February 2016 Surge Lunch - Dr. Curt Thompson

What if you had a better understanding of how the human brain works?  How could that aid your pastoral ministry?

Christian leaders are responsible to shepherd, admonish, and encourage the people God has placed around them. From pastoral counseling, to creating and forming teams, to basic everyday discipleship, understanding how God designed the human brain to function is important for leaders seeking to care holistically for the people God has called them to serve.

Listen to the audio recording of February's Surge Lunch to hear Dr. Thompson explore the design of the human brain and discuss the role human relationship and community plays in helping believers to have a renewed and transformed mind.
