Journeying TogetherJourneying 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.
