Ministering to Those Suffering from Addictions

Instructor: Brandon Hayes

Description:
Alcohol. Opiates. Pornography. Cigarettes. Gambling. Marijuana. Video Games. These are just a few of the many substances and behaviors with which people can seemingly become addicted. Clearly, we can see Satan continuing his efforts to lead believers astray, which seems to be getting easier while living in a world that seems to glamorize instant gratification and idolize “feeling good.” Students in this course will focus on reviewing some of the most prevalent forms of addiction, identifying warning signs of when individuals are losing control, and discussing strategies to help effectively minister to these hurting individuals.
