Six Weeks

Carving out time to help you fulfil your calling with strength and joy.

You’re the ministry worker, carrying the load and saving the day. You’ll do the hospitality, lead the study, be there at the hospital. You deal with ambivalent work structures, unrealistic expectations, housing issues, change and uprooting, heavy pastoral and crisis load, and work-life intrusions. Do we know your world? Yes we do, and we are qualified to help with support for pastors.

Paul says, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." (Gal 6:9). Note the call to not become weary. Obeying this Scripture also means to look after your physical and mental self, and having time to rest, restore and reconnect with your mission.

In Shepherding the Shepherd we work with you over six weeks based on our firsthand knowledge of what supports ministry resilience. You'll do a selfcare audit, assessing what’s depleting your energy and what fills you up. We'll help you create new rhythms and routines and dig deep into physical and spiritual resourcing for resilience. You will then be resourced to tend to others with joy and strength while also—importantly—tending to you.
