    Laughing & Lasting in Ministry

    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. Much of the content of this course is provided through The Flourishing In Ministry Project, Mendoza School of Business at Notre Dame.

    The Uniqueness & Danger of Ministry

    The uniqueness and danger of ministry can often produce desert-like feelings, where we seek an oasis as a respite from the stress of our calling. Dramatic emotional swings are intrinsic to ministry duties such as baby dedications and funerals on the same day, first responder realities with vicarious secondary stress, and a margin less 24/7 demand, all cry for an oasis. Join Dr. Hall as he exposes the ministry’s uniqueness and danger while offering strategies to embrace that same uniqueness while mitigating the danger positively.
