What's Happening

Wellness is knowing who you are and remembering whose you are. You are invited to explore where God is nudging you to attend to your own well-being.

Based on the research of best-selling author and researcher, Dr. Brené Brown, this retreat will empower you to more effectively handle stressful situations, understand the dynamics of conflict, and create resiliency in handling the ups and downs of ministry leadership.

Formerly known as the ELCA Head of Staff event, this event is now for all leaders.

Words of Wisdom to Help You Be Well from Tammy Devine, the ELCA Wellness Manager. Tammy's monthly column invites you to consider how your faith and health are intertwined.

Helping people renew their callings from God ... empowering them to live a life of meaning and purpose in their 3rd Chapter of Life.
