Need a Lift?
- 80% of pastors feel unqualified and discouraged in their role as a pastor
- 50% of pastors are so discouraged that they would leave the ministry if they could, but have no other way of making a living.
- 70% of pastors constantly fight depression
- 80% of seminary and Bible school graduates who enter the ministry will leave the ministry within the first 5 years.
It’s clear that something must be done to help pastors. Thankfully, the Willow Creek Association is offering some great new tools to help.
The Lift Project is a unique blend of online training, coaching and community to help pastors navigate the issues that they face today.
- 7 week courses
- Less than 2 hours per week
- Guided by a facilitator
- Interaction with a cohort of leaders
- Year-long Leading for Transformation Certificate
The list of names associated with these courses is impressive to say the least. This looks like an ongoing conference with continuing coaching and small group community added to the mix. There are several seven week courses to choose from.
This could be a real lifesaver for many pastors.
