Come hear from and to meet Dr. Chuck DeGroat acclaimed author of Leaving Egypt, Toughest People to Love, and Wholeheartedness: Busyness, Exhaustion, and Healing the Divided Self. Dr. DeGroat, theologian and psychologist at Western Seminary in Holland, MI is committed to spiritual and emotional formation for the sake of mission. He has participated in several church plants and has started two church-based clinical counseling centers. His academic specialization is in the intersection between psychology and the Bible.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, "Everyone who cares for the soul needs a person who will care for his or her own soul.” Pastors and therapists give themselves to others, but often do this to the neglect of their own spiritual and emotional needs. In this talk, we’ll look at three deeply biblical and psychological aspects of caregiver self-care - Developing Transparent Relationships, Cultivating Self-Awareness, and Exploring Your Story.
