"I am learning so much. I went in not even totally sure what all was included in Care Ministry! The information I have gained has not only improved what I'm already doing (especially Benevolence), but will also greatly inform what we create in the future!"
Shannon Pugh, Pastor of Care and Special Needs
"It has given us practical steps to be aware of our stresses, anxieties and concerns. It has allowed us (given us permission) to see some of the weight that we feel as valid. It has given us language with which to speak to each other and those we serve with greater emotional intelligence and empathy."
Matt Loveday, Pastor of Family Ministries
"Hope Made Strong provided us with practical, sustainable strategies for our care ministry. It's been transformative!"
Pastor, Life Church International
"Laura's experience and approach helped us navigate the challenges of church leadership without burning out."
