A Healthy Pastor
“When both clergy and congregation embrace the value of the health of the pastor in all dimensions of life, rather than seeing ministry as spirituality and service compartmentalized into a job, the effort will bear fruit not only in the life of the pastor but in the life of a faithful congregation.” – Rev. Scott Morris, MD
Taking care of yourself is part of taking care of the ministry
A pastor has emotional highs and lows unlike most other vocations. Pastors who’s churches encourage sabbaticals are much more likely to stay healthy and stay with the church.
