“This book, Fresh Hope, is a must read. This book is encouraging, explicit and resounding in truth. Begin your own journey and allow God to redeem your pain and suffering into trophies of His wonderful grace.”
Allen Lee Minnig, LCMPHP, CP
“Brad has provided a great resource for the faith community in their effort to serve those who struggle with mood disorders. As a ‘wounded healer,’ he has provided a theological framework and philosophy of ministry for the church in partnering with the medical community on behalf of those who live with a chemical imbalance.

“Brad’s story of recovery and growth brings hope to those who are not satisfied with merely coping with the challenges of a harsh medical diagnosis and medication. It is an invaluable resource for the church in coming alongside the millions in our communities who struggle with depression and anxiety.

“Brad’s story of integrating faith in his recovery will bring hope to all who battle with depression.”

Dr. Wendell Nelson, Pastor of Spiritual Formation Christ Community Church, Omaha, NE

“Fresh Hope is a FANTASTIC and much needed resource for the church! I particularly appreciate the emphasis on the wellness versus medical model, as it empowers us to be active participants in the pursuit of healing. I would have given anything to be part of a group like this years back. Now I am so excited to help bring this ministry to the Chicago area.”
Jon Press, MA Christian Education, Blogger for “bp” magazine

Each meeting is limited to the first 12 participants who register. These meetings are open to anyone - those with a mental health challenge, and for their loved ones.

Meetings are every Wednesday at 7:30 pm Central Standard Time.

After your one-time registration, you simply log in to the link provided each week to attend. Meetings are run through an online meeting site that requires your device (computer, tablet, phone) has a camera, microphone, and speakers to enable you to interact with other participants in the meeting.
