HOW CAN

FORUM FOR GROWTH IN SERVICE

HELP YOU?


DO YOU

have a heart for serving others

but often feel tired, angry, unappreciated or frustrated?


ARE YOU

serious about being a good care-giver

but sometimes get overwhelmed and feel burned-out?


FORUM FOR GROWTH IN SERVICE

IS HERE TO HELP YOU


WE ARE

honest about the difficulties of being in service:

spiritual

emotional

physical.


WE ARE COMMITTED TO

* helping you gain self-awareness

* giving you practical tools you can use every day

* teaching you about the effects of your

hidden biases and needs

* assisting your self-care planning

* helping you reconnect to your LOVE for serving others so you can

* THRIVE and GROW in service.

I really wish I had this course back when I was supervising social work interns and urban ministry interns. I could have incorporated these themes into my one-on-one or group sessions with them. So beautifully relevant!

Cassandra Lewis, MSW, M.Ed
