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-minutes 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 to fit your unique church community, creating a grief-informed culture and environment.

This complimentary 60-minute workshop includes:

  • Words that hurt and words that heal
  • What to say and what not to say
  • What is helpful action
  • Myths and facts about grief
  • Understanding what is going on in the griever’s mind
  • A care plan for the first year
  • Recognizing trigger days for the griever
  • How to use cards to care
  • How to create a grief ministry
  • Resources, tools and programs for grief support and recovery

This is my ministry and the way I give back. There is no charge, no strings attached. Together, we can help bring hope and comfort to the hurting.
