We are excited to announce our York, Pennsylvania event. This gathering is long overdue and we can’t wait to see what God is going to do.

Dear Friend:

Imagine church members, pastors, small group leaders, counselors, mental health advocates, coaches, crisis responders, chaplains and more coming together to have a new conversation and jointly learn about “Mental Health and the Mission of the Church.”

One thing is certain—the struggle of dealing with the pain, pace and pressure of everyday life is real. Everyone has something they need to deal with and find victory over.
The Church needs to be at the center of bringing hope and healing to those seeking help and direction with life’s most difficult issues and challenges.

Don’t miss “The Struggle is Real” Church, Mental Health and Counseling (CMHC) 2018 Summit as we address Mental Health and the Mission of the Church together. Packed full with pre-conference workshops, dynamic plenary sessions featuring some of the world’s leading experts, and engaging workshops built around eight tracks, this event will teach us how to care for people God’s way.

Prepare to be encouraged, educated, equipped and empowered in our time together.

CE credits are available for mental health professionals. The best news—the event will be held in York, Pennsylvania, May 4-5, at Grace Fellowship.

We hope you will join us!
