Erica St. Bernard, Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist, Macedonian Ministry Cohort Facilitator, Washington, D.C.
Erica, why did you say, “Yes!” to being the Facilitator of this cohort?
“I accepted the invitation to be the Facilitator for this cohort in order to create safe and sacred space for clergy men and women to explore and discuss how life within and beyond ministry impacts us and those we serve. It is my hope that our time together yields authentic, life-long, faith building connections that benefit us and those we’re connected to for years to come.”
