Hey there, I’m Laura Howe

I’m a mental health clinician and community development strategist for churches that want to care for their communities without burning out.

Supporting local church leaders to overcome and prevent burnout, create effective and sustainable care ministries and be a beacon of hope for their community is what I love to do!  

I believe that when church leaders are healthy and when congregations are healed and transformed, they are more able to fulfill the gospel mission.

My approach is ideal for leaders who: 

  • are frustrated with the relentless demand from people, yet lay awake at night with concern for their people’s needs.  
  • Dream of being a place of hope for those who are suffering in their community, but don’t know where to start.  
  • See their team unraveling and facing burnout at rates never imagined, and are motivated to be an active part in creating sustainable transformational for their team.

I would be honored to jump on a call with you to talk more about the Caring Church Review and how developing your church’s care ministry and preventing burnout in your teams can grow your church and expand your community influence.

“The concepts Laura explained were well articulated and practical.  The group project was time well spent, and gave us all practical ways to apply the word of God.”

“It was great to see relevant examples from the Bible of key people who fell easily (or were on the path to fall) into the trap of a cycle that would lead to burnout and anxiety.”

“Great pace!  The sessions flew by.  Laura has created interactive sessions that incorporated not just teaching, but practical activities, group discussions, and music.”
