We will address simple and Biblical means of relieving pressure in order to carry out pastoral responsibilities in a manner that is both life-giving to those we serve and honoring to God. If you feel burdened and overwhelmed, you are not alone—and there is help and hope awaiting you!
This workshop will explore how to maintain the shepherding value in a church culture that expects corporate productivity. This seminar will affirm the biblical standard for pastoral ministry and offer insight on how to maintain this standard at all levels of leadership.
