    Laughing & Lasting in Ministry

    <em><strong> A life of ministry is never boring, and is packed full of purpose; but even the most passionate leader has contemplated quitting-or at least redefining our leadership roles. In this course, you’re invited to dig a little deeper into what it really takes to last through the demands of ministry life, and to stay true to the unique purpose that God designed within you. You are more than your title or your tasks, and your ability to endure is less a conversation about character and more a conversation about coping with the experiences and emotions that you face. This course on laughing and lasting in ministry will create interactive space for you to: Evaluate Theological Concepts for Personal Sustainability, Understand the Components of Clergy Well-being and Consider the Benefits of Well-being for our own contexts.
