The Bereavement Ministry Program: A Comprehensive Guide for Churches.
Rev. Aaker, an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and Ms. Nelson, Founder and Executive Director of HeartSprings, an integrated healing center in Fargo, North Dakota, have developed this comprehensive and sensitive toolbox to help congregations support those who are grieving. This binder and searchable CD includes letters and handouts which may be reproduced. The book provides information on starting a bereavement ministry, and offers separate suggestions for working with adults, children, and teenagers. It also includes supplemental materials for holidays and special days, and resources are tailored for circumstances such as death of a spouse, death of a parent, or death after a long-term illness. Special needs are addressed, such as providing help to those who have lost a child, support for grandparents, and support for those who have lost a loved one through suicide, murder, or other traumatic events.
