TED Union Health Ministries Directors Summit

Health Ministries leaders attending TED meeting in Budapest.

On May 8-10, Union Health Directors from across the TED came together in Budapest to explore priorities, share ideas and resources, and make plans for comprehensive health ministry outreach in their territories. Dr. Torben Bergland, TED HM Director, shared the mission and vision for the TED HM department, and facilitated discussions on best practices, challenges, and opportunities within the territory. Mental health is a major focus of the strategic plan for the division, and Dr. Bergland reported on research results on burnout among pastors describing the rates and associated risk factors. The group decided to equip HM leaders through addictions prevention and recovery by hosting an ARMin training to be held in November in the Netherlands in collaboration with GCHM.
