Breakfast Seminar Series
Bright Tomorrows offers a FREE bi-monthly "breakfast seminar" to pastors and/or ministers (professional and lay leaders). These seminars are designed to bring them together with clinically-trained counterparts to discuss mental health related topics.

Bright Tomorrows is aware that ministry leaders tend to be the "first-responders" to individuals and families in crisis. Often mental health concerns, inclusive of illness, caregiving challenges and stresses are brought to their doorsteps.

Bright Tomorrows recognizes the congregant's need for continuing pastoral care and presence as they work through their suffering of crisis, grief and loss towards a healing-recovery lifestyle.

To receive bi-monthly invitations advising you of date, time, location and topic by way of email, go to our Contact Page and send us an email request.

Tim's deep faith, infectious sense of humor and naturally exuberant personality are a constant reminder that though illness is a serious subject, it is not without hope and even humor."
