Reflections from the Clergy and Congregational Well-being Conference 

I recently attended a conference at Duke University in North Carolina on congregational and clergy health in the church. It was an inspiring experience to be surrounded by so many people of different denominations and backgrounds, all united by the common goal of strengthening and healing the clergy and congregations in their care. The conference made me think about the importance of community and mentorship, and how working alone can feel isolating and futile when faced with the massive changes that need to be made. The story of Elijah in the Bible reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles, and that God cares for his leaders and is doing something beautiful for his church.

Professional Supervision for Principals, Pastors and Leaders

As a mentor and professional supervisor, I have found that providing a safe space for leaders to discuss their thoughts and emotions can be incredibly beneficial. Recently, I was supervising a young pastor who was struggling with a difficult situation involving a team member. By reflecting on how Jesus responded to similar situations, we were able to find new ways of thinking and responding for my supervisee. It’s important to consider not only the supervisee in a presenting issue, but also to guide them in considering Jesus’ responses to all those involved. Remember that Jesus suffered and endured every test and temptation, so that he can help us every time we pass through the ordeals of life.
