Event description
A one-day evangelical conversation for pastors and church teams and boards on leadership, burnout, and mental health.

About this Event

The church in North America has a crisis in church leadership on its hands. A recent Lifeway Research study revealed that the role of pastor can be challenging:’

• 84 percent say they’re on call 24 hours a day

• 80 percent expect conflict in their church

• 54 percent find the role of pastor frequently overwhelming

• 53 percent are often concerned about their family’s financial security

• 48 percent often feel the demands of ministry are more than they can handle

• 21 percent say their church has unrealistic expectations of them

And sometimes, these challenges lead our pastors to abandon the pastorate altogether. Of those who leave, conflict in the church, moral and ethical issues, and burnout account for 49 percent.

The GC2 Summit will be a time for pastors, church leadership teams, and lay Christians to come together to:

• Hear from other pastors addressing issues of burnout, mental illness, isolation, and stress

• Get tools to support you in building accountability and support, prayer, personal discipleship, and more

• Learn from top counselors addressing issues of taking care of the whole body, the dangers of mental illness and burnout, and developing boundaries to care for oneself and others well

• Engage with experts speaking on the tangibles of healthy leadership

• Receive prayer and personal support

The event is sponsored by the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and the School of Psychology, Counseling, and Family Therapy.
