We know how busy and sometimes stressful ministry life can be, particularly when you can't afford to take time off to enjoy a treat or relaxing between appointments or meetings. It can also be difficult to go out for a break if you live in an isolated area with limited access to coffee shops, beaches to walk on, or spaces to escape to! You don't have to look far to find research suggesting that taking time out is crucial for your mental health and physical well being.
With the risk of burnout being high in clergy workers & their spouses (John Mark Ministries), like in many caring professions, it's even more important to take this time to relax and rejuvenate. This way you're able to not only care for yourself, but also your family and ministry.
Which is why we want to bring a time out to you!
We're passionate about you being cared for and having the time and resources to look after yourself in amongst your ministry commitments. In fact, this is so important to us that we're committed to sending Relax Packs out to clergy & clergy families free-of-charge.
If you would like one of these packs, or know someone who might enjoy one, we would love to send you one - it isn't an inconvenience, it's our privilege. Visit our Relax Pack page to order one for yourself or someone you know in ministry who might enjoy one. It's our small way of saying thank you for your hard work and faithful ministry. :)
And don't worry, your details aren't used for anything other than sending a Relax Pack (we don't like spam either!)
We look forward to hearing from you :)
