*Attention: 2nd Widow Widower Retreat – Aug 2-3, 2019 @ The LaVergne Church of Christ*

More details coming soon!

Welcome to this website. Feel free to click on any or all the options to learn more about this ministry. Various kinds of workshops are now being scheduled for the 2019 and 2020 calendar years.

Ignorance and inexperience with grief, especially that which accompanies the loss of a mate, makes it difficult (if not impossible) to minister effectively to those trying to live after loss. These workshops raise awareness about the impact of loss. Hopefully, with informed insight people will be better prepared for the experience and more capable servants of those left behind.  


About 800,000 people every year enter the experience of widowhood in the United States.  Somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 million citizens are either widows or widowers. Maybe we need to address this issue, don’t you think?

The subject may not be in our comfort zone but we need to think about it, study about it, and talk about it.  Why?  The co-authors of Getting to the Other Side of Grief (Overcoming the Loss of a Spouse) observe, “…those who have never been widowed barely have a clue to what the process is really like.”  Widowhood Workshop is a ministry attempting to raise awareness about this life experience.

It was birthed in the grief journey of Dean Miller, a minister in the Lord’s church who lost his wife in 2013.  It is a flexible workshop that can be tailored to a church or organization’s schedule and purposes for hosting it.
