Join us for the 2nd annual Building the Resilient Church Conference

Trauma, addiction & mental illness affect EVERYONE. It is the leading cause of years of life lost, exceeding cancer and heart disease combined. The faith community has begun to respond and an impact has been made, but these issues still remain the greatest silent epidemic of modern society. Please join us!
