Workshop 1: Mental Health Ministry
Saturday, Nov. 4
9:30 am–12:30 pm
How can Christian communities develop ministries that support 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.
