Big Sigh Ministries announces 2018 events

January 10, 2018

All too often, renewal leaves are not sought by clergy or their district leaders until a pastor enters a crisis situation.  We at Big Sigh Ministries are changing the conversation from “burnout crisis” to “prevention and ministry resilience” with our GRACE BREAK program. Through this informative program, we help clergy dream and plan ahead for renewal leaves; we educate church Staff and Pastor Parish Relations Committees as to the unique, numerous stressors clergy face, the real threat of compassion fatigue to clergy, as well as the win-win benefits that occur when a pastor takes renewal time away and returns refreshed, renewed, rested and re-connected with God.
