EPT Workshop is an interactive workshop from a biblical foundation designed to help redefine your understanding of poverty—both causes and solutions—in Canada and abroad. Connect with individuals in your community while gaining a healthy, hope-filled approach to poverty alleviation. Join thousands of Canadians who have enjoyed the interactive content, videos, and discussion.
UNDERSTANDING YOURSELF AND OTHERS WORKSHOP
Discover why you and others think, behave, and communicate so differently and learn how to bridge those gaps. Misunderstandings are often rooted in personality differences. See how identifying these can help your team—whether family, church, or business—flourish and succeed together. Utilizing the Personality Style Indicator (PSI), a trained facilitator will guide your group into healthier ways of relating to one another.
HELPING WITHOUT HURTING IN SHORT-TERM MISSIONS WORKSHOP
Taking core ideas from Brian Fikkert’s book When Helping Hurts and applying them to short-term mission trips, FH facilitators help prepare your leaders with practical guidelines and examples for doing short-term missions without doing long-term harm. This workshop fosters interaction and reflection within your team.
LISTEN UP WORKSHOP
FH and Telecare Crisis and Caring Line have teamed up to offer a half-day, online workshop designed to help anyone who wants to improve their supportive listening skills. Expect dynamic facilitators, videos, activities, and discussion times. Together we will explore God’s heart for listening, and how to be present in a meaningful way to others in this age of so-many-distractions.
"[The workshop] re-focused my thinking about who the poor are. Our culture tends to paint the poor as lazy, not smart, needing a hand out, etc when in fact we need to lift our eyes to see them as worthy of respect and assistance, capable of systemic change given the right opportunities." - Workshop Attendee (Langley, BC)
"I loved it - definitely exceeded my expectations! I really think everyone who is involved in advocacy needs to take this." - Workshop Attendee (Vernon, BC)
"The training helped us to think strategically about how we help people... We were challenged to think about long-term solutions instead of short-term fixes." - Pastor Craig (Abbotsford, BC)
"FH gets it and has excellent facilitators with adaptable training content for global and local contexts. Partnering with FH has been refreshing." - Wendi (Winnipeg, MB)
