The workshop is created for pastors, council, care-team members, Stephen Ministers, and anyone involved in congregational care-giving. Reverend Mark Stephenson, director of Disability Concerns ministry for the Christian Reformed Church in North America, will lead. 

The workshop will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Ozinga Chapel. The cost is $20 per person or $15 per person with a group of five or more. The first 60 registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
