Ministering to Intermarried Couples and Their Families: A Pastoral Approach
If you've been challenged with intermarried couples' needs and concerns, this workshop should prove helpful. Based on results that emerged from the Interfaith Research Project (IRP), participants will be offered an overview of a pastoral approach that should prove useful to their efforts to minister more effectively to this growing population of faithful. To that end, the first part of the workshop will offer a description of an Ecological, Developmental Orthodox Theory that emerged from the IRP. The second part will present some strategies related to effectively working with this population. The third part will feature a case study illustrating the initial information offered in parts one and two.
