Understanding the Scope of Perspectives for Ministry in MAiD

Continuing Education - for individuals or small groups

Using professionally developed video content, Dr. Gloria Woodland will present a basic understanding of End-of-Life Care and Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD). Participants will increase their awareness of patient, family, and healthcare worker perspectives and build skills for coming alongside pastorally. The understanding of Scripture, theology, and denominational positions on MAiD will be considered as one develops a pastoral position for response. Of particular interest to denominational leaders and those who counsel pastoral care-givers will be the lessons on Postvention Care and the information on how to support ministering individuals impacted by a person’s decision for MAiD.

The small group format of eight weeks includes the online videos, a printable learning and resource guide, and a one-time consultation with Dr. Gloria Woodland.

Register below as the point person, and your small group, church, or facility (up to 12 people) will receive access for 13 weeks (one semester) to the online site where all the materials for the eight-week study are housed. Online access will be available from Sep 2, 2024 – Nov 30, 2024 for a one-time fee of $475.

This teaching is offered as Continuing Education through MB Seminary for groups, churches, and facilities.
