Christian perspective of addictions, treatment
Camden — Chestnut Street Baptist Church is Camden is hosting an addiction seminar entitled Addictions & Treatment — A Christian Perspective on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Lew Gervals of Hope Ministries in Palm Bay, Fla. and Matt Kantrowitz of His Mansion, located in Hillsborough, N.H. will be the guest speakers.
Gervals will speak on “How People Become Addicted and What Recovery Looks Like.” Since 1996, Gervals has been going to churches throughout the United States and Canada, offering his experience and wisdom as he helps churches learn to reach out to the hurting and the addicted in their community. His facilitator training seminars have been instrumental in helping many churches develop and expand their ability to minister to the hurting and the addicted in and around the church.
Kantrowitz, teaches healing through scripture at His Mansion founded in 1971 by an awareness and concern for the damage being done by addiction, the need to mobilize and equip young Christian men and women for service, and to capitalize on the tremendous potential that lay in the ranks of the otherwise dysfunctional victims of the culture.
This workshop is open to any person interested. There is no fee. However, guests will be asked to consider making a donation supporting the ministries of the presenters. Coffee, tea, etc. will be served in the morning. There will be a “working lunch” around a serving of pizza and beverages.
