Hi Everyone,

Thanks again for attending our "Hope In the Gospel" seminar in Sewell, NJ and for giving us your feedback on the survey. We want to send a special “shout out” to Fellowship Bible Church for their wonderful hospitality with hosting the event!

We hope you were personally enriched and further equipped in the Word of God to comfort the brokenhearted that are struggling with various addictions with an entirely biblical perspective.

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17

If you attended the full 2-day (15 unit) seminar, you should have picked up your completion Certificate at the close of the event. If you forgot, or didn't pre-register - your certificate will be mailed to the address indicated on the "Walk-In" form that you submitted when you arrived; let us know if you haven't received it in a few weeks.

We're praying that many of you will be led to further your training with The Addiction Connection (TAC) ministry to seek becoming a "commissioned" biblical addictions counselor. To continue this process, contact TAC directly through their Web site at www.theaddictionconnection.org - Let them know that you completed the (15-unit) 'Hope In the Gospel' training (they may want you to forward a copy of your certificate).

Please continue to pray that the Lord will provide more opportunities for TAC to further equip the body of Christ in this very needed area of ministry. As you can see from the turnout from this event (~100+ attendees from 7 different states), the addictions epidemic isn't going away! We are already making plans to conduct another seminar (with a different tract of sessions) in eastern PA in 2019, and in the central NJ or New England area in 2020; we'll keep you posted on our progress. 

If you have any questions related to this conference, you can reach out at the contact info below.

In his service,

TAKE ACTION

Confirm James Carroll for ONDCP Director
Capitol American Flag
The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) needs strong and clear leadership. At a time when nearly 200 Americans are dying every day to a drug overdose, we need ONDCP to ensure a comprehensive and effective response to the opioid crisis. That can only be achieved with a Senate-confirmed Director.

Without a Senate-confirmed Director at ONDCP, our nation's drug epidemic will inevitably continue without the needed resources and attention it deserves. James Carroll will fight for the interests of families struggling with this disease.

Send a letter to Congress now to confirm James Carroll for ONDCP director, so that we can work with ONDCP to solve the addiction epidemic and save lives together.
