Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) 

Training for Faith Groups

Trauma-informed care" quickly is becoming the it phrase among non-sectarian care agencies. Yet congregations, on the whole, have been slow to utilize the tools associated with the ground-breaking research and irrefutable data associated with trauma-informed studies.


An Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) can be a profound indicator of how people cope and deal with adversity as they age. Studies have shown that the leading causes of disease, disability, learning, lack of productivity and early death have their roots in the cumulative impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).  Spirituality is a core protective factor in healing and building resilience in God's people. Churches can play a VITAL role in helping people heal and thrive.  Join us to learn how communities of faith can have an impact. 

STIR Faith Based Task Force offers on-line Virtual ACE training. For more information or to schedule a training for your faith community contact Roxy Foster 763-807-8759 or
