Our primary purpose at Strength to Strength is to strengthen the emotional health of churches, her leaders and her people.


Too often emotional health is the Achilles’ heel of the church. It’s tough enough to be the church at the best of times but when people haven’t learnt how to take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ, it undermines a leader’s role and dramatically reduces the effectiveness of the church. 


“The local church is the hope of the world” (Bill Hybels), so she needs to be as healthy as she can be in order to be as effective as she can be.


“It’s impossible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature.” Peter Scazzero


The unseen forces in our emotional world have the power to undermine and suffocate our life.


It's our aim to strengthen the local church to be her best.  We do this by working with individual churches to provide the specific support and training they need.  This may take the form of: consultations, supervision, team training, seminars, Strengths Finder for both individuals and teams, pastoral care input, talks and sermons


Church leaders are only just beginning to become aware of the importance of taking their own emotional health, as well as their church’s, seriously. Interestingly, there is a strong connection between the emotional health of church leadership and the health and effectiveness of the church.

We would love to be of service to your church. To explore what this would mean for you, please feel free to call us or send us an email.
