“If you’re wondering if Cancer Companions is for you and your church you should most definitely attend. I think all churches could benefit from having this training.”

Introductory 30 Minute Web Seminar
Introductory Web Seminar will answer the questions:
- What do cancer families need that peer counselors can provide?
- Who in a cancer family needs help?
- How can Cancer Companion Volunteers help meet these needs?
- What materials are available to assist the Cancer Companion Volunteer?
- What training is available for Cancer Companions Volunteers and Ministry Leaders?
” Introductory Web Seminar is useful to inform both church staff and potential volunteers because:
it gives an overall picture of how they can help
identifies that there is on-going training to assist them— they won’t be on their own.
helps reinforce that this is a well organized ministry with resources so they don’t have to “invent the wheel” but the ministry allows them the flexibility to modify and make it their own.”
– Judy Cancer Companions Ministry Leader, Maryville, IL
