“There is no more complex, demanding, and diverse role in society today than that of a pastor.” (Tom Berekoff, M.A., CFRE, November 2019 . . . pre-COVID!)
In March when life began to slow down for many, ministry life for pastors became more complex, demanding, and diverse. Today, many are experiencing a heightened sense of care for parishioners, a frustrated calling, a tension between love for the church and soul weariness, the strain of self and ministry-imposed expectations, non-stop pivoting, challenging ministry decisions, gifting dissonance, accentuated stress, limited vacation and sabbath options, and significant scrutiny. Not unlike frontline health care workers, spiritual rest and renewal are necessary PPE’s for pastors.
Fairhaven Ministries is focused on encouraging the health and renewal of Christian leaders, and in these challenging and uncertain times, they have created a package for pastors and ministry leaders.
This package is priced at $500 per leader and includes:
- Five nights in one of Fairhaven’s well-appointed cottages
- Two hours of counselling/coaching (optional)
- Unhurried, unplugged rest and spiritual refreshment
Dates are available from October 5-December 21, 2020 and January 4-April 5, 2021. Additional nights and counselling/coaching are available at their regular rates.
