Doug Reed: Shining a Beacon of Light on Mental Health

In the months leading up to the pandemic, the St. Andrew Methodist Church community in Plano experienced the loss of several young members who took their own lives. Instead of taking it on the chin, pastors and staff knew they had to respond proactively. Consequently, they launched Beacon of Light, a new mental health ministry that serves not only the church community, but all North Texas residents and other centers of faith.
