Science for the Church invites presbytery and church leaders in the Synod of the Covenant and any other interested church leaders to join us for a three-part webinar series on how the church might better understand and address our current mental health crisis.
March 9: Science for the Church’s co-Director, Drew Rick-Miller, will evaluate research to answer the question, Does Our Faith Make Us Well? as he considers the ways church, religious practice, and our Christian faith promote (or not) mental and physical health.
March 16: Psychologist David Wang, Fuller Seminary’s Cliff and Joyce Penner Chair for the Formation of Emotionally Healthy Leaders, will address mental health and the wellbeing of Christian leaders.
March 23: Churches and mental health providers that have effectively offered services to their congregations and communities will share models, insights, and best practices on how partnerships between mental health professionals and the church can better confront this crisis.
All registrants will receive a bibliography of science-related resources on faith and mental health (articles, books, videos, podcasts) as well as Science for the Church’s weekly newsletter.
