Energy and creativity are essential to a successful church leader, but these are not unlimited resources. Without built-in times of rest and renewal, leaders eventually lose that freshness that allows them to bring their best to their ministry work. This is often because they do not feel they can take time off, or don't know how to build opportunities for renewal into their routine.

This 22-page resource includes articles from seasoned ministry veterans that will help you pursue rest and renewal in your own life, and help you lead others to do the same.
