‘The Church and Mental Health’ Workshop

April 9, 2016 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


LCMS Life Ministry is hosting a symposium entitled “The Church and Mental Health” from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. The event will provide resources for congregations and pastors who are helping families navigate mental-health issues.

There is no cost to attend, and lunch is provided.

Join us as we begin the conversation about this topic, led by the following presenters:

  • Dr. Beverly Yahnke, executive director for Christian counsel, DOXOLOGY;
  • Rev. Todd Peperkorn, pastor of Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Rocklin, Calif.;
  • Rev. Jeffery Pflug, pastor of Faith Lutheran Church, Madison, Ind., and LCMS Disability Task Force member; and
  • Deaconess Dorothy Krans, director of LCMS Recognized Service Organizations and LCMS Disability Task Force member.

We hope this will provide a good starting point for families and congregations, and we look forward to starting a conversation that will extend beyond this one day.

For more information or to register, contact LCMS Life Ministry at 314-996-1711 or tracy.quaethem@lcms.org.
