2014 Workshop

Men's Ministry: Men in Grief - Somebody Do Something!


Men are different! Especially when it comes to grief. Death, divorce, unemployment, trauma all result in loss that cause some men to struggle. Many men live by the mantra "I just need to handle this on my own", but the truth is, we are not designed to walk this road alone. There are men in desperate need of someone to help them without emasculating them.

We will look at how to help men identify their loss and embrace their own grief process. When to step in and when to step aside. Most men don't know what they need and no two men ever seem to need the same thing. We will be discussing the need and how to meet it.

Co-presented with Kevin Lee.
