Burnout in Ministry'
At this workshop, we welcomed individuals ministering in various organisations. The group of about 30 people consisted of pastors, counselors , social workers and missionaries. We learnt about early signs of burnout, typical causes of burnout, and how to deal with burnout once you see certain symptoms.The diverse group shared their experiences with each other and provided excellent tips of their own.
I learned that I'm not the only one who struggles with certain things in ministry. I now know what early sign to keep in mind to prevent me getting close to burnout.
In April 2018 we hosted a workshop about boundaries. About ten people, of various walks of life, attended. It was hosted by our Life Coach, Chris de Beer. Not only did he give great insights regarding the topic, he also shared some of his own experiences regarding the efficient and less-efficient ways of managing boundaries.
What a great experience! Before this event I've never really thought about boundaries in my life. It opened a whole new world for me. I learnt a lot from the inputs of various other attendees.
