God’s Plan for Improving Global Health
DATE: November 1, 2016
Seeing ways that God calls nurses to meet challenges inspires us and gives hope. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from Sam Mbok from Nigeria: nurse, former board member of Nurses Christian Fellowship International (NCFI), and founder of the Rebecca Mbok Foundation that addresses the crises of infant and maternal mortality in Nigeria. Come to hear how God is improving maternal newborn health through HBLSS- Home Based Life Saving Skills.
TIME: Tues. Nov. 1, 2016, 6:30pm – 8:30 for a soup supper (free) and discussion
PLACE: Stadium Village Church: 501 Oak Street SE, Minneapolis, MN 55441
We will learn from Sam’s example as he shares:
+ God’s call to the NCFI movement in Nigeria to be a Christian influence in healthcare issues in their country
+ God’s call to Sam to begin the Foundation (that grew out of tragedy and suffering)
+ Opportunities to represent Jesus Christ in healthcare – in Nigeria and in MN
There will be opportunity for questions & answers. We will pray together about our responses to global health care.
CONTINUING EDUCATION: One (1) contact hour for MN nursing CE credit

Journeying Together: A Faithful Response to Addiction
DATE: Saturday, November 12, 2016
TIME: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
LOCATION: Anderson Chapel, North Park University & Seminary, Chicago
DESCRIPTION: A continuing education workshop for healthcare and ministry professionals in service to the church. Addictions, from drugs to alcohol, food to sex, are impacting our churches and communities cutting across, age, race and socioeconomic status. Not only an individual struggle, this challenge calls for community support to face the pain leading to addiction and be present in the journey towards wellness. There are many approaches to addiction recovery, yet spirituality is consistently recognized as central to the process. With the many hungers that addictions try ineffectively to satisfy, the church has a unique opportunity to provide food for the soul as we faithfully journey with individuals and families struggling with addiction and walking the path of recovery.
This second biennial faith and health symposium, provided by North Park Theological Seminary and North Park University School of Nursing and Health Sciences, will explore how healthcare professionals and congregations can collaborate to respond faithfully to the challenge of addiction, considering what can be done together that neither can do alone.
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dr. Mark Laaser, M.Div., Ph.D., is nationally recognized as the leading authority in the field of sexual addiction with over 28 years of recovery experience and President and Director of Faithful & True.
