How to Flourish as a Pastor for the Long Haul

Honestly now, do you ever think about quitting? Have you ever wondered if you misunderstood God’s call to ministry or if you just aren’t cut out to be a pastor?

If any of that sounds familiar, please know that you are not alone. This seminar provides practical help with clarifying our main priorities, surviving seasons of betrayal and disappointment, and learning to serve the Lord with true joy.
