Finally, a resource to help those who are grieving in your church and community.
You are invited to join us for the inaugural launch of The Bereavement Journey in Canada!
Our District Nazarene Discipleship International (NDI) board from Canada Central District (CCD) is proud to be offering this amazing resource developed in the UK.
We have permission to be the first location outside the UK to offer this grief resource.
What's the Plan?
Your hosts, Pastor Charmaine Kofler and Ruth Copeland-Holtz will be leading the first course of 7-weeks as a training opportunity for selected leadership across CCD.
Sunday, October 15, 2023 on Zoom from 7-9 PM for 7 weeks.
Our vision is that you can use this course in your community to support those who are grieving in your ministry once you've completed the training.

What Participants Have Said
I have found the Bereavement Journey incredibly useful and supportive and I can see a way forward, thanks to you and the team.
You have no idea how important this is to me (you probably do, to be fair) and how much strength I've gained from the sessions. In particular the group time after the films has been so useful.
I really feel that I've turned a corner as a result of what I've learned. And I now also know that I'm not losing my mind, that this process is going to take its own course, and that a set back is to be expected and that I can survive it.
You can be certain that I'll recommend the course. In fact, I already have.
