Mental Health Ministry Workshop
How can Christian communities develop ministries for supporting members who struggle with mental illness?
Rooted in lived experience, story, and the biblical narrative, this workshop will examine the need for mental health ministries in churches, the process of forming mental health ministries, and the benefits these ministries bring to the church and the wider community. We will engage with stories of individuals who have championed mental health ministries in their churches, giving special focus to the remarkable journey of Cedar Park Church in Ladner. Come prepared to think about your own church context and the next steps God might be leading you to take.
About the Sanctuary Mental Health Workshop Series
Last year, Regent College partnered with Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries to offer our first series of workshops on faith and mental health at Regent. Due to overwhelmingly positive response, we are offering a second series of workshops this year.
This is the first of three workshops focusing on ministry and mental health. While each session stands alone, the sessions are complementary and participants are strongly encouraged to attend all three if possible. The second and third workshops will be held in Winter 2018, dates TBD.
