“What if there was a way for you to be a catalyst for your pastor or missionary to find that place of rest for the renewal of your church?”
Today’s shepherds (your pastors and missionaries) walk a rough and rocky road. There are battles with loneliness, expectations, fears, failures, and countless other stresses that take their toll. But for the joy of those they care for and the calling in their life; they press on. For many, finding the time or place to rest along the way can be frustrating and seem impossible. And yet, for the lack of rest, many are falling along the way discouraged and burned-out.
Unbelievable as it may seem, your pastor is human too. The fact that they preach, teach, pray and serve every day doesn’t mean they are immune from drifting in their relationship with Jesus. The demands of ministry often push out intimate relationship with Jesus Christ leaving many pastors feeling “burned out”. This is where the value of getting away to encounter Jesus Christ without the context of “ministry” can bring revitalization and renewed passion for Jesus first and foremost. Getting away to recharge should be a regular habit of your pastor’s schedule.
This is where we (you and S2S Ministries) come in. Your shepherd needs to know you are behind and supportive of them taking time to rest. As part of the body how has the Holy Spirit gifted you to minister to the body during your pastor’s absence?
In partnership with you, S2S Ministries seeks to network and provide facilities, properties, host couples and counsel to create an environment where your shepherd and their families can leave a busy schedule behind to rest.
