Kentucky Clergy/Lay Ministers Certification Trainings in the Home Stretch!

Post 69

First, Lexington ... second, Morehead ... next, Shepherdsville (Greater Louisville Area)! 
We are stretching across the State of Kentucky with the American Board's pioneering Clergy/Lay Ministers Certification in Problem Gambling Prevention, Education, Awareness, and Spiritual Outreach Care.  The curriculum covers both clinical and spiritually-focused information; the take-home materials are quite practical to the parish and ready to use; and the instruction is noteworthy and accompanied by real-life testimonies.  Each time, we've met enthusiasm and keen interest!

During May 11-13, Modules 3 and 4 will be given in conjunction with the Kentucky Faith-Based Prevention Enhancement Site Fourth Annual Conference: Empowerment for Prevention!  This conference is also  a collaboration with the Kentucky Faith-Based Coalition.  The Conference dates are May 11-12.

Below is information about both - the Modules' Training Sessions and the Conference.
