Managing your mental health in ministry
Ministry is a privilege, an honour to be called by God to such a task. But let's face it, we also bring ourselves to the task. In each of us there are great giftings and abilities, passions and strengths that fit our calling to love, care, shepherd and teach the people in our congregations. We come with our past and any unresolved issues and difficulties as well. That's the honest truth. We ALL have a shadow side, you know that part of us God is still refining or we are keeping him from exposing -- even though it eventually gets exposed anyway.
Ministry also comes with its struggles, some extremely intense and difficult moments, even trauma. It can be hard on a pastor and their family. Unmanaged stress can lead to burnout, depression, anxiety and other mental and health disorders.
Agora Network Ministries is here to help and support. You can't do it alone, nor should you. Let us come along side you in your journey to wholeness and healing.
