Folks, last reminder for those of you in the Philadelphia area. On March 20, 2009 we will be hosting a pastoral health conference at the seminary from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. The conference is entitled:
Hazardous to Your Health: Pastoring Through Church Challenges
We have a great range of speakers on a variety of church challenges topics. You can hear Diane Langberg talk about leadership; Rev. Rick Tyson talking about ministry depression; two pastor’s wives talking about the unique challenges they face; An attorney address legal challenges; John Freeman address sexual brokenness in the church, and much much more. I will be concluding the conference with the final plenary devoted to describing a simple revolution in the area pastoral renewal. Rev. Philip G. Ryken will participate with me to describe some ways he is meeting the challenge of ongoing spiritual care.
Please torture your ministry friends and acquaintances to come. It will be a refreshing and useful time for them. Especially invite spouses of ministry leaders. They almost never get any kind of opportunity to be blessed and encouraged.
Here’s the link to purchase a ticket for attendees (check out the lower rate for students and guests of ministry leaders!). Registration includes lunch and comedic entertainment:
