The resources on this page will be useful for starting a congregational Care Committee for Called Workers (CCCW) and for building loving, caring relationships with your called workers and their families. A detailed overview of the work of a Care Committee for Called Workers, called the “CCCW Quick Start” can be downloaded below.
The “Care to Care Manual” and video explain the work and provide sample questions to use in interviews with called workers. Three kinds of interviews are included: when a new called worker arrives, when the called worker is interviewed annually, and when the called worker transitions to a new call or to retirement. View the video here. A DVD of this video can be ordered from Special Ministries.
“Care to Plan” materials provide CCCW teams with resources to encourage called workers to prepare for retirement, or at least be informed about the resources available to them. “Care to Plan for Called Worker Retirement” will help the CCCW team, or another appropriate group, prepare to discuss retirement resources available to called workers. “Retirement Guide” is a resource that the CCCW can give called workers to inform them about the resources.
