Rest For the Weary

A Three-Week Online Experience to Survive Pastoral Exhaustion and Combat Compassion Fatigue.

Are You Exhausted?

Exhaustion is the single most-expressed feeling from pastors these days.  This lab will take a look at some of the causes as well as the symptoms.  Dr. Reggie McNeal will offer some insights and advice for building your resilience.  Topics will include battling burnout as well as compassion fatigue, along with tips for Sabbathing and looking out for your brain and emotional health. There will be some instruction as well as peer interaction.

Reggie has worked with thousands of church leaders over the past three decades:  leaders from every major denomination, non-denominational congregations, and faith-based non-profits (Salvation Army, Campus Crusade, etc.).  In addition to his speaking, coaching, and consulting, much of his writing as been devoted to the development of Christian leaders.  His Work of Heart: How God Shapes Spiritual Leaders has been used as a text for many seminary leadership courses as well as by the US Army in their Chaplains School. 

Chemistry Staffing is very happy to team up with Reggie for this three-week much-needed Lab. We hope you can join us. This lab is limited to 12 participants. Calls are scheduled for three consecutive Tuesdays (November 17, 24, December 1) at 3:30 eastern.

Your Chemistry Lab Experience

Rest for the Weary: Braking Before Breaking Lab includes:

STAGE 1:
BATTLING PASTORAL BURNOUT

2020 will be known as one of the hardest times to pastor EVER in America. Many pastors are exhausted and facing burnout. We’ll identify the sources and give remedies for pastoral burnout.

STAGE 2:
DIAGNOSING COMPASSION FATIGUE

Scripture says “do not grow weary in doing good” for one reason: It’s possible to grow weary in doing good.  We’ll discuss how to combat “Compassion Fatigue” and get back on a healthy track

STAGE 3:
TAKING A GENUINE BIBLICAL SABBATH

When was the last time you took a true Sabbath? Most church leaders don’t. We’ll identify key steps to instituting a Biblical Sabbath into your lifestyle that will show nearly immediate benefits.

STAGE 4:
ESTABLISHING BRAIN & EMOTIONAL HEALTH

Reggie has done a tremendous amount of study into emotional health for pastors. He’ll share with you how to put all the pieces of your life together in order to combat exhaustion.
