent.
