TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Faith leaders in Tulsa are being invited to attend a workshop to help them implement substance abuse ministries in their congregations.

The Faith Partners Team Training workshop is scheduled on Friday and Saturday and there is no cost to attend.

The goal is to equip faith leaders with the information, skills and resources they need to initiate, plan and implement a substance abuse ministry. In the training, teams are guided in identifying their mission and setting realistic goals for their first year of ministry.

The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services provides funding for the Tulsa Health Department’s substance abuse program. The mental health agency has partnered with Faith Partners, Inc. and local congregations to develop and implement an informed, sustainable spiritual response to substance use problems.
