Leading with a Whole Heart

When: February 25, 2022, 9-11am
Location: Menlo Church, Menlo Park, CA

In this challenging season, it’s tempting to choose either “survival mode” or perhaps to look for ways to numb or escape. How can we lead with our whole selves, our whole hearts? How do we lead from a deep connection with God that animates all of who we are? Join us as we welcome Chuck DeGroat, author, seminary professor, pastor and therapist, for breakfast and a discussion of what it looks like to lean into Leading with a Whole Heart.

Last day to register is February 20th.

SoulCARE is a 9-month retreat based experience focused on bringing renewal and flourishing to the lives of pastors and nonprofit leaders.

SoulCARE Impact

More than 300 pastors and nonprofit leaders from throughout the Bay Area have participated in SoulCARE.

Leaders thrive when they experience an authentic, connected life with God.

Healthy leaders cultivate healthy churches and ministries that bless their communities.

SoulCARE offers pastors and nonprofit leaders a safe and accessible place– separate from the spaces in which they serve– where they can be honest about the challenges of spiritual leadership as well as the needs of their own souls.

SoulCARE offers a biblical, practical process that helps leaders nurture their life with God and lead in sustainable ways. 

The experience facilitates personal transformation, enabling people to lead effectively, authentically and joyfully in the communities to which they are called.

The heart of SoulCARE is rediscovery of God’s personal and generous love, and the joy-filled and abundant life offered in the kingdom of God.

SoulCARE is offered free of charge for participants as a metaphor for God’s lavish love.
