How we share hope in crisis

Welcome to Sharing Hope in Crisis training!

The one-day Sharing Hope in Crisis seminar is intended for Christians like you. We all know a friend, family member, neighbour, or colleague struggling with a life crisis. This seminar is designed to help you know what to say—and what not to say—to someone facing difficulty and to compassionately share the love of Jesus Christ with those who need it most. Sharing Hope in Crisis is especially useful for counsellors, first responders, and church leaders who serve suffering people on a regular basis.
