Refresh - A Ministry to Pastors

Launch Event Friday November 12th, 9:00a-10:30a

Location: Waypoint Church 6804 Farrington Road Chapel Hill, NC  27517

Pastoring is hard in normal times. Yet we have seen unprecedented pressure and discouragement in pastors over this past year. Pastors are struggling. Commitment from members is lower than ever. Political polarization is at a fever pitch. Criticism of the pastor and suspicion of the church are pervasive. Amidst all of it, pastors are still human. They still experience the highs and lows of life like anyone else. Every month, we hear about pastors either leaving their positions or closing their churches. Pastors need support to navigate through the emotional toll of shepherding the flock of God.

This Fall, we’re launching Refresh: A Ministry for Pastors. We want to care for pastors and encounter the Redeemer who loves and empowers pastors for the difficult work of ministry. Through large gatherings, smaller cohorts, one-on-one counseling, and sabbatical care, we hope to be a conduit of the rest and refreshment that only God can provide.
