Church Health & Pastoral Wellness
Our District Office team, infrastructure, and resources exist to serve, encourage, bless, and lift the pastors, elder boards, and churches of our District so that they may move with vigor and effectiveness into their unique identity and mission in Jesus.
The Pacific District believes that healthy pastors make for healthy churches. Morris Dirks says, “Many leaders now realize that business as usual is not working – deep down inside something is missing. This sacred thirst is the beginning of a deeper intimacy with God. They are ready to shed old ways of being and explore new pathways of renewal that will form the soul. The time has come to assess the realities of ministry and take the journey toward spiritual wellness.”
In other words, nurturing emotional and spiritual health is essential to effective ministry. To that end, the CPD provides numerous resources & opportunities to help you grow, or in some cases, to even recover your joy, peace, and love for Christ & His work.
