Highlights of current and past St. Luke activities
Join us on Sunday, January 27th, as we welcome our guest speaker Lincoln Coffman, who will be sharing about addiction, recovery, and faith. Mr. Coffman is the Project Lifeline Peer Coordinator for Region 7 (Shelby County) Tennessee. He is CPRS certified and has received trainings in WRAP, ACEs, and Healing Arts Research. He has over 7.5 years of abstinence and recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction, which has taken place in the recovery communities of Memphis, TN. Inthat time, he became a father, received Bachelors and Masters degrees at The University of Memphis, taught English Composition, Literature, and Poetry at the university, and began working as a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) with the Memphis Area Prevention Coalition. As a CPRS and Lifeliner, he answers calls via the Tennessee Redline (1-800-889-9789) and attempts to make recovery more accessible to those seeking help. He facilitates 12 Step Meetings in local jails and prisons and speaks to various groups about alcoholism, addiction, stigma, and recovery. He also reaches out to local congregations in the hope that they will join the Tennessee Faith Based Initiative and become Certified Recovery Congregations.
Church Health is offering this free MHFA class at St. Luke. During the training, you will learn a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people demonstrating symptoms of a mental illness or a crisis, and you'll be equipped with tools to connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.
Registration is required: Click HERE to reserve your spot. Class is limited to 30 participants. All are invited to attend!
