A must have for a healthy and effective youth ministry
We all know that burnout is a major reason churches post openings for new youth pastors every 18 months or so. Sadly, many of these men and women walk away from their jobs, their callings, and their passion because their interior worlds are falling apart. That's why Soul School is essential for developing an effective and healthy you (th) ministry.
Because while your ministry might look healthy to outsiders, only you know that something is lacking. You!
It's easy to get so busy caring for the external parts of your ministry that you forget the most important part-your soul. And it's only when you're truly connected to the Giver of Life that you can offer real hope and love to your students.
So spend some time going beneath the surface, to the core of who you are. In the pages of this book, you'll
. Learn to receive God's love and actually love yourself
. Understand how to live in grace
. Identify and destroy your idols
. Move away from false images of yourself and see
who you really are
. Discover how to live and thrive in your brokenness
. Discover the lost art of following
Each chapter includes practical exercises you can do on your own-offering you ways to internalize and personalize what you've just read.
Soul School will bring you nearer to God, into a deeper awareness of yourself, into transformational community, and on the road toward a healthier future.
