Dino Rizzo Recaps the Nothing is Wasted Healing Leadership Roundtable

Dino Rizzo Recaps the Nothing is Wasted Healing Leadership Roundtable

PR Newswire

Dino Rizzo, a 35-year ministry veteran and the co-founder of Healing Place Church, is excited to recap a very successful first iteration of the Nothing is Wasted healing leadership roundtable.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Pastor Dino Rizzo, a 35-year ministry veteran and co-founder of Healing Place Church, recently hosted a leadership roundtable for churches nationwide. In conjunction with Nothing is Wasted and ARC (Association of Related Churches), the roundtable focused on helping equip church leaders with a holistic approach to healing their church community.

"Today is a critical time in Church history," Pastor Dino Rizzo said. "People are suffering from anxiety, depression, and overall mental 'unhealth' at rates never seen before. If left unaddressed, all this pain and trauma can have a paralyzing effect on people and the Church at large."

Mental health has long been an issue, but it really came to the forefront during the COVID-19 pandemic. The effects of unexpected tragedies, family issues, medical challenges, and much, much more can become debilitating if not addressed properly.

Luckily, dealing with mental health issues has become less "taboo" than it was in the past, providing churches with ample opportunities to offer support to community members who are suffering.

This is why the Nothing is Wasted leadership roundtable, called "The Healing Leader," was created. Pastor Dino Rizzo explains that the one-day event featured speakers such as Ken Roberts, Davey Blackburn, and Kevin Myers, all of whom shared unique perspectives on healing, dealing with tragedy, and how to move forward.

Dino Rizzo has served in many different roles in ministry. In addition to co-founding Healing Place Church with his wife DeLynn, he also serves as the executive director of ARC (Association of Related Churches).

He also founded Servolution and wrote the book, "Serve Your City."

Through all these roles, Dino Rizzo has seen many pastors, church leaders, and lay people experience pain that they've had trouble dealing with.

And, like many of these people, he has also experienced pain in his own story. Among his many passions, Dino Rizzo wishes to see all pastors thrive as they seek to help their congregants live on mission.

United Church in Milford, Delaware, was the host of the first event in the series, at which more than 150 pastors and leaders from all over the East Coast attended. Following the event, church leaders said:

"There is no doubt that today, pastors and leaders are left ready to not only address the pain of their people but help them journey toward healing and restoration through Pain to Purpose. Join us as we pray for each of these leaders as they bring the healing message of Pain to Purpose to their churches, schools, and organizations."

Future Nothing is Wasted leadership roundtable events are scheduled for October 3 at Radiant Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; October 5 at Rising Sun Church of Christ in Pleasant Hill, Iowa; and November 2 at Waymaker Church in Forest, Virginia.
