"Hiding Place" Healing Arts Ministry Workshop for Survivors of Sexual Crime
Hiding Place is a 3-Day Overnight Small Group Retreat for Survivors of Sexual Crime. Participants can seek sponsorship or become sponsors for someone else. This workshop is unique in its presentation of the ministry of Art as a healing conduit. Experience the healing power of specially prepared works of poetry, dance, music, mime, drama and visual art. The workshop includes personal group and individual growth sessions infused with the arts and passages from our text book ("Ravaged Relentlessly: Biblical Help for Those Overcoming Sexual Crime"), help-directed discussions and friendship building activities.
Each day is filled with devotional time led by Ministers, activities, personal prayer ministry, Bible Study of the Healing and Delivering Power of God for Survivors and available Christian Counselors if requested. Sessions on prevention will also be offered. You don't have to be a Survivor of sexual crime to attend. This is also a workshop for Believers that wish to be better equipped in the area of helping a person who asks for help. Learning to be sensitive, effective and discreet are all key skills to acquire.
This training is recommend for:
- Community Advocates
- Police Officers
- Youth Workers
It should be noted that the workshop is open, but not all sessions are co-ed, for sensitivity reasons. There will be sessions for concerned citizens, men, women and youth, as well as general session. The cost for the entire workshop is $250 (or $50 material fee to attend without accommodations or meals).
