Statistics on vocational ministry indicate that nearly 90 percent of those who enter ministry will leave it before retirement. The reasons for leaving are many as they are complicated. Gracebridge Alliance believes this trend can be significantly changed by focusing attention on the least-cared for soul in today’s church: the leader’s own.
We provide a 2- 3 hour staff in-service for teams to explore and discuss how do we care for our own souls in the midst of ministry.
- We explore the markers of exhaustion, brown out and burn out.
- We discuss three vital pillars that support our own growth and transformation.
- We begin to look at and explore the interplay of seasons of life and seasons of ministry upon the ministry leader.
- We provide opportunity to follow-up and debrief personally with each member of the team.
