The past 6 months have brought about more than any of us could have ever imagined. Communities have been shaken and people have looked to their pastors for some kind of peace in the midst of the storm. Pastors have had to carry a weight through this season trying to figure out how to do ministry differently while trying to shepherd their congregation when they can't even see them face to face.
I recently heard some recent statistics about depression rates, abuse rates, divorce rates and suicide rates over the past 4 months. It's devastating.
That's why I reached out to my friends at Key Ministry to create the Online Pastors' Retreat. We want to help pastors get mentally healthy themselves as well as give practical insights into how to support their congregation around mental health. We've brought together some of the leading voices in this space like Kay Warren of Saddleback Church, Pete Scazzero of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, Greg Surratt of Seacoast Church, Dr. Jack Graham from Prestonwood Baptist Church and so many more experts and leaders.
