Congregational Well-Being Programs
Faith community leaders are frequently asked to provide a response to an immediate concern. Our classes, workshops, seminars and retreats are carefully constructed with the particular needs of the specific faith community in mind. In consult with faith community leaders Congregational Well Being Programs are created to answer the immediate questions like “my spouse of 45 years died, I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning”, “I’m afraid our teenage son is using drugs”, “all we seem to do anymore is fight all of the time- do I still love my spouse?” Congregational Well Being Programs incorporated into the life cycle of a faith community are preventative in nature, encouraging participants to explore their concerns, their questions, and their hopes in a context of care and support.
