We have a mental health crisis in the church, and it's not just affecting our congregations—it's affecting our church leaders too.
As pastors, we often find ourselves running on empty. The pressure to be perfect is high, but being human means that perfection isn't possible. And when we're not perfect...we feel like failures.
Thrive & Cultivate provides an online summit for pastors and ministry leaders that will focus on both—the mental health of our church leaders as well as how we can help those around us who are hurting or suffering from depression or anxiety. It also includes resources to equip churches with the tools they need to care for their own communities and members while helping them live healthy lives themselves!
This FREE event will be exclusively online. All of the sessions will be available on-demand. This means that on May 21, you will have access to ALL the Day 1 sessions and can watch them in any order you like, any time of the day. On May 22, you'll get access to ALL of the Day 2 sessions. If you want to get access even after the event ends, check out our All Access Replay Pass.REGISTER NOW
