  Trinity Programs to Equip the Church

For many years, we have been sought by the the faith community
to help equip members for greater success in growing spiritually,
healing emotionally, and more powerfully sharing the Love of Christ.

By combining a depth of psychological understanding with our insights
gained by personal experiences as church leaders,
we have developed
highly regarded 
retreats such as...

  • "Men@Work": helping men grow in spiritual and emotional maturity, and in their relationships
  • "Love in Action for the Body of Christ: Transforming the Church into a Community of Compassion" 
  • "Conflict Management in the Body of Christ: Achieving the Jesus Agenda"

  • "Journey into Love: Building Better Relationships! ( for engaged and married couples)
  • The Journey into Love is also available as digital multimedia experience. Visit www.JourneyIntoLove.com                                                                                          

  Support for Pastors

Dr. Grebe and Tim Strauss share the same
heart for pastors. Having served as elders in their own churches,
and having had the privilege of counseling many pastors and
their families, they understand the enormous challenges that
clergy face in their calling. While seminary offers basic training in
pastoral care and bibilcal knowledge, there is little to prepare pastors
to manage the complex and emotionally loaded people-problems that arise
in the church family. 

Trinity Associates have developed great resources and services to help equip clergy to
face these challenges
, such as...

  • Free consultation on difficult pastoral case situations to help plan wise and effective interventions for parishioners
  • Personal and confidential therapy designed to help relieve the unique and chronic stress that pastors face
  • Marital therapy attuned to the special demands of ministry on the family: to heal, protect, and foster your marriage
  • Confidential consultations to examine critical church issues and help you prepare the leadership
    strategies that produce effective resolutions, healthier church relationships, and good personal mental health.
