Freedom to Live Addictions Conference
Date: July 6, 2007
From July 12-15, Andrews University will host the "Freedom to Live" Addictions Ministry Conference, part of the 18th annual Summer School of Addictions. This conference will offer people the opportunity to learn how to build ministry skills as they deal with those struggling with addictions at church, school, or community. The conference is being held by the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists Health Ministries Department, in partnership with the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary and the Institute for Prevention of Addictions at Andrews University. It will take place in the Howard Performing Arts Center on the Andrews campus.
The program will focus on how addictions develop and how to start church and community-based prevention and recovery programs. Addictions experts presenting this year include: Keith Miller, Jerry Unser, Paul and Carol Cannon, David Williams, Kiti Freier, Evelyn-Cole Kissinger, Vicki Griffin and 25 others.
A variety of workshops will take place, including "Brain on a Binge: Finding Freedom from Food Addictions;" "Cyber-sex Addictions;" and "Tobacco-Has the Challenge Changed?"
Academic or continuing education credits are available. Andrews students can register for academic credit online at "Registration Central." All others go to Addiction Ministry to register for the conference. For more information, contact Derri Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cindy Clark at SEEDS@nadei.org.
