Event description

Description

Increasingly, churches and church leaders are recognizing the hazards of ceaseless ministry, and the ancient idea of a sabbath rest is being recovered by many churches. There are, however, challenges to overcome for a ministry sabbatical to be effective – both for the church and its pastor. This workshop from the Wahl Centre will address these challenges.

You can experience a life-transforming and ministry-renewing sabbatical by carefully planning to address such issues as the theology of rest, the development of a sabbatical plan, church leadership during the sabbatical, sabbatical timing and duration, evaluation and transparency/accountability, and much more.

Rev. Sam Nikkel and the Healthy Pastors team are passionate about serving those in pastoral ministry. Workshop sessions will cover the theological basis for rest and explore practical issues that need to be addressed. Topics will also include the common pitfalls of ministry, such as isolation and stress, and focus on some best practices to foster long-term ministry health.
