Faith-based community initiative comes to Farrell

FARRELL – Community Arts Experience (C.A.E.) recently announced an initiative intended to strategize an effective plan to equip faith-based communities with the tools necessary to combat trauma and build resilience.

C.A.E.’s ‘Getting Connected’ Church Tour presentation is a component of their Students Taking Ownership Mentoring Project (STOMP), a countywide prevention program designed to combat all forms of violence before it starts by deploying a comprehensive nondenominational faith-based model to transform culture strategically.

The ‘Getting Connected’ Church Tour is one of six phases within the STOMP strategic plan to introduce C.A.E.’s Resilient Church Equipping Solution™, a 16-week course founded on the Ephesians 4 biblical mandate to equip faith leaders in providing trauma- informed solutions and strategies to build a thriving and resilient church. Courses are delivered in a two-hour hybrid learning environment, an approach that combines traditional, face-to-face “seat time” sessions with online activities consisting of several learning objectives.

Speakers scheduled for ‘Getting Connected’ Church Tour presentation include: Mercer County Coroner, Mr. John Libonati; Jenn Thumm and Brian Murray from Haven Professional Counseling, LLC; Alyson Stover of Capable Kids; Ben Zimmer of the Life Center – Greenville; Tanya Tenica of the Gennésis Network; Brian Pleasant of One Kingdom Ministries.

Each speaker will address critical issues affecting our community and provide practical ways to respond and help build resilience as people of faith. C.A.E.’s Resilient Church Equipping Solution ™ presents a plan to enable church leaders to serve their congregation better. For youth to sustain positive relationships and experience and manage their emotions, churches, their families, and the community must know how to respond appropriately.

Scheduled topics for ‘Getting Connected’ Church Tour presentation include: 1. How can the Church impact those affected by trauma, addiction, and mental illness?

2. How can the Church become a part of the solution to help build resilience?

3. Leverage shared information and learn how to respond with the best and most appropriate care for those in your congregation.

Faith and community leaders are cordially invited to attend.

The event will take place at 6 p.m. on April 27 at One Kingdom Ministries, 927 Lee Ave.,
