Mental Health Sermon Series & Discussion
David Bartley is a nationally recognized speaker, writer, and trainer on the topic of mental health. His 2108 TEDx Talk on the power of connection chronicles the moment he decided to commit suicide and what saved him from the black monster of depression. He has been invited to speak before a wide range of audiences across the country, giving keynote speeches and leading workshops on the topics of mental health, employee engagement, student wellbeing, and congregational care.
David will preach at both services and there will be a workshop with David Woods Bartley and Lee Erikson at noon to discuss mental health. Join us in the Fireside Room for the discussion.
