Seminars with Julie Lowe

Upcoming Seminars with Julie Lowe

Hope Counseling Services, in partnership with Christ Community Church, will be presenting two seminars with CCEF Faculty Member Julie Lowe.

Event 1: Protecting the Vulnerable: Preventing and Responding to Abuse

Friday September 20, 2019, 2p-5p

Location: Church of the Good Shepherd 3741 Garrett Rd, Durham, NC 27707

Cost to attend: $25 ($45 to attend both days)

Situations of abuse generate a wide range of emotions—from outrage and a demand for justice, to fear, shame, and disbelief. It can be challenging to respond well. But when abuse is brought to our attention, we must work hard not to respond based on emotion or personal bias. We should act wisely, justly and deliberately. Doing so is not only a legal mandate, but also is a moral and biblical one as well. This seminar will explore ways the church can both prevent abuse and respond wisely when abuse takes place.

Event 2: Childproof: Parenting by Faith, not Formula

Saturday September 21, 2019, 9a-12:30p

Location: Church of the Good Shepherd 3741 Garrett Rd, Durham, NC 27707

Cost to attend: $25 ($45 to attend both days)

Parents and caregivers need wisdom and encouragement, no matter the ages and stages of those in their care. As an experienced counselor of children and families and an adoptive and foster mom applying the CCEF model of biblical change, Julie Lowe will use Scripture and biblical wisdom to teach attendees how to know their children and specifically love them with the love of Christ. Every child and every family is unique.

Julie Lowe will share from her personal and professional experience, and together discover how gospel-centered application, rather than formulas for the ideal family, equips us to be experts at knowing our own children so we can know Scripture and live it out personally in our homes.
