Sunday does come around with amazing regularity, doesn't it?

As a pastor, you face a never-ending to-do list:

  • There is always going to be somebody else to reach for Christ.
  • There is always going to be somebody else to disciple in Christ.
  • There is always going to be another budget issue.
  • There is always going to be another meeting.
  • There is always going to be another pastoral care visit.

As long as you are in ministry, there is always going to be something to do.

As pastors we can stay at our desks 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and it's never going to ALL get done. Our to do lists are never ending. Expectations are always expanding. The email box is always full. The phone is always ringing.

Jesus said, "In this world you will have trouble," and pastors are on the front lines. This ongoing stress can be a discouraging reality - IF you don’t have a way to manage it.

If left unchecked, stress can impede your life and ministry and derail your health, relationships and emotional well-being.

Pastor and church growth strategist Nelson Searcy has been on this journey of stress management for over 30 years. He experiences the stresses of ministry first-hand – and wants to help you take control TODAY through 10 best practices that he uses in daily ministry.

You’ll fully engage with this three-hour seminar as Nelson shares his secrets of stress management with practical steps and insights that you can start implementing immediately!

No matter what your current stress level is at, you’ll have the tools you need to manage it effectively and have a greater impact on the Kingdom work you are called to do!
