From Pieces to Peace Conference


Trauma. Relational rupture. Spiritual brokenness. We’ve all experienced the painful fallout of sin in our souls, minds, and bodies.

Join us on May 4-5, 2018 at MPC for a special two-day conference addressing the pain, but more importantly the glorious reality of healing, belonging, and transformation through Jesus. This event is a unique opportunity for anyone who desires a more satisfying relationship with God and others, and who want to foster wholeness and spiritual maturity in the lives they touch.

Dr. Curt Thompson (psychiatrist and author, Anatomy of the Soul), Father Andrew Miller (LCSW and Founder, HeartSync Ministries), and David Takle (spiritual formation author of Forming: A Work of Grace) will each be presenting their unique angle on brokenness and restoration in soul, mind, and body. Some sessions will include practical hands-on exercises for connecting with God and others, plus a broader framework for trauma recovery, community integration and spiritual growth.



Curt Thompson, M.D., is a psychiatrist in private practice in Falls Church, Virginia and the founder of Being Known, LLC, and The Center for Being Known, an organization that develops resources to educate and train leaders about the intersection between interpersonal neurobiology, Christian spiritual formation, and vocational creativity.
