Dr Spann at Thrive Worship

Speaker: Dr. Eric Spann


As we've mentioned the last couple of weeks, this week has been a great opportunity to hear from Dr. Spann as he speaks in our "Saved from Distress" series. Sunday will be a continuation of his presentation at Thrive from Thursday night. While it stands on its own, if you missed Thursday you can listen to the audio to hear a lot of his research info regarding stress. We have also created a download of Dr. Spann's presentation slides.


Many students also asked Dr. Spann about some of his influences so he provided a book list that he says changed both his life and his teaching. Here is his list.
