Advocate Training Clinic

Envision | Establish | Equip | Empower

The Advocate Clinic provides church volunteers, called Advocates, with detailed training on how to begin and maintain a strong Family Advocacy Ministry (FAM) at their church.

Our Advocate training process is built upon these basics:

 Establish | Equip | Empower

Establishing and Equipping a FAM (Family Advocacy Ministry) to thrive within your local church is facilitated through the training presented at our Advocate Clinic. Topics at the Advocate Clinic include: Establishing Goals, Forming and Launching Care Communities, Creating Awareness, Equipping Volunteers and Working with Public and Private Agencies to best care for foster and adoptive families in your community.

Empowering a Family Advocacy Ministry happens through utilizing our online Advocate Resources that are available thought our Volunteer Management tool called Promise Serves. Unlimited access to these resources ensures Advocates will always have the most up-to-date materials and training available to grow their ministry. We also offer subsequent coaching in the months following the Clinic.

Comments from Advocate Clinic Alumni:

I just want to say how much I appreciate you [Live The Promise Regional Manager] and Promise686. It was such a blessing to find out that the vision God put in my heart already existed with an amazing support system already in place to back it up. I never imagined that I would have not only the tools I need for an effective ministry at my fingertips, but also a personal mentor and support coach to make sure our ministry is successful. Promise686 has been a dream come true. I cannot imagine how much time and energy it would take for me if I where on my own. By simply attending a training I feel ready and equipped to immediately start a ministry that can effectively serve the people of our church. Thank you, thank you, thank you... for being so available and such an amazing representative of Promise686." -LTP Church Advocate, Beaufort, SC

Thank you for an extraordinary Clinic! It was well planned and implemented and was a great use of my time. After years of attending conferences and retreats I have learned to pick and chose the ones that will be most beneficial in time and money. Your conference fulfilled both. It was Spirit filled and was a wise investment! Thank you for being good stewards what you've been entrusted. It is greatly appreciated! I think God delivered and confirmed in a huge way... that He most definitely wants me to pursue this ministry to change our whole state for the better, to help foster families! The best is yet to come!  -LTP Affiliate, SC
