Virtual Gathering: Childhood Trauma and the Brain

All people are deeply impacted by connections made in childhood. Unfortunately, for many children, healthy connections are not the biggest influences in their life, but rather trauma, abuse, and neglect shape their view and interactions with the world.

Join us on September 17 when Casey Call, Assistant Director at the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, leads us in exploring the impact of trauma on the brain, as well as strategies for promoting healing.

This virtual gathering will provide understanding to pastors, ministers, foster parents, and adoptive parents about the vulnerability of children from hard places while offering practical steps and resources for them to provide trauma-informed care in their churches, ministries, and homes.

Virtual Gathering: Spiritual Warfare in Communities of Need

Virtual Gathering: Spiritual Warfare in Communities of Need

Pastor and ministers in communities of need are on the front-line of the battle against good and evil. “We are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). Our weapons of warfare are spiritual, and thus we must never forget the superpower we have!

Join us on November 14 when Pastor Charles Lyons, Pastor of Armitage Baptist Church in Chicago, IL, leads us in thinking about:

  • How does scripture prepare us to think about spiritual opposition in our ministries?

  • What are the marks of spiritual opposition?

  • What does “Physical Preparedness for Spiritual Battle” look like?

This virtual gathering will give courage to pastors and ministers serving in tough places by opening their eyes to see things unseen and to equip them to fight spiritual battles with spiritual weapons.

Charles Lyons, Pastor of Armitage Baptist Church in Chicago, IL

Charles Lyons, Pastor of Armitage Baptist Church in Chicago, IL

Charles W. Lyons has been the pastor of Armitage Baptist Church since 1974.

Charles preached his first sermon at age fourteen. At fifteen, he formed a small team with his brother and two friends and held services in Chicago rescue missions.

In 1974, Lyons graduated from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO.

That summer, a dying 25-member Armitage congregation called Lyons as their first full-time pastor at a $55 weekly salary.

Charles shared the vision of being a church of sufficient size and strength to impact Chicago with the message of hope in Jesus Christ.

In 1981, the church purchased a monstrous, decrepit 54,000 sq. ft. Masonic Temple in gang-ridden Logan Square neighborhood.

Today, Armitage is a dynamic, multicultural congregation with 35 ethnicities & nationalities represented, a constituency of 2,000, and property worth $10 million.

Charles and Georgia, his wife of 44 years, raised 5 children in what the Chicago Tribune called “the deadliest police beat in the country.”

Efforts to address a variety of urban and moral issues have been chronicled in secular and religious media.

The Chicago Tribune front page featured a story on Lyons and the Armitage ministry with the headline, “God’s Soldier Works the Gang Battlefield.”

Crain’s Chicago Business named Lyons under the banner, “Preachers to Seek Out in Chicago.”

A frequent speaker, lecturer at conferences, colleges, and seminaries on urbanology and urban ministry, he also mentors urban pastors and church planters.

On the occasion of the church’s 35th anniversary, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, wrote, “... you have turned Armitage Baptist Church from a small community of the faithful into one of our city’s most influential churches.”
