Forest, Va. — The American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) will host its New Life Summit in Charlotte, North Carolina November 2-3. The two-day event will focus on mental health and the church with a special emphasis on marriage and family issues. Also, in light of recent major hurricanes and flooding in the southeast, the AACC will offer preconference and conference workshops focused on the church’s role in healing after natural and manmade disasters.
Nearly 500 Christian mental health leaders, pastors, coaches, lay helpers, concerned family members and community leaders will join together to hear from plenary speakers such as Dan Seaborn, Gregory Jantz, Ron Deal, Leslie Vernick, Doug Rosenau, Ron Hawkins, D. Frederica Brooks-Davis, Sharon May, Sylvia Frejd and AACC President Tim Clinton.
In addition to the plenary sessions, attendees will choose between eight conference tracks, each with its own complement of workshops: Love, Sex and Relationships; Pre-marital Counseling and Marriage Enrichment; Family Health and Parenting; Child and Adolescent Issues; Couples in Crisis, Relationship Conflict, and Marital Recovery; Helping in the Local Church and Community; Mental Health, the Brain and Disorders; and Grief, Trauma and Loss.
