Soul Shop

The Soul Shop™ Movement exists due to the need of desperately hurting people to be heard, noticed, and seen within their faith communities. Soul Shop™ provides training and support to faith community leaders. At any given time, 1 in 17 adults (according to Living Works) and 1 in 6 youth (CDC Report) are considering suicide.

Suicide reaches into people’s lives in multiple ways: through the death or suicide attempt of a loved one, through their own former or current suicidal thinking, or through worries about others going through hard times. At this moment, 1 out of 2 people in most congregations are personally impacted by the reality of suicide. Many congregations experience deaths to suicide among their own members, skyrocketing the impact to 100% of the congregation.

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. With them, we hope to catalyze regional networks that create soul safe communities.
