Hope Always: How to Be a Force for Life in a Culture of Suicide
with Matthew Sleeth
April 14, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
The Center for Leadership Excellence invites you to a webinar on faith and suicide with Matthew Sleeth…
Every single day, someone you know is thinking about committing suicide. It isn’t just one or two—ten million Americans will consider killing themselves in the upcoming year. ER physician and pastor Dr. Matthew Sleeth believes Christians—and our churches—should be the first to offer hope. Are we prepared to do so?
In this webinar, Dr. Sleeth shares a biblical worldview of suicide and offers practical tools church and lay leaders can immediately deploy to become part of the solution to our suicide crisis. Jesus made no distinction between healing physical and mental diseases. As our brother’s (and our sister’s) keeper, we are called to follow Christ’s example and do likewise.
