You’ve been through a difficult year, most likely with scars (and sheep bite marks) to prove it. The virus, the changing economy, the racial crisis, and the toxic political climate has hit everyone in one way or another.
Additionally, you have been uniquely impacted by all of them—in a compounded way—because you are the shepherd of the whole flock.
On top of that, you’ve had to adapt your work in ways that are constantly shifting, endlessly frustrating, and (no matter how hard you try!) still unsatisfying.
Few realize the impact this has on our pastors. We do. We see you, and we’ve created this online retreat just for you – at no cost to you.
Every day, J. D. will send you an early morning email—like a private Daily Text. Our subject will be Paul’s letter to the Philippians.
Every Thursday (starting Jan. 21) we will gather on Zoom from 2:00 to 4:00pm CT. Each week we’ll bring a different “Pastor’s Pastor” to encourage and minister to us. Dr. David Thomas, Senior Advisor to the New Room and a pastor’s pastor himself, will host these sessions along with others from our team.
The balance of the time will be spent in ministry together, some corporate, some breakout, all personal. Beyond the deep restoration and renewal of our first love, we have no agenda. This is a meeting with Jesus. He will bring the agenda and he will personalize it for each of us. That’s it. This will be an extravagant sowing unto the Lord.
Because of the generous support of the Seedbed community—who loves and believes in you—we’re able to off this retreat totally free of charge.
