Self Care for Pastors:

  • Too Many Pastors are Falling on Their Own Swords  by Jakob Topper, Baptist News Global

    This pandemic is taking its toll on our clergy and church leadership.  The author of this article begins with ,“I was on a Zoom call recently with 10 pastors across three denominations, when one of the participants shared a struggle with suicidal thoughts in these challenging days. By the time the meeting concluded, four of the 10 had found the courage to admit their own suicidal ideations.”  Please know that our staff, the resources on these web pages, and our upcoming programs are here to help.
