Reignite Your Passion
for missionary discipleship so that you can live purposefully and minister fruitfully.
As we juggle the demands of ministry, family, and the rest of life, it can be easy to start feeling like the “hamster on the wheel” running faster and faster yet not accomplishing anything, much less living with purpose. In this session, we’ll step off the wheel, reflect on what matters most in our lives, and learn a process to align our lives to the deep purpose God has planted in us.
Featuring Coach and previous diocesan director Kathy Goller
We minister from who we are.
Ministry leaders who are tired, overwhelmed,
or stretched too thin may begin to reflect scarcity and resentment in ministry instead of abundance and generosity, and they are more likely to leave their ministry roles.
However, using the REALIFE Process, we can disrupt this unhealthy pattern and help these leaders:
•gain clarity about their needs, values, gifts, and priorities
•make progress on important projects
•plan their time purposefully for greatest impact
•sustain this new pattern of living with a process, tools, and spiritual practices
