Free Webinar: Soul Care in the Midst of Church Planting

We live in a 24/7 culture of endless productivity, workaholism, distraction, burnout, and anxiety–a way of life to which we’ve sadly grown accustomed. Church Planters live in this exhausted world and by nature of starting a new church from scratch feel the pressure to make an impact immediately. It is easy to give into this urgent system of survival and find it ultimately destroying your soul, your body, your relationships, and your love for God’s people. We need to find a way to enter into and lead from God’s rest.

In this FREE Q & A webinar you will learn:

  •  Why the practice of Sabbath-keeping is God’s plan for the healing of all creation
  •  How Sabbath is both a spiritual discipline and a form of social justice
  •  How Sabbath-keeping can save your church plant
  •  How embracing a rhythm of life functions in church planting.

You will receive practical helps for your journey and are invited to participate in Q & A – don’t miss this valuable experience!
