We have worked with BeFriender Ministry from the beginning to develop a more accessible training solution, to meet people where they are at in the journey of developing a caring community. Below are examples of the concepts we train directly to volunteers through in-person and digital on-demand training.
Our Partnership with BeFriender Ministry
BeFriender Ministry has developed and refined a unique educational experience of 35 years of working with churches. We believe this educational experience is crucial for empowering new leaders and volunteers to maintain an active and engaged outreach ministry.
BeFriender Ministry principles guide the ministry and characterize the pastoral care a BeFriender brings to others.
Here are the four key guiding principles of BeFriender Ministry:
- God is present
- Caring not curing
- Nonjudgmental presence
- Active listening
