“To me, one of the saddest things is when people dealing with emotional pain make a step toward God by knocking on the door of a church and it doesn’t go well.”
Over the past several years, we have heard from Christian leaders all over the globe: “we feel ill-equipped to handle the issues of mental health in our churches and we need a simple program to help.”
That is why I created Churches That Heal: an all-new, digital program designed to equip pastors and churches to handle issues of mental health in their communities through a biblical and psychologically-sound plan of healing. Although this program was in the works long before we knew about COVID-19, the opportunity for the Church to engage in mental health conversations is unprecedented and never been needed more.
We’ve also seen the toll this season has had on pastors, as well. The widespread stress, the burnout and the public failures of pastors has made me sad and led me to also create a special track just for the healing of pastors’ hearts.
Churches That Heal is the culmination of my life’s work in the arena of mental health and the next step in my desire to help ensure the local church is the best place for hurting people to find healing. I’m honored to share this new program with you and link arms as we build a Church that hurting people run to, not away from.
I pray the local church becomes a beacon for healing in communities all around the world and that every church will become a church that heals.
