Soul Shop will be coming to Cleveland, to our own Presbytery’s Church of the Covenant, on Saturday, March 17!

Soul Shop for Leaders is a one-day training to equip faith community leaders (including clergy and lay leaders) to minister to those impacted by suicidal desperation. This event includes the creation of a worship resource, training congregation members in suicide awareness and basic conversation skills and the invitation to those who have been suicidal in the past to share their stories.


The Soul Shop Movement exists due to the need of desperately hurting people to be heard, noticed, and seen within their faith communities. At any given time, 1 in 17 adults (according to Living Works) and 1 in 6 youth (CDC Report) are considering suicide. Soul Shop recognizes that most congregations are not equipped to adequately respond to this need.


As a result, we seek to equip congregations in responding to desperation. Join us at the Church of the Covenant, 11205 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, Ohio, 44106, on Saturday, March 17 from 8:30 am until 4 pm. Cost of the event is $20. Please RSVP here. More information is available at the Soul Shop website.
