StoryWagen is the brainchild of Chaplain Jose Martinez, Associate Minister at New Church Ministry. The organization serves as a mobile resource and listening center focused on spiritual health.

The organization’s goal is to provide free resources about issues such as grief, moral injury, shame, guilt, and other spiritual health issues that affect the mental health of individuals, community groups, and faith communities. In addition to offering resources, StoryWagen serves as platform for community members who want to share their story. They ensure they are providing a safe space when doing so by meeting people where they are at and giving these storytellers an opportunity to be heard without judgment or shame.

Aligned with the mission of NBA, StoryWagen is an organization that equips faith communities with the knowledge and resources necessary to provide emotionally healthy environments.

“We feel very honored to join the NBA family through the Incubate partnership program,” Martinez says. “We hope through this partnership that we are further able to empower churches, neighborhood associations, and other community groups to provide compassionate spiritual support and holistic care to their communities.”
