Self Care for Ministry Leaders

Health is the most important factor in the effectiveness of pastors, staff, and ministry leaders. Health does not happen by accident; it takes intention and action. Self-care is difficult for leaders, especially in ministry settings, but your effectiveness and longevity depend on it. As a leader, your health should come first because healthy leaders are thriving leaders.

In this seminar we will explore the nature and challenges of self-care for leaders as well as the seven habits of healthy leaders. We will engage in various small, large, and individual group activities. You will leave encouraged, refreshed and equipped for sustainable self-care in every season of ministry.
