Inaugural Conference on Clergy Wellness to Debut at IWUMonday, September 23, 2013
In partnership with the Wesleyan Church, Indiana Wesleyan University is pleased to announce our first conference on clergy wellness: Flourishing in Pastoral Ministry. If you are involved in a ministry as a caregiver of clergy to foster overall, holistic clergy well being, then you will not want to miss this opportunity to learn and network with others who are also involved in this vitally important task.
The conference will be held at Indiana Wesleyan University on October 11, 2013. Dr. Everett Worthington, Jr., Virginia Commonwealth University, will provide the keynote address. Dr. Worthington is a well known Christian, a Professor of Counseling Psychology, and the author of numerous best-selling books.
This interdisciplinary conference is a rare and significant opportunity to call together scholars and leaders from a variety of fields across the church to explore the best practices, systems, and supports for clergy health and well being. Our hope is to make a significant, lasting contribution to the overall effectiveness of clergy caregivers.
We know that clergy face numerous challenges in all stages of their ministry career, regardless of the sizes, locations, or social contexts of their churches. This conference is designed to help you help them to thrive throughout their ministry. Through the keynote addresses and the breakout sessions, you will be able to explore and discuss emerging research and empirically-based practices for working with ministers.
Thank you for considering this significant opportunity to contribute to the ministry success of clergy everywhere.
