Leader Self-Care facilitates a healthy ministry by setting and maintaining boundaries, working with a Pastor Congregation Relations Committee, creating a ministry/family balance, and other activities. Mark Miller is a pastor with CMC and a long-time pastor. In our current situation, this class is quite relevant. Wheaton University recently posted a resource for leaders where it says, “to care for others well during this season of COVID-19 will require us to learn how to care for ourselves at the same time” (https://www.wheaton.edu/media/humanitarian-disaster-institute/tip-sheets/Final-pastor-self-care-during-COVID-19.pdf). Also note the leader resources at https://lmcchurches.org/pastoral-resource/.
Training in Ministry, or TiM, developed through a collaboration of Rosedale Bible College, CMC, and LMC. The program includes a total of 16 courses organized in five tracks. The complete program brochure is attached. Each 10-week course earns three credits and costs $900.
Students who complete three courses in a track will be invited to attend a free course (3-credits) in a retreat format at Rosedale Bible College in August of 2021.
As you consider this option for yourself, consider others in your congregation who might similarly benefit, pass on this information, and encourage their participation.
