In Luke 24:13-35, we read of two downcast disciples who encounter Jesus on the road to Emmaus. This picture of Jesus walking alongside his disciples amidst their grief and sorrow serves as inspiration for the Alongside Monthly Donor Club.

I was drawn to The Sanctuary Course as it allowed me to explore different facets of mental health in the Christian context. Though I’ve never been shy about my struggles with anxiety, I felt somewhat alone and that I could only talk about struggles that I had overcome with my church community. What I love about this course is how open and honest it was about the existence of mental illnesses in the church. [...] It also helped to affirm the things that God has taught me through my own mental health journey, that these struggles don’t hinder faith, but can instead strengthen it.
"Your ministry is one of the first ministries that, within the Church, makes me feel understood and not like I have to hide or simplify my mental health for anyone, but I can be me and the way that God sees me, loves me, and supports me, and with language that is easily understood."
"This course has truly been an answer to prayer. Not only is it helping me to educate my church family on a topic very close to my heart, but it is also encouraging me to be more intentional about advocating for mental health within the larger body of Christ."
