A Note from Dr. Jen
Over one-third of us struggle with anxiety or depression, intensified by our polarized and unpredictable world.
What about faithful believers who suffer? They're often advised to "Pray more!"
Can God's Word and modern science offer insights to heal mental health conditions? That's why I organized the Jesus Psychology Summit.
Despite COVID, our enterprise thrived, providing relief to more people than ever. We've hosted 1000+ free group meetings, supported guests through Zoom, and received 2000+ coaching forms. In 2022, Abide Network trained 85+ coaches and held workshops for 300+ attendees. Now, we aim to bring our approach to in-person events for four transformative days.
