In a culture where ministers are leaving the ministry in record numbers due to burnout, moral failure and lost passion, it only makes sense to offer resources that call for a rediscovery of who you are, what you value, and how you relate to others.
Research indicates the difference between failure and long-term effectiveness in ministry rests in the mastery of seven key areas of competency:
- Stress Management
- People Skills
- Leadership Skills
All seven of these concepts serve as the "foundational stones" for the Preventing Ministry Failure conference. Our time together will equip you with the skills necessary to sustain long-term effectiveness in ministry; turning common stumbling blocks into foundational stones for effective ministry.
A Preventing Ministry Failure conference isn't your ordinary leadership conference. Often pastoral seminars provide organizational principles that can lead a minister to ask questions like, "How can I use this information to help my congregation?" In contrast, this conference, based on the book by Michael Wilson and Brad Hoffman, is designed to restore your passion for ministry and give you a fresh perspective on your calling. A takeaway of this experience will be a focus on answering the question, "How can I apply these truths to myself to become a healthier, more effective leader?" It is our strong conviction that a healthy servant leader develops healthy congregations. You and your congregation will greatly benefit from your participation in this experience.
