Many pastors are feeling challenged today. The stresses of leadership, the increasing need for multitasking and the difficulty to get church members involved. Additionally, the demands of everyday life and personal difficulties are leading to an increased prevalence of burnout, depression and other emotional conditions.
As a pastor, caring for your own mental and emotional well-being is often neglected in your selfless service to others. However, self-care is a good starting point to be able to care for the well-being of others and a necessary pursuit to be able to thrive in a long-term ministry.
“Strength to care” will teach you to care for yourself and your family. A deeper study into the caring ministry of Jesus with a health science perspective, will enable you to see church members and communities with new eyes and to gain a different approach to leadership & ministry.
With God’s help you can regain the strength and joy to care!
