Ep11 Triage on the Great Pastoral Resignation, Pt2

Publish date: December 30, 2022

In episode 11, the SHE-Team picks up where we left off in Part 1 of the Great Pastoral Resignation, offering advice and wisdom on how to do triage to provide care for your pastor. We get super practical with suggestions for church boards and congregants in how they might fulfill their responsibility to care for their pastor. And then we draw on our own ministry experiences and drop a few gems of wisdom for pastors who long to build a life of resilience and longevity in congregational ministry. One more thing: if you are a regular listener, join our fB page called the SHEcclesiology Listener Community for updates and other conversations. If Instagram is more your thing, follow us at SHEcclesiology. Alright, let’s jump in!
