Equipping The Church For Grief

Create a Grief-Informed Culture in Your Church Community

The pain of losing a loved one can take years to fade, and those stages of grief are often misunderstood. This is why I offer entirely complimentary 60-minute grief-management workshops for churches. This workshop will remove any awkwardness or apprehension when dealing with those who are grieving.

It’s my aim to equip church staff with all of the information, tools, and resources they need to compassionately minister to the grieving through their first year of grief and beyond. I will show you how to incorporate these methods of christian grief counseling to fit your unique church community, creating a grief-informed culture and environment.

What You Need To Know

This Complimentary 60-Minute Christian Grief Counseling Workshop Includes:

  • Words that hurt and words that heal
  • What to say and what not to say
  • What is helpful action

  • A care plan for the first year
  • Recognizing trigger days for the griever

Everyone needs to do this!”
