You're Invited to the Online Marriage Retreat

ministry Sep 23, 2020

Over the past few months it has been sad to hear about friends and their marriages falling apart coming out of this pandemic that we are all navigating. After hearing some of the statistics, I reached out to my friend, Dr. Kim Kimberling, and asked if he would allow me to partner with him and the Awesome Marriage team to host an Online Marriage Retreat. I'm thankful that he didn't hesitate and they have sure put together an incredible lineup of speakers! 

I hope you will take a minute to check out the website and will consider investing in your own marriage or someone else's by gifting a retreat for them.

You're Invited to the Online Pastors' Retreat

ministry Sep 21, 2020

The past 6 months have brought about more than any of us could have ever imagined. Communities have been shaken and people have looked to their pastors for some kind of peace in the midst of the storm. Pastors have had to carry a weight through this season trying to figure out how to do ministry differently while trying to shepherd their congregation when they can't even see them face to face. 

I recently heard some recent statistics about depression rates, abuse rates, divorce rates and suicide rates over the past 4 months. It's devastating. 

That's why I reached out to my friends at Key Ministry to create the Online Pastors' Retreat. We want to help pastors get mentally healthy themselves as well as give practical insights into how to support their congregation around mental health. We've brought together some of the leading voices in this space like Kay Warren of Saddleback Church, Pete Scazzero of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, Greg Surratt of Seacoast Church,...
