Fri, 13 January 2017, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EST
More and more, men and women in ministry are discouraged, running on empty, and overwhelmed by the realities of ministry. If that’s you, you need to come to this event.
Join us for a day of refreshment, guided dialogue, and reflection that will leave you encouraged and rested.
- Gain strategies to avoid and manage stress, burnout, cynicism, and work-family imbalances
- Learn frameworks and practices to integrate spiritual life with everyday life
- Participate in guided prayer and reflective activities
- Come and be prayed for; leave feeling encouraged and re-affirmed in your vital work and calling
